APEX Master Detail Detail (MDD)

Currently it’s not straight forward to build a Master -> Detail -> Detail (MDD) screen with Apex.

With the aid of FOEX, it is now very simple to achieve. Here’s how we do it.

  1. Create 3 FOEX grid plugins on the page each with their own child report
  2. Create 2 hidden items
  3. Create 2 dynamic actions
  4. Optionally add cell or row based editing to your reports.

Total time: 15 mins.

Using FOEX you can create AJAX centric solutions as fast as standard APEX components and with a tonne of extra features. and there’s no reason why it couldn’t be an MDDD or and MDDDD report.

Here’s a YouTube video walking you through how you achieve this using just the APEX builder. If you watch carefully you’ll notice that not a single line of javascript is used.
