Is there a way in which you might provide an answer to the following:
(A) In what I call "Bulk Insert Mode" (which is just staying in the Insert page after an insertion has been made) I would like to have available all previous selections I already have made in the dropdownlists of the previous entry. All
other might as well be "reset" for fields like dates, text, numbers, etc.
I need to implement this feature as to make data entry easier to the end user. e.g.:
Imagine you are entering products into a catalog and the products table has (let's suppose) 20 Foreign Keys belonging to reference data as : type of product, type of package, brandname, type of transaction, accounting code, country of origin, warehouse code,
userlogin, dataentry, color, container type, type, shipment number, etc.
As it is now in Dynamic Data after an insertion has been made it takes yoiu back to the List page and if you choose Insert again then everything has been already reset and you have to start from scratch ...all fields are empty and the dropdowwnlits are set
to [No Set] ... pretty ugly, uh? (... ooops ! sorry for the oxymoron)
(B) I'd also like to know the way in which I could implement cascading among filters considering its inheritance
(I don't know the word in Englih but I am refering to children, father, grand father, grand grand father, ... tatara tatata father, etc.)
So if I had solved the problem of carrying on while Bulk Inserting (as it was in FoxPro) I'd also like to have a way (I know we might as well have to build a matrix as to define properly this uthopical behavior) of having all of my dropdownlists linked among
themselves by the chain of FKs associated to them so if I choose to change a dropdownlist then all dependent childrens
will have to "react" and be filled with "consisten data" in accordance with the filter you just changed.
