Editable List


Displays an editable list of string key/value pairs in a table format or dropdown menu. Pair it with other components such as Data Filter or Visual Query Builder to easily manipulate those components' JSON string states.

Set up

  1. Define the data source used to store the key/value pairs in the editable list. An update query must be used on a keyed table.

  2. Set the Selected Key to a view state to map the currently selected key from the editable list.

  3. Set the Selected Value to a string view state to map the currently selected string value from the editable list.



A name for the component provided by the user.
Data Source

This must be set to an update query on a keyed table, used for storing the editable list of key/value pairs.


Update query:


/this sample requires keyed table:
/ table's key matches 'Key' in this dialog
/exampleQueries:: `id xkey ([] id:`int$();name:`symbol$();note1:`symbol$());
/ `exampleQueries upsert(0i;`dummy;`);

    if[count[dgUpd]>0;`screenerFilters upsert flip dgUpd];
        delete from `screenerFilters where id in (dgDel[`id])];

    /generate unique ids for new items
    if[count[dgAdd]>0;`screenerFilters upsert flip dgAdd];

For building a custom layout of an Editable list



Users can optionally validate new entries to be added to the editable list. Validation requires the Show New property in Basics to be enabled.


New Key
A view state parameter which holds the new key entered by the user.
Validation Analytic

This property identifies a query, analytic or virtual data source that will validate the new key provided by the user. The analytic should accept the New Key view state parameter as input and return an empty string or a string containing an error message for the user. Returning an empty string indicates that the New Key is valid and can be added to the editable list. If the new key is not accepted the error message will be presented to the user in an error dialog.
