Hi there experts,
We have a Confiforms form that fills data in using a database. We use the form like a workflow: a user issues a request (filled with database fields) and there is another team that takes the request and works with it.
It is possible that the database content might be updated outside of confiforms. Then, we would like our confiforms table to be updated again from the very same database, so the team can see the updated rows and work with the latest information.
Is it possible?
Thanks in advance
Which Confiforms field definition does that?
For instance, in database mulitselect the user has to make a choice between database values. Obviously a change in DB wouldn't do that because its a user choice. The same for dropdown and smart clasiffiers.
Which one could be a text field backed by database fields in realtime?
Which means that updating this data in a table will immediately show the change in ConfiForms
Which table ? database table o confiforms table?
Obviously if i update the data in the confiforms table it will show the change in Confiforms. This question is about to change the data in the database and show the change automatically in confiforms table view.
Thanks for the help
Well, I think there is still a misunderstanding here - ConfiForms is not a UI for your database tables. It can show the data, but to manage databases/tables and the contents it is not the right tool. There are plenty of tools that provide that
That is why you dont see any tutorials on that on ConfiForms WIKI
True that you can set ConfiForms to do that, but that is really not something it is designed for - https://wiki.vertuna.com/display/TEST/CRUD+-+Simple+demo+to+show+how+to+setup+ConfiForms+to+save+data+to+database+table
Sorry, the CRUD tutorial you provided is not what I want, in spite of the fact that its very interesting.
I wanted only to view the confiform rows updated (with db data) WHEN the user actually access the table view.
Anyway thanks for the quick help and interest shown.
