When you have a child table that needs to contain multiple rows for every parent table row (referenced by key value, with automatically created ref_rows reverse reference column), is there some trick to getting the empty inline list to show up on a form view for the parent table?

I’ve got it setup on another set of tables, but I can’t figure out what I’m doing wrong, or not doing, for a new set of tables.

Some photos: 1. The form from the existing and working table set, notice the big “New” button under “Inventory Adjustments”, that’s what I want on my new form. 2. The form for the new set of tables, missing the empty Inline view, or the “New” button. 3. If I create an invoice without child rows, then click on the Detail view of it, I get the empty inline view where I can add stuff, which means the refs are working.

As is fairly typical, I realized the solution a few minutes after my head hit the pillow.

The ref column of the child table needs the IsAPartOf value set to “True”.
