I was attempting to remote into my admin tool computer so I could put together a demo for you but I'm unable to right now.
To hide or grey out certain "controls" on the datacard, look up "Control Logic" in the data card editor. This seems closest to what you are needing to accomplish.
You can also control visibility of tabs by user group membership (more complex), and you can also dynamically populate listboxes based on inputs in other listboxes.
Hope this helps,
Thanks for responding to my post again. Currently I do use control logic, however this only works on certain items, not tabs unfortunately. As far as controlling tab visibility by groups, I cant do that because I want everyone in a certain group to see or not see tabs depending on which variable they choose in the control Drop List.
I might not be of any help but I have done something similar on template card. I used a radio button to control a tabbed section for images. As an example if they selected
Product A radio button, Product A's image tab will show, or reversed. I hooked both to same variable though, so could be only be one, either A or B. I needed that variable decided to run on 3 other cards in the template though and to get logged into the DB and written into an excel file that I track. The tabbed images were just fluff and puff to me.
I could easily place more important information there if I had needed.
What you are asking though is not out of reach.
Check boxes are similar to radio buttons so I am sure what you are asking can be done. I run check boxes also but that is for a multi selection list I wanted.
I will watch this thread, I have a lot of great resources saved ( at work ) and I have done a lot of different template/file card tab combinations. I use the what is seen by selection ,variable ,user group or by a specific file subject name ALOT.
I have a current project on my list to do for epdm, but If I got a chance I would love to test myself how to control tabs by a drop selection box, that just has to be similar to what Tim said. I do an double drop down list already and its hidden by control logic.
Thank you very much for taking the time to share this with me. It looks like its exactly what I need. I will take a closer look and let you know.
No problem at all, I am happy to help if I can. I can't remember if I got from a resource or adjusted for what I wanted using this resource below.
Principals are the same pushing variables to your needs, or even during state changes setting variables to your needs.
This is a few years old from MJolly-- He trained me as an Epdm Admin back in 2013. I have this and use here and there and I think is nice to know.
