I'm converting an existing project from 4.4 to 5.1. Seems like the DataViewList widget is not compatible with the latest version. Does anyone know of any alternative widgets or if Mendix is going to update the widget? Error Msg: ".parseConfig: No form defined for entity MyEntity. Check the form mapping"
The DataViewList will not be updated for Mendix 5. Instead, we have implemented its functionality in the built-in List View widget in Mendix 5.3.1. The ListView has two new features:
Inheritance: you can model a different template for each specialization of the main entity. So, in the case of a questionnaire, the template for a YesNoQuestion can be different from the template for an OpenQuestion.
Editing: the list view can be made editable. Saving the changes happens with a 'Save' button, or though "On change" event handlers. Note that editing disables paging (all items are shown at once) and searching.
Having this functionality built-in makes it much more user-friendly: you do not need to make a page for each specialization, for example. I hope you like it!

Isn't the (native) listview an alternative for what you try to achieve?
The company Flock of Birds did created a version that works with Mx 5.1.1
Form View Loader
Please not this is a experimental fix and I did not fully retested every functionality.
If you come across any issue, let me know.
The widget is not updated for Mendix 5.1 yet. The way arrays are passed is changed. File a bug report.
