related Document Folders


Posted by Hubbaroo - Feb 13 ’14 at 06:16

We have a form with several related items in tabs, works great, thanks. I just added a third related control in the third tab to handle related folders in a document library. The relation seems to work and returnes the currect folder for the parent. The issue is whan I click the related "Folder". The folder does not open and after the form blinks we are left at the parent form. I hope this is clear.

    If you have multiple Related items controls on a form you will not be able to navigate within their folders because when you open some folder, the current page is reloaded with RootFolder query parameter which contains the selected folder. This parameter is not unique for the specific Related items control. In other words, it is shared between all views on a form. So, other Related items controls also try to navigate to the specified folder without success. We will research the issue deeper and I hope we will find a workaround.

    [#1]: Hm, Any suggestions on how to provide a link to folder in library? Each folder has a lookup to the parent, created by a workflow. We were wanting to provide the link using the related items functionality but that sounds out.


    Thanks again.

    [#2]: Any news on using folders in related items. This could be great if something has been updated.


    Thank you!

    There are no news, we're sad to say! Maybe if you describe what you're trying to achieve we'd be able to come up with a solution?
