FR - Tree Views

Post by PointsWell »

I am fighting with trees at the moment. What I really need is a Query which recursively loops through its child objects.

There is a Kendo element for it (https://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/treelist/index), but it isn't implemented in AIM and I think that is a shame and its a feature I'd like to see added

I can fake it with expand functionality BUT there are two major flaws with that:
  1. It doesn't work very well on the last record of that hierarchy and tries to expand further (ugly and misleading)
  2. I can't search on the whole hierarchy only the top level
I can fake it with a form BUT there are a lot of deficiencies.

It would also be really cool to be able to do proper aggregates on this tree.

I desperately need hierarchical queries.

You can fake it in a query at the moment but it is ugly as hell and doesn't cope with the last child, showing you a No Records Query Result (and I haven't been able to put operations on child records and display a form in the default output adequately - the sub queries are in their own layout inside the main query layout.)

Or you can fake it in a form, but you can't get the root BO into the hierarchy (if you include OB and OM attributes into the one tree you get an infinite recursive loop), and the tree in the form cannot be set to full screen - it must have a defined height.
