Field Values from a Parent Record

You can copy field values from the parent record to a new child record.

Example: When the user creates a new person for a company, the content of the company's Country field is copied to the person record.

  1. Define a List control in the field group containing the fields you want to copy.
  2. Select the desired field in the Fields area and enter the names for the fields you want to copy in the Function field.

  3. Enter this field group's name in the CopySourceFieldGroupName parameter of the assigned action, e.g. the NewView action for the AddPerson button.
  4. You can enter the fields with the $par prefix combined with their function names in the Template filter to access the values from the parent record.
