Pass UserID from a Form to an update query in a Master-Detail-Modal Setup


Database: MSSQL

I have a Master-Detail setup, showing user details when a table row is clicked. There is an Edit icon to edit a couple of user details. When the Edit icon is clicked, it opens a Modal, showing current set up with an option to Update User Role and User Status (Active / Inactive). The update Form has been added in the Modal.

I have been able to pass on UserID values from the Master-Detail setup to the Modal setup. However, when I submit the update Form in the Modal, no UserID value is being passed to the Update query and no record is updated in the database.

I have tried with a variable in the App Connect, Set its value with UserID when Edit icon to open the Modal is clicked and added this as a Condition in the Update Query as table.userID = $GET.variable_name, but this approach also is not working. I have just not been able to figure out whether I’m missing something or my method to run an update form via a Modal is wrong.

Any assistance to resolve this would be greatly appreciated.

Screenshots of the Master-Detail and Modal Setup:

Update Form Code in the Modal:

<form is="dmx-serverconnect-form" id="scf_update_a_user"
dmx-generator="bootstrap4" dmx-form-type="horizontal" method="post"
dmx-on:success="browser1.alert('The user record has been updated!')">
  <div class="form-group row">
	  <label for="inp_ur_role" class="col-sm-2 col-form-label col-form-label-sm">Role</label>
	  <div class="col-sm-10">
		<select type="text" id="inp_ur_role" class="form-control form-control-sm" name="ur_role"
            optiontext="uro_role" aria-describedby="inp_ur_role_help" placeholder="Select a new role"
            dmx-bind:options="" readonly="true" optionvalue="uro_role">
  <div class="form-check">
	<input class="form-check-input" type="checkbox" id="inp_ud_status" name="ud_status" value="1"
	<label class="form-check-label" for="inp_ud_status">Status</label>
  <div class="form-group row">
	<div class="col-sm-2">&nbsp;</div>
		<div class="col-sm-10">
			<button type="submit" class="btn btn-primary">Update</button>

send the data inside a hidden input
for example create an input type=“hidden” name=“userid” dmx-bind:value=“datadetail”
and use it as a post variable

Thank you


Hi @t11,

Thank you for your response.

I have got the update working correctly now by adding an input with type=“hidden” name=“userid” dmx-bind.value=“variable.userid” (the value for this variable is set from the Master-Detail row selection userid) in the form and then adding it as a Condition userid equal $POST.userid in the update query.

Thank you again for your help; it’s greatly appreciated :slight_smile:
