LINKTOROW([Key],"View") goes to a blank form if supplied a non-existing key value.
This would be helpful, by allowing you to create the record if one doesn’t already exist with that key.
[Key] value is not passed to the form, and more importantly, the Key-column’s initial value is also ignored.
This means that if your
[Key] is hidden from the form the user is unable to save.
Many APIs will automatically convert a
PUT (update-record) into a
POST (create-record) if the provided Key is not found, and vice-versa for a
POST when the Key already exists.
I think this would be a useful feature for
LINKTOROW() to automatically switch to
LINKTOFORM() when the provided Key does not exist, but the key-value needs to be filled in somehow.
