Update data with Modal

The Modal widget can be used to view and edit data in a table. By displaying the details of a selected row in the Modal, users can easily make changes to the data. To open or close the Modal widget, you can make use of event listeners.

  1. Fetch data from the sample users database using a SELECT query fetchUserData.

  2. Display the data by binding the query response to the Table Data property of the Table widget tblUserData, as shown below:

  1. Set Table's onRowSelected event to open a Modal widget, you can create a new Modal widget or select an existing one

Modal widget remains hidden on the canvas and becomes visible only when an event is triggered. You can access and edit the Modal widget from the entity explorer.

  1. Next, add JSON form inside the Modal widget, and edit the fields. For instance, if you plan to modify a user's Date of Birth and Email, you can edit the JSON Form widget accordingly.

  2. Create a new updateuserdata query, to update the database:

UPDATE users
SET email = {{}}, dob = {{JSONForm.formData.dob}}
WHERE id = {{}};
  1. Set the JSON form's onSubmit event to run the updateuserdata query, which updates the dob and email fields of a specific user in the users' table based on the provided user ID.

  2. To close the Modal, configure the onSuccess event to include a Close Modal action. This would close the Modal once the updateuserdata query has been successfully executed.
