As shown in the picture below, can anyone point out any documentation / guide that explain the functions & purposes of the below child tables in DocType?
Seems like Actions are a way to inject some existing functionality as a button in that DocType’s view, whereas Links basically adds an option in that DocType’s dashboard.
Have you tried to link a Doctype from a child table?
Could you provide more info? Perhaps you can tell us what you are working on.
Strange that I don’t see these two child tables in v12.9.3 anymore. Are these removed?
I have some custom doctypes as working with frappe:
Warehouse Receipt: in this we need to add one or many packages
So i add a Table Multiselect: Warehouse Receipt Line this child doctype contains a Link to Package named package
So in Package Doctype in the LINKS section i create the following row:
Link DocType: Warehouse Receipt
Link FieldName: package
And in the details of the object i can see the link to a Warehouse Receipt List View successfully, works like a charm!
But what about this:
I have this two more doctypes
Shipment: this need to have one or many Warehouse Receipts
So i create a child table Shipment Line, with a Link to the Warehouse Receipt Doctype
So if I create a Shipment, with all his Warehouse Receipt, and that contains multiple Packages
I want to show on the Package detail view a link to see the shipment, as well as the warehouse Receipt
Apparently that query cannot be done from the “Links Section”
I’ve written documentation about DocType Actions here:
It’s quite extensive so I’ll just link to it here instead of reproducing the whole article.
I hope it is useful.
on what version of 12 can I see the action and Link section on the doctype?
