Deep Lists Property

By | 23rd April 2015

This assumes that you have already set up an order schema and that you would like to add a deep list property.

The Deep Lists property enables a user to populate a number of fields on an order by selecting a value from a drop down.

The Deep Lists property is built upon the advanced list functionality where you have a list item that has extra properties on it.

This is an example deep list configuration:

Deep List Example

The columns indicate:

key – The data which is downloaded into your LIMS when this item is selected
value – The data which is shown to the user on the New Order page
rel – The relationship column, this value is ignored for deep lists.
filter – If specified, only users with this filter can see the item on the New Order page

Product Name – This will be a field on the New Order Page labelled “Product Name”, when a user selects the key, the value in this column will be filled into the field
Price – This will be a field on the New Order Page labelled “Price”, when a user selects the key, the value in this column will be filled into the field

After selecting the Deep List property type you will be asked to select a list that you would like to bind to the property. Selecting the above list will give you the following options:

Products Example

The checkboxes under the list name are the fields which are visible. Enabling the “Product Name” and “Price” fields will give you a simple deep list which looks up those two values:
