Cascading data

    I am aware that there are several ways people have made data appear to be cascading on layouts, but they either involve plugins or a complex set of scripts, triggers, and/or portals.


    My idea is for a new kind of layout part that would be nested directly underneath the body part, and it would be something that could be revealed or hidden by a script step.  The part would behave like a portal, showing related records that are defined similarly to Portal Setup, so that you could specify which related records should be displayed when the cascading layout part is revealed.


    I think of it as a sub-body part that would resemble portal rows, but without the surrounding portal container.
