How can I display on the screen what view I am in?

Should this also work when you edit an entry? For me, the table/detail view have the name in header, but when I go into edit mode it is just the app name that shows again

Same for adding new entries

Yes… at this moment it shows all view names. For example… if you haven’t created any views for the form view (you use the automatic form), it uses the app’s name. You can see this from the emulator…

If you want to see the form name, you need to create your own form view.

Ah yes you are right, I had done this but forgot that the table view was defined on a table and the form view on a slice, and hence it did not work.

When I am adding a child entry to a parent item, it does not update the view name though.

Example: I have a table ‘order’ and a field ‘buyer’, which is a ref to table ‘person’. When I want to add a new buyer from the order view, I would expect the header to change from ‘order’ to ‘person’, but it doesn’t.

It would be good to have this change, because for an app user it can be tricky to know where they are, especially within these form with a form environments.
