I have been working with the Hierarchy to manage a little project that I m trying to achieve. A quick basic overview of my data, A Customer, Multiple Quote, Mulitple Types within Quote, Mulitple Lines within Types. Now this is where the Hierarchy comes into it's own, and bar the Calendar, is to me possible the best thing since sliced bread
But, as with developing any system for some-one, they always want more
Basically the request that has been put forward is that they want the user to be able 'edit' multiple lines within a type via tick boxes. So, lets say there are 20 lines within a type and they are all, 'Blue'. Of these 20, we want to change 10 to 'Red'. They tick the boxes next to the 10 they want to change, fill in the appropiate data entry box with Red, and click submit, and this will change the 10 to be Red.
Now I can make this happen within a standard list type layout, but it would mean that I would have to have the only the desired type showing all of its Children, Tick box to have a Boolean entry, and then use a script to replace content within foundset of Boolean changed items, but then this would take the user away from the hierarchy and screen they should be on.
My question is; before I invest too must time trying to accomplish something they may not be possible to intergrate with the Hierarchy in its existing form;
Has anybody else attempted this and got it to work? if so, some pointers would be greatly appreciated.
PS, this is to only work at Level4 in the data, no higher.

No that I'm aware of. The table in the portal is just for display, or what we call a virtual list. You could conceivably add check boxes to the virtual list, and then use their row number to determine what entities have been checked, i.e. row number will correspond to the value in the arrays, but you would need to actually do the actions with some kind of offscreen processing, then come back and clear the checkboxes in the portal.
We do have a new Hierarchy on the way soon, but it doesn't address this since we're still displaying in a virtual list, so the same solution would apply there...temp check boxes in the display portal.
Hope that helps!
