OData V2, expand, bind to form - how?

0 Kudos


we have an odata service that returns many many entity sets.

there is an association between the main entity set and most of the others.

the association is one to many. this means that when we do a read or bind using the expand parameter we get an array of entities from the entity set.

we can bind the result to a table in a view.

we will only ever get one element in the returned array.

our requirement is to bind to a form so that the data can be edited.

we have not been successful in making this happen.

any thoughts greatly appreciated. see below for how we try to bind.

I think this scenario requires the Split-Screen Layout (used to call it Master-Details).

This way you can drill-down to associated entities and do CRUD actions.

I think you can use Value Help in the form. Based on user selection you can set that single value in the form input field and allow user to make the changes.
