How to reset some attributes on duplicate of entity

Avatar

Level 2

Hi,

 

In a form how do I handle the first save if some one duplicates the entity?

I have some attributes that needs to be reset when someone copies/deduplicate the entity. Now when I duplicate the entity all attributes is being passed to the new entity.

Hello Emil,

 

You should use the defOnDuplicate="true" or "false" in the schema which holds the entity .

The defOnDuplicate function if set to true , uses the default value of the schema instead of the stored value in the record being duplicated.

 

Examples can be found in the nms:delivery OOB schema like :

<attribute defOnDuplicate="true" desc="Start date if action is deferred or delayed, validity date otherwise."
label="Contact date" name="contactDate" type="datetime"/>
