to transfer the value to a page item, which would go into the Shared Id part of the Content Loader, ie
with the overall content loader setup like so:
The latest version of FOEX does no longer allow that. It seems this is due to the introduction of the fxTitle functionality - when we tested the contents of the data
"custom" only showed data when the key was "fxTitle", otherwise "custom" would not be shown at all as part of this.data.menuItem.
What is the correct way to handle this? We can't use fxTitle, as this overrides the triggering element text, which we like as a heading for our new tab. We've also tried group_id as mentioned in the grid documentation; however this also did not show up in this.data.menuItem, nor did it have a difference on being able to hit the correct tab. What's the correct way of dealing with this?
It seems that you have uncovered a problem that the group_id defined in the context menu query is not being used correctly.
The behaviour should be: when using "group_id" in your context menu query you do not need to set the "Share/Reuse Tab/Panel/Slice" and "Shared ID" settings. The tab will be automatically opened in a shared/group tab.
We will be supplying a fix in the next hot fix release due out soon.
Note: with the supplied fix you will also still be able to use your design as above, but it just adds more overhead when you can simply use the menu SQL group_id column to define the groups.
