Button to display portal row details?

Question asked by ezeitgeist on Mar 2, 2017

Trying to do something simpler than a Virtual List (which is a little over my head at present) or using the modular MasterDetail, is there a way to click on a portal row and have the information displayed?


Table 1: User table

Table 2: Contacts table


In a User table layout I have a portal showing Contacts table names list (filtered via a search field).


I want the user to be able to click on a portal row and the Contact's additional info pops up. I think the trick is a button over the row with a Get ( ActivePortalRow ) but I'm not sure what to do with it.


Can I put the direct Contact table fields on the layout and somehow link a $ContactSelect variable with the Contact_ID? Should I setup globals for the info and then somehow pull the info in when the button is clicked?


Any guidance would be appreciated.
