Master Multi Details

QuestionsMaster Multi Details
Gary Brett asked 5 years ago

Hi there, is it possible to have 3 grids as per your demo looking at 3 different tables? I have clients, notes & tasks tables are with client_id field.

I can set the master & notes or master & tasks but cant seem to have all 3 on one page. The last table, tasks does not reference the client_id from the master?

Sample code is if it helps at all?

To connect master with 2 grids, set:

$opt["detail_grid_id"] = "list2,list3";

Refer demos/mastergrid/master-multi-detail.php

Hi Abu, thank you I have already added that to code but no joy. If I change the query to an actual value it does display that data but on changing back to parent id it doesn't pull through in list3..

WHERE client_id = $id"; works in list2 but not list3, changing to WHERE client_id = 5"; for example outputs client_id 5 from tbl_tasks?

I also note on the demo that we cant change columns [hide, title etc] as I I set $grid->set_columns($cols); on list 3 it includes list 2 columns in list 3 grid?

Any ideas?

Reset all variables before using in other grid.

For e.g. if var $cols is used in first grid, then null it before using in next.
$cols = array();

Same applies to all others which are reused.

Hi Abu, I have list 2 & 3 working now but still am unable to set columns on grid 3, for example a date column or hiding columns when adding?

I notice on your master-multi-detail demo that the data column in list 3 is formatted as a date however setting the client_id column as hidden doesn't hide it?

$col = array();
$col["title"] = "Client Id";
$col["name"] = "client_id";
$col["width"] = "10";
$col["editable"] = true;
$col["hidden"] = true;
$cols[] = $col;

In list 2 you have $grid->set_columns($cols); but I cant add that to list 3 to achieve the above?

Thank you

Sorry full code is here

Abu Ghufran answered 5 years ago

Refer this:

My suggestion is, when ever you use $cols and set_columns($cols) … reset them. e.g.

$cols = array();

Excellent, I missed the $cols=array(). Many thanks once more
