The Constrained by option as in Web is not available in Native. Until Mendix adds that to Native as well, the next best option is to use popup pages. I use a button with a caption to show that a selection can be made, if a selection has been made, the caption shows the selected item. Clicking the button opens the selection page. You will need to use a datasource nanoflow for the second selection page to restrict the items in the list.
Especially for phone apps you could implement a wizard style approach where each selection is on a separate page, showing the list of available items directly. Tapping an item selects it, updates the object and opens the next step. The final page would then show the completed form.
Hello Erik ten Asbroek,
Your Domain Model is correctly configured. All you need is to configure your reference selector widget for Model to constrain it using the Constrained by option present under the XPath Menu of the “Selectable objects” path. When you click on it, Mendix will automatically prompt you to select the path via the Brand (since your Domain model is already configured in a correct way)
A more detail information on constraining the second reference selector based on the first can be found in Mendix Docs which is very well explained. I am attaching the link here for future reference.
Incase if this answer helped you in figuring out the solution to your problem, do mark the answer as “Accepted” which helps others to find out the answers faster. :)
you can use xpath as answered above or microflow if you want to use microflow as data source for selectable object you can retrieve models associated with the chosen brand using retrieve by association
For reference (joke not intended), this is what I see when editing the reference selector:
