3 Discussion

JF 28 Oct 2013: We appreciate the feature and schedule it for 4.5. We would prefer "New Value" over "New Record". Please keep in mind that this feature cannot always be provided (e.g. if the referenced table contains other required fields).
HL, 24.3.2014: Need more information about the crowdfunding initiative?
See Blog-posting (Feature 2):
or Crowdfunding-page:
If you want to contribute to this crowdfunding initiative by financing one or more of the listed features, please contact Hansjörg Lauener or Matthias Kunkel for further details.

4 Implementation

A first version of this feature is now available in the trunk (atm only for single references to other dc tables).
Next to the dropdown menu there is a link to add a new value. The create-form of the referenced table is opened in the right ILIAS overlay, where the user can create a new entry. After creating the new entry, it gets selected in the dropdown.
