  • I have a nested migx grid. If I wanted to duplicate the record in the parent grid and have it duplicate the child MIGX grid, how to do that?

    The nested grid is a migxdb type, not migx JSON string.

      first, you will need to have a way, to check in the update-processor (or in a customized save-function of your object)
      if this is a duplication.

      This should be simple.
      Add a (hidden) field with the id of your source-object to the form

      Then, on update, if the object_id is 'new' and the source-object - id is not empty, it seems to be a duplicate.
      Now you can duplicate the children with getMany/addMany inside your customized update-processor (or in a customized save-function of your parent-object)
        -------------------------------

        you can buy me a beer, if you like MIGX

        Thanks!
      • Ahhh, the hidden field is what I was missing as a means to get the source object id.

        I'll work on this later today and post the final for others.

        thanks

          Hi Jason, is it possible for you to post the customized update-processor (or save-function) you used to accomplish this? OR did you take another route? I am getting stuck on the same problem. Thanks!
