How the MIGXdb TV-input-type works
With MIGXdb you can manage records of custom-tables.
The visible records in the grid, can be related to the resource, which you are editing, by default joined with the field 'resource_id' in your custom table.
Each field of your db-record can have a TV-input-type in the editor-window. This is configurable by the MIGX-configurator and/or by config files for more advanced situations.
For each input-field you can use TV-input-types for example:
and most other TV-input-types and also custom-TV-input-types.
MIGXdb does also have a little package-management-tool and you can use MIGXdb to create CMPs to manage custom-tables.
It has a configurable default-grid and some default-processors. Its possible to add context-menues, action-buttons and related functions with clicking some checkboxes. You can also create own context-menues, action-buttons, and functions, which will be reusable for different grids. Of course you can also use your complete own extjs-grid and your own processors.
