Redundant date in fr:metadata node of fr-form-instance

Łukasz Pytlarz
Hi,

I use action (HTTP Service) with set control choices as a service responce action

I have few dropdown menu inside section which could be repeated several hundred times.

My problem concerns fr:medadata, which I understand is important for fields associated with the checkbox controls, but on the other hand contains a lot of unnecessary data.

Is there any other way to store this data? Autocomplete field have its own label attr what is good enough and could be a solution also in this case.

Thanks in advance.

Łukasz

Hi Łukasz,

Are you saying that you're seeing that the list of choices is stored for
each "instance" of your dropdown in the repeat, which seems redundant, and
you'd prefer for it to be stored only once for all the "instances" of the
"save" dropdown? Or am I misunderstanding your question?

Hi Alex, 

I think rather about store all choices instead of only one which I need to proper display value in control. 

There is few hundred such controls in form and for each control is store list of choices counting several dozen. This seems to me unrelevantly redundant. 

After reload this form I need for each control only one label/value pair.

I need to add that architecture of my solution requires reload most lists when I try to change my choice. This is multi-level selector with address data (region/subregion/community/city/street) for the list of participants. 

Maybe this would work better with other architecture but API which I consume it assumes such use. 

Some solution is to use autocomplete controls but it is pretty much change in user expirience. 

Now in instance is much more metadata than data itself.

Łukasz, I'm sorry but I am still not sure to understand what you'd like to
do. Could you give an example (maybe shortened / summarized), of what is
being stored now vs. what you'd like to store?

Hi Łukasz, have you solved the issue you were having with the redundant
information in the `fr:metadata`? If not, could you give me more detailed
information, per my previous message?

Hi Alex, 

I promise I give you some example of what I meant. 

This was about to have a control over saving select1s' dictionary within instance. 

I would like to have possibility for dropdown control to store label for value with reflabel attr. This is similar to how autocompletem control works right now. This label attr for node allow us cleanning metamata in instance on save.

Hi Łukasz,

Are you saying that you would like the dropdown to, in addition to the
value, also save the label of the selected item in the data?

Łukasz Pytlarz
Yes. That could be enough. I mean, when I have also label not only value I could clear meta data from instance.

Hi Łukasz,

Could you extract the label or the current value from the "full" metadata,
store it somewhere on the element say adding an attribute `label="…"` on the
relevant element, and then clear the metadata, if you don't need the whole
thing?

And I imagine that this would happen in the service you implement, which is
called by the `send()` action.
