I am having problems with an offline lookup.
There are times when our iPads will be offline due to not having wifi signal.
When in offline mode, adding a new item does not appear in a new lookup in another list.
Add location in Locations list.
Inside product list, add product, attempt to set to new location, location not found in new lookup.
The data is saved locally, it should be able to be access in the lookup when offline.
Thank you for reaching out to us.
Unfortunately in order to the lookup field to work the list has to be synchronized first, what happens is that while offline the App is keeping the changes in the draft state and commit them to the server once synchronization is done, only by that stage your lookup field can have access to the updated list data entries.
Is there no way for you guys to implement the lookup including items in the draft state?
This problem effectively renders your app useless in offline mode if a user needs lookups in their list if the lookup is a required column.
So my options are:
1. Add location, find wifi, then add product.
2. Buy a data plan for my device. (Costing my department $7k a year.)
I will check with the Application team and see if we can add this enhancement, will let you know the ETA if possible.
This option won't be supported soon, please feel free to file a new idea request through this link http://ideas.infragistics.com/ so other users also can vote for it and our Application team can add it to the roadmap later on.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
