Cannot see a collection entity when defining forms

Hello,

When I am defining my forms I cannot see the attributes of a certain collection entity.

My data model is as follows: Entity A has many Entity B, which has many Entity C...

The atrributes I need are those of Entity C but it does not appear at all in de Data binding panel.

Can someone explain why I do not see this entity?Thanks in advance

Dear Rbuelens ,

Take into account that the one-to-many relationships in Bizagi forms are displayed as grids.

Therefore, Bizagi does not show grids within grids (it has been seen that this is crowded and hard to follow for the end users).

Given that your Entity C relationship is held from the Entity B, to show the attributes (and their values) of Entity C, you would need to include them in an edit form of an Entity B record.

See the following images for clarification.

Data model:modelo1d

Adding entity B as a grid:

addentityb

Adding Entity C information per each row of Entity C:

addentityc

This means that in the end, your form will have an initial grid, to which for each of its rows, and end user may click for further detail at each Entity B row (to be displayed as "inside" other grid).

Best regards,

Dear Maja,

In you have one collection (table) inside of another collection (table), you need to create a form to add the first table, and then create a form to add values on the first table to add the second table. For further information: http://help.bizagi.com/bpmsuite/en/index.html?table.htm

If you require for any reason a value of the second table (which is inside of the first table), you need to follow this function: CEntityManager.GetEntity("Entity").GetEntityList("Attribute","Filter","Search","Order");
