Building on the case outlined in a previous post, I have a page showing details of object/model "A". I want users to see a table below that represents a junction object between object "A" and object "B". The record being linked to in object "B" is the same for all of the records in the table, and I can retrieve It's ID from existing models on the page. Since the object "B" record is implied, I don't want to users to have to select it, but I do need the system to be able to populate that field upon save of a new record in the table.

Seems like I need a snippet for saving that can set this value on any new records then save the model. How would I identify and loop through the new records to set the value?

Hi Peter,

To loop over all records in a model, whether new or not, you need a reference to the model. You do this by using the following code.

var mymodel = skuid.model.getModel('ModelName');

Once you have a reference to the model, you can loop over and update the rows in it with the following code. Since jQuery comes with skuid, we can leverage it.


Once you're done updating the rows, you can save the model.;
