Popover on same record (List View)

Hello,

I am using a List View Layout to show me a list of records.

 

I'm trying to create a popover to conserve layout space but still add more details to fields in the SAME record.

These fields are on the same table, but I do not want these additional fields to be on the main Layout.

 

Since I have to select the record to access the PopOver, I keep running into the error:

"This record cannot be modified in this window because it is already being modified in a different window."

 

Do I need to somehow lock the record? (But I still want to work in the same record!)

I've tried a second table occurrence and a _SELF join, but the record is still open and active.

 

A specific case might be: 

A PERSON table with a 3 Column Phone List Layout (FirstName, Lastname, Phone Number)

I'd like to have a PopOver on FirstName, that opens and allows me to see/edit all the address fields, which are in the same table.

I do not want the address information on the main Layout, only in the PopOver.

 

Am I going about this wrong? Any thoughts would be appreciated.

 

Thanks!
