Editing a record

Editing a record

  
Can "Textbox, Radio button, Checkbox" widget controls, be inserted into a page and be used to edit record without the edit record widget? or does it need to be placed inside an edit record widget?

Hi Robert,

 

Sure. You can use input widgets without a problem without using a edit record: just create some variables to set to those those widgets' variable property and then in the screen action you can use their values.

Tiago,

I tried placing an "input" widget onto a page, added a variable however it requires a "parent edit record"

I'm assuming an "edit record" widget will need to be added first, so that the "input" widget can make reference to it?

Hi Robert,

 

Sorry, I don't quite understand your issue. Parent Edit Record is optional and as such you do not need an Edit Record in your screen.

I'm I missing something?

Hi Tiago

That's weird, i tried it again just then and you are right "Parent Edit Record" is optional.

Everything should be ok now.

thanks
