Change layout in detail view which pop up when click on Ref list in form view

I found that when i click on the table view of ref list in form view, It will pop up as detail view. Can we change to use card layout ?

Hi @Nuttawutz

in UX/View/(pick your view name) /View type


For example of my case


Could you please help me specific which view that pop up reference from ?
I mean i want to change pop up that show detail view to be like card layout.

I already change Main Product , Detail view to use Card layout but it didn’t affect the pop up view.

What happens if you click on the arrow on the right, instead of clicking on the first column of the inline ?
Can you get the view name associated with the pop-up this way, then change it ?

If the displayed view is set up as a card view type, that should be displayed as…a card view type :slight_smile:
Otherwise, it sounds like a bug to me.


When i click on the arrow on the right, It still show pop up the detail view which i don’t know where i can find the view name of this pop up.


As last part of Gif - You will see that when i click on the product on the main detail view, It’s already show in card layout.

It might be bug as you said. Thank you for helping me.

You have the view name here: it behaves like a shortcut to the view settings.
What do you get at clicking there ? (please also check “show system view” in the UX panel if not done before)

View : Form

List is show from Virtual column type Ref List

when i click on this list, it will show pop up with detail view.

when user select column name “Extra” (Type Enumlist : Ref type), It will show the virtual column which come from dereference of column “Extra”.

I think the best way to manage it, is to create a slice, define a card view based on this slice, and then set your virtual column of list of ref on this slice.

Let us know if that works for you ?

I have try create slice and also set virtual column use that slice. It didn’t work too.

Did you manage to create a view for this specific slice dataset ?

Yes, I have create view that use this data.


Then I don’t have more ideas on how to solve your issue, sorry :sweat_smile:

The only thing I can say is that you may want to use the formula REF_ROWS() instead of the SELECT:
REF_ROWS("Sale Extra detail", "Extra") (similar expression with children columns)

but I’m still stuck with your view issue.
Normally, a custom-made view takes the lead on default view when it comes to displaying data.
So, for your slice, the custom view should be used, unless I’m wrong.

I allow myself to call @Steve on rescue for this case :slight_smile:

You cannot change the presentation of ref table details in form views.


Thank you for this clarification @Steve :slight_smile:
