Sub-config categories / embedded config


Is it possible to embed a tabbed config within a RecordEditForm? I need to have a number of associated configuration items relate to one ‘parent’ config item.

I can see how this is possible if I go down the Wicket route, but I want to check if it is possible before I do that.

I guess it is possible to relate all of the different config items using reference fields, but I want to edit them all on the same page.


Probably not, if the selection is arbitrary at runtime.

Is it possible to save to the Ignition configuration, not using PersistentRecords?

Yes, but you have to create your own Wicket form components and a backend model for the data. See this recent discussion:

I had a brief look at that topic. I will give it a try, thank you.
