Is there any capabilities in Nintex forms to do a nested data grid?

Jump to solution

I have a requirement to display (and edit) data in a nested-grid.  I've been researching the capabilities of Nintex Forms and I can't find any illustrations on whether the repeating control can do nesting and if so, how would I manage the parent/child relationship?

Also - if this is possible, would I have client-side control of the controls with JavaScript?

Good Evening David Petersen​!

Have you explored the Xchange Marketplace for sample solutions? There's some really great resources out there in terms of repeating control based grids and solutions for handling parent-child relationships.

Thanks!

Patrick

I'm not sure those will work.  I'm enclosing a picture of the type of UX that I want to accomplish.

I need to have programmatic control over the main grid and the subgrids so I can add/edit/delete rows.

such a functionality is not available OOTB in nintex.

but if you google for 'html5 grid' you will find plenty of examples and already built libraries how to make it using html5, jquery and css. I have never use it (yet) but I think they might work within nintex.

David Petersen I was hoping a nested SharePoint list could meet your needs, but it sounds like you're after something a little more custom.

I can confirm that Marian Hatala​'s recommendation is doable, but it's a pretty significant client-side code effort.

Thank you Marian.  It confirms what I have been finding in my research.

Thanks Patrick.  Since I have already inherited a significant amount of custom JavaScript code for the existing form, I think I am going to go away from Nintex Forms and write an SPA using either Knockout or Angular.  The complexity of the project has made Nintex Forms a hindrance rather than a help.

As all I saw in all kinds of Q&A, Almost all were about XXX-steps clicks or Using jQuery the ugly way. All in all, just Ugly styles and implements(including me), you are the first developer that used Knockout, you are the real software engineer!!!
