I want to build something similar to having Master/Details lists inside sharepoint online. so i follow an approach mentioned on this YouTube video, which mainly do these steps:-
- created 2 lists (Master & Details)
- then inside the Details list they added a lookup field to reference the Master list.
- using SP designer, inside the Master list's display form, they added a Data View component to reference the Details list, as follow:-
now i tried this appraoch inside my test team site and i got this result, which worked well, keeping in mind that it only took me less than an hour to do. so this is a fast appraoch to implement an acceptable result, here is the result inside the Master item display form:-
But i am facing these 2 issues and 1 question:-
Inside the Master display form, i was not able to move the Master item's metadata info (created, modified, content type info), to be below the Data View items. not sure if this is actually possible.
if i access the Master item's display form in modern interface, then the Data View component will not be shown !! so can i conclude that modern interfaces will skip any Data View component added to the list forms? if this is the case, then i need to re-think of using Data Views, as we are trying to use the modern interfaces as much as possible.
i am not sure if i can add a Data View component in edit mode, inside my Master list's edit form, which will allow me to add Details items, while editing the Master item?
