I’m trying to make a computer inventory App.
So far, I’ve got 3 tables.
- (computer) Parts
- Parts Category.
Parts are assigned to computers.
Parts that are not assigned to a computer are filtered in a Slice called Available_Part
What I’m having trouble doing is the following.
On system generated Computer_Detail view, it shows the parts referenced to that computer.
As I don’t want users to be able to add parts from this view, I was able to hide the Parts Add action in the inline parts table in this view by using this action behavior condition:
Now I want to create an action that when clicked, shows a list of available parts (e.g. from the slice i created). Then, when on of this parts is clicked, it automatically updates that part’s [Computer] field to the computer I was in the Computer_Detail view.
Alternatively, it could open a form, with a dropdown of available parts.
So far, what I was able to create was an Computer Action, that links to a view of the Sliced Available_Part. From there users have to click on one of the parts, then the edit button, than change the Computer record from blank to the desired computer. Than save.
