I wonder how to manage to have some sub-items inside a Plomino database, which link to forms or views of another database. These items should be shown in the navigation portlet. Therefore it would be great, if I could create a link object inside the database, but this is prohibited.
Do you know another way to do it?
You can create a form containing some actions (type=Redirect, and formula producing the accurate url to your external element)
or containing computed for display rich text fields producing accurate <a> tags.
And then put this form into a Plomino element portlet, so it will behave as a navigation menu.
sounds like a good idea to use a from, wich acts as page. In my case, this doesn't work, because I want to use a form, which creates multiple Plomino documents. Therfore I have to use a certain action in my form. Unfortunately, this insn't possible because the content of the form is encapsulated in a form even when I enable the "page" checkbox on the form settings.
it is not very clear
could you put your db on plomino.com so I can have a look ?
I did this now (same username as here). Unfortunately, the HTML filter on Plomino.com strips off the <form action="some/other/method"> and <input type="submit" … > tags, which surround the content of the form "person_erfassen".
anyway, can just tell me again what you try to do ? (you want to create several documents from a unique form ?)
yes, I want to create several documents, but not by a form but by a python script, which uses the context.REQUEST to get the values of the fields. I thought it might be a good idea, to use a PlominoForm, to create such a form just to avoid creating a page template.
ok i see, so if you have a Page form, you add a Submit action
then you create a computed field where you will access the submitted values like that:
f1 = plominoDocument.REQUEST.get("my_field")
and you create docs like that:
newdoc = db.createDocument()
