Hi,

is there any way to override the noedit on a foreign field in the inner rows of a multi2 - I've tried unsetting noedit in _cm_changeConfig and not seeing the foreign field in the fieldspec tried adding it to the field array? I realise its disabled for a very good reason but was hoping I would then be able to add a bit of custom code to separate the foreign field data and its primary key to update the foreign table prior to the update of the main table.

basically I'm trying to add/update many rows showing member(one) and membership (many ie each year) in a single screen. The outer table of the multi2 is the branch. With hundreds of members per branch I was hoping to be able to mimic the simplicity of our existing msaccess app which can add and amend member names and current year membership details in a single multirow screen.

Thanks

Lyndon

The 'noedit' property can be removed at runtime with code similar to the following in the '_cm_changeConfig()' method:
unset($this->fieldspec['fieldname']['noedit');

It is not sufficient to turn 'noedit' = 'y' into 'noedit' = 'n'.

If the field is part of the primary key then removing the 'noedit' property will have no effect.

Took me a while to sort it out due to my lack of understanding and some data and validation errors preventing the updates but now working well with very little code thanks to your excellent framework. Merged foreign fields in _cm_getForeignData, added fieldspecs in _cm_changeConfig and a couple of lines in _cm_post_updateMultiple to update the foreign table using the same data and only a couple more to merge messages and errors from both tables.

Thanks

I'm glad you got it sorted out. Once you understand the logic of the Radicore framework it is amazing how much you can do with so little code. It does simple things very easily, but when things start becoming less simple it is just a matter of knowing what custom code needs to be put into which custom method.
