I have been trying to figure out how to update multiple table in Jifty
from one page. I have tried the MyWebLog tutorial example that provides
a couple of data entry fields for a blog entry. I have not yet been
able to find in the documentation how to do the following:
Provide a screen with radio button questions that can take the input
from the form and write the ID, Question and Answer to consecutive
entries in one table. I also want to be able to read an existing table
containing "index" numbers and write to the next available record,
without any user input.
I can read the "index" table and generate the next available number, but
I could not find how to configure a "hidden" action that does not
require user input.
An example of how to write to an object directly without using a form
would be helpful.
Also, an example of using Radio Button actions based to write to the DB
object would also help.
I can write the form in strainght HTML and leave all database
interaction to the "Action" called upon submit, but this would require
using all hidden inputs in a separate action module.
It looks like doing this properly in Jifty would allow all form input
and Action/DB interaction on one page.
Any examples would be appreciated.
