Pattern 4: Master-Detail Across Two Pages

In this design pattern, one page contains a Search and Results block, and more results (child records) are displayed on the second page. The selected parent data is re-stated on the second page, possibly read-only.

This is almost the default situation, in which the second (related) page is called by using the (default) navigateToRelated() action.

To extend this related page with more parent columns:

1. From the Web Designer catalog, open the related page.
2. In the ParentColumnGroup, insert TextColumnControls from the menu for all parent columns you want to display.
3. For these TextColumnControls, set the Data Source Name and Column properties.
4. Optionally, to make a column read-only, select the Data TextControl in this TextColumnControl, and set the Input Allowed property to: No.
