Scout Tutorial
This chapter talks about table fields: tables as part of forms.
This page is an optional addition to the Minicrm Step-by-Step Tutorial and uses it as a starting point.


Contents

What is this chapter about?

We will build a new table page for the Minicrm. It will list visits (or appointments, if you want). We will build a new form to edit visits. This form will contain a table field listing the people participating.

This chapter assumes that you're pretty proficient at creating tables, forms and services. No more hand-holding. :)

Database

The Apache Derby example database already contains the following tables:

VISIT            VISIT_PARTICIPANT 
---------------  -----------------
VISIT_NR         VISIT_NR
EVT_FROM         PERSON_NR
EVT_TO           
RESPONSIBLE_NR   
CONTACT_NR       

If you want to take a look at the database using a command line tool, check this section of the tutorial.

Table Page

Start with VisitTablePage and a few columns: VisitNrColumn, StartColumn, EndColumn and OrganizerColumn.

Result:

(Note: We switched the Swing client to the Rayo Look & Feel.)

Form

Create a VisitForm with a GroupBox (this just looks better). Inside the group box, add two fields: StartField and EndField, both of them dates.

Finally, add a ParticipantTableField. Use Grid H 4. More if you typically have large meetings. :)

Add a NewVisitMenu and a EditVisitMenu to the VisitTablePage.

Don't forget to pass the selected visit to the ModifyHandler in your edit menu:

@Override
protected void execAction() throws ProcessingException {
  VisitForm form = new VisitForm();
  form.setVisitNr(getTable().getVisitNrColumn().getSelectedValue());
  form.startModify();
  form.waitFor();
  if (form.isFormStored()) {
    reloadPage();
  }
}

Result:

Permission denied
If you added Permissions to your Minicrm, you will need to grant yourself the permission to create, read and update visits before you can use the menu!
