Record Selector Field Displaying References Instead of Images


Let’s consider the following two modules:

  • A child module “childModule” that has a field “image” with type = file upload (view mode = gallery of images).

  • A parent module “parentModule” that has a field with type = record selector (module = “childModule” and module field = “image”).

Current Behavior:

In a parentModule record, it’s the reference that shows in imageField (record selector).

Desired Behavior:
The parentModule record will show the image when selected.

It would be very useful to have the option to show either:

  • Value mode (the actuel value of that field, in this case the reference of the fileupload field).
  • View mode (the view that field has in its module, in this case field: gallery of images).

Here is a suggestion for the record selector field configuration:

This would also be applicable for other types: richtext (text input), user selector…

What are your thoughts on this?

Hey, record selectors are not really meant to show the underlying value, they are more for linking two modules. So this most likely won’t change, I suggest a workflow that maps the value if you need something like this.
