In this case, when the user loads up the page, they'll see 'Loading View...' for a second or so, then the view itself will pop onto the page once it's been fetched from the Zoho servers. As I discovered, you can replace 'Loading View...' with anything else and Zoho Creator will display it while the view loads. For an experiment I tried swapping it for one of the loading animations on ajaxload.info, such as:
I thought it might make my project look a bit slicker (which it does), but in fact it also makes the whole page load seem faster in my eyes, just by having a bit of movement and by giving the impression that something is happening somewhere. There's an interesting bit of psychology in there somewhere I'm sure.
Does anyone know if this can be done? Suppose in an HTML view I have a link or a button that says 'execute function x', is there a way to get this to run function x when it is clicked without making it into a link to another HTML page with the function call embedded in it?
Is this possible? I have a custom action button set to appear on each row of a view, and as part of the action I want to be able to take some values from the record in question, as well as a parameter from the URL query string. I know this can be done in HTML views with parameters but is there any way to do this with a standard function script?
Quite new to Zoho so please bear with me, is there a good way to achieve the following?
Suppose I have two databases, database 1 is a list of companies and database 2 is a list of projects. Each record in the project database needs to contain some basic info about the project, and a list containing a selection of companies from database 1, with the potential to create project-specific views and reports using this list of companies.
I would really appreciate any advice as to whether this is possible without having a new database for each project..
