OK, that makes sense. Good to know. Thanks.
Glenn, we are doing the same overrides to the SF native header and have the same use case. Did you ever figure this out? I actually was able to pull in the SF CSS and was successful at showing the native search Div/ CSS and button on our pages, but the trick now is the Skuid pages can’t access the native sf js. I used the console to try to identify the native js, but could not pinpoint it. Is there a easier way?
Ok, awesome…my thinking with that setup is you will have a search field that will autocomplete as you type and bring up a list per the SOSL, i.e…“John Doe” will pass any object related that you define in the query?
This could be setup in two ways.
1. The field autocompletes and you click on the result you want, which takes you direct to that record. (Easiest)
2. When you click on the result it redirects to a list view page with multiple model defined tables and then you can choose the record you want. (More involved)
Thanks for the feedback!
Ours is like scenario 1. User clicks into our search box and recent items instantly appear. Then once they type two characters, the autocomplete returns records from the Apex class. Each record is a link to the relevant detail page. Like this:
Your app is beautiful, Glenn! I love to see what you’ve done with Skuid.
Thanks Emily! When we decided that it had to be beautiful we were wondering just how hard that might be to do, but then along came Skuid to make it a whole lot easier. It’s really been great.
Glenn, are you available to hire to implement this polymorphic search feature for our SF implementation? Thanks, Gary
He’s posted in the marketplace section…
Hey Gary … sorry for the slow reply, I didn’t see this earlier. I’ve just dropped you a note on LinkedIn.
I am not seeing this method. Is there something I need to enable. I double checked my version (see screenshot).
Oops, there was a misprint in my original post about the version number — you need to have 6.8.8+, this method is not available in 6.8.7
Thanks. I will update our version and go from there.
