I have a table that uses HTML columns extensively. I have buttons to open modals to edit the underlying data. They do take up quite a bit of real estate however. What I would be really slick is to do is have
<a> links that open the modals. This would also duplicate the functionality the users are used to with the old web site Retool is replacing.
Link 1 in red opens a a different app in into a new tab which replaces the View Project button. That works just fine now.
Link 2 would hopefully open a modal which edits the Job. Right now I have the Edit Job button.
Link 3 would open the individual task in a modal, but I have to use the Edit/Add tasks button right now. That column is showing multiple sub records.
So what I am asking for is a way to call a query from an
<a> tag. Would also be useful for inline links in HTML components.
I realize that I could get the effect I am looking for if I re-did this table to use a ListView component and used the Link component. But I would need to nest the ListViews to get the sub records (which actually works) but there are significant performance issues with that method right now.
