  • dynamic extra field like the ones on "Email" and "Phone"

    Hello,

    How to have "Adding Button" to add dynamic extra field like the ones on "Email" and "Phone". I want to be able to add extra field under "varchar" and "Date" and of course to be recorded to db.

    I have tried to modify varchar.js and date.js under directory \client\src\views\fields\ and modifying template files varchar and date under directory \client\res\templates\fields

    But I can't get it to work!

    Other alternative option which would be much better is to have same function but on Panel instead of the field itself. on Details view, I want the user to be able to click on "Add" button to be able dynamically adding extra repeated panel for other person, Can you please help me to achieve this!

    Please see attached image

    Thanks

    Hi
    with panels can't help.
    What was the problem? You had add button, but it didn't work, or you didn't had the button after modification? (Did you refresh the page? Js and tmp files can be cached)

      Hello,

      Well I have tried so many things in the past few days and they all seemed not to work for me and I gave up . If you can not help with panels, then would you please help me to configure "Plus Button" for varchar and date fields as I want to be able to enter multiple names and dates as shown on the attached image.

      Edit: Just to make myself clear, I didn't create the button yet, the attached image is photoshop. It is example of what I want but I don't know how to do it! So please provide me with a code and tell me where to place it in the script

      Thank you

        Hello
        At first - do not change core files, after upgrade you can lose your modification

        create own view and templates, where will be the plus button (you can copy some from phoneNumber templates)

        in the view do not forget to add handler for click plus button (click [data-action="addPhoneNumber"] in phone filed) in the events section, and about fetching data

        change field view in entityDefs

        use phone or email as example

          Hello,
          Originally posted by tanya View Post

          Where exactly should I create my own view and templates. I am assuming the only places would be under \client\res\templates\fields\varcharPlus\ and \client\src\views\fields\varcharPlus.js

          So I should copy all tpl files from \client\res\templates\fields\phone\ and modify them and do same thing to the phone.js from \views\fields\phone.js. if you answer with yes, then I have tried that already and it didn't work at all.

          Would you please do it for me for varchar type and I will try to follow your steps with Date type. It should be simple to you if you know how to do it.

          So I want varcharPlus field type to show up in the "Add field" list under the "Entity Manager" as showing on attached image.


          Thank you very much and I really appropriate your help

            if you wanna see the field in the field list, learn this folder /application/Espo/Resources/metadata/fields (there you have to set field params) (...."fieldDefs":{ "type":"jsonArray"}....)
            how field has to work - /client/src/views/fields
            field templates - /client/res/templates/fields
