Hi Everyone, this is my first post, but before I get to my question, I want to say as a former IT Director what a great tool you have, but also as an Angular web developer, I wish I had more control over the user interface!
After learning from the sample apps, I decided to strike out on my own and create something. I decided on something familiar like an Address Book found in many email programs. I wanted to capture more than one email address per contact. Everything is progressing well, but I got hung up on some odd behavior of Email Address of type EMAIL.
In the Inline view, I see the clickable email icon. That’s great functionality, but I’d also like to see the Email Address text. My solution was to create a Virtual Column called Email Address Text of type TEXT that simply takes on the value of Email Address. I was able to get this to work to my satisfaction, but then I discovered problems elsewhere, particularly when I edit the Contact. Now the Inline view shows the Email Address as text, not as an icon. The result is that I see two columns for Email Address, both are text.
I’d like the Inline view to behave like this:
- Show the Email Address icon and text when viewing the Contact.
- Show only the Email Address text when editing the Contact.
I’m sure that this is a lot easier than I’m making it out to be. All help welcome!
