Visibility based on an attribute of referenced object
I have two entities. An entity, called Key, defines the name of the key and the expected data type for it; the other entity, called Values, references the Key and contains StringValue, DateValue, and DecimalValue attributes. When I author values, I am selecting Key via the reference selector and would like to change visibility of data entry fields of Values entity based on the type of the key. Unfortunately, when I try to define the editability rule based on expression, I do not see to have access to attributes of Key entity. What is the best practice solving such problem?
Miroslav Samoylenko DO NOT USE
For managing visibility via microflow for instance you could use the ‘ShowByCondition’ widget from the AppStore. For managing editability based on a microflow you could use the ‘EditableByCondition’ widget from the AppStore.
Another alternative would be to store the key also on the values entity via an enumeration. Obviously not a best practice though. Would be best if Mendix implemented those widgets into the platform..
