Select the Records to fetch

There are two ways to display a List of Records.

  1. Get all Records from the database and use Advanced Search, if needed, to filter them.
  2. Get the Records referenced from a Relationship and define the parent Record.

Examples for Get All

  • Show all the Posts. You can use Advanced Search to filter only the ones posted in the last 30 days.
  • Show all the Categories of the application.

Examples for Relationship Reference

  • Show the Posts of a specific Category. You have a Category Data Type with an One to Many Relationship to the Post Data Type. You select to display the Category -> Posts and bind the Category to the Category with the Posts.
  • Show the Friends of the Author of a Post. You have a Post Data Type with an One to One Relationship to the User Data Type that is the author of the Post. User Data Type has a Many to Many Relationship to the User Data Type that is the Friends of the User. So, by selecting the Post -> Author -> Friends option and then binding the Post, you can have the Friends of the Author of the Post.
