create new tag
, view all tags


I have an application that searches for all descendants of a specific topic . (childs, grandchilds, grandgrandchilds, ....)
The result should be displayed as tree
(TreePlugin can do that)

  • the resulting tree should only display topics with field "TopicClassification" = Phase
    i.e. filter out all other Topic-Types
  • every line in the result-tree should display $topic + the content of the form-field "TopicSummary"

all this would be easy if TreePlugin would support the format-Features of SEARCH

  • the filtering could be done with a nested SEARCH or IF-logic
  • the display of field-content could be done with $formfield()

as TreePlugin does not support these features yet :
Is there a solution for my problem or do I have to create a FeatureRequest for TreePlugin ?

ALERT! If you answer a question - or someone answered one of your questions - please remember to edit the page and set the status to answered. The status selector is below the edit box.

You can post a feature request in the TreePluginDev topic. Or, you might be able to do what you need with a SEARCH and some JavaScript as done by PankajPant in DynamicReparenting.
