Repetitive containers handle data in "detail" format. Multiple items can be grouped and added or deleted.

Figure 1 shows a screen prepared with repeating containers.

A single model can contain multiple "repeating containers".(There is no upper limit.)

First of all, we prepare repetitive container type items.

After that, define the items included in the repeating container continuously.The item ID is as follows.

Container ID + "/" + Item ID

Be sure to prepare the "repeating container ID" directly under the repeated container type item.In Figure 7, "No" is equivalent to this.

Figure 7 Defining a repeating container
  • The item ID to the right of the container name should not be duplicated with other item names.For example, if an item "mdate" is already defined in the model, you can not prepare the item "report/mdate" in the container.
  • In relation to the above, you can not set the same name after the container name is different.For example, "report 1/mdate" and "report 2/mdate" are regarded as duplicates of "mdate".
  • You can not specify a container again in an item in a container.Specifically, it does not correspond to repetition repetition such as "report 1/report 2/name".
  • Likewise, elements in a container can not be repeated.Specifically, if "report/email" is prepared, this "email" can not be repeated items.
  • Container items can not be defined apart.(It is not possible to define it with a normal item in between.Be sure to define the items continuously.

If there are many columns, depending on your browser, up to 4 columns may be displayed and the 5th and subsequent column displays may be collapsed. Adjust the appearance by specifying the width of each column.

For details, please read "Layout> Repetitive Container - Column Width Adjustment".

The "repeating container ID" item is absolutely necessary.Also, this item can not be hidden.The "Add" and "Delete" buttons are displayed on the registration/update screen.Also, "repeating container ID" needs to be stored in the database.If you do not save the database, it will not work properly.

You can hide Container ID values ​​"1", "2", ....For details, please read "Hide Container ID".

Since repeated containers are divided into separate tables, there is no upper limit on the number of data that can be registered.More ...
