Showing relation types in displays (editor summaries) completely buggy?
In our database, entities can have relations e.g. to places, objects and to other entities. In the "Summary" tab of the entity editor we would like to display all these relations along with the respective relation type. But the display of the relation types is extremely erroneous -- sometimes it is correct, sometimes it is wrong (showing a completely different relation type). However, in the editor itself it is always displayed correctly, only in the "Summary" displays we constantly find errors.
We have tried several variants when configuring the display, but can't solve the problem:
- Relations to places don't need any display code since they are displayed automatically as linked place names with the relation type in brackets (which is nevertheless often wrong).
- relations to other entities need a configured display code since they aren't displayed automatically in the correct way. Therefore, we have tried some display code variants, e.g.:
But this always resulted in often wrong relation type displays.
Some weeks ago I already asked here how to show asymmetric relations between entities (e.g. father - son) correctly in displays, since there is always one of the both sides shown wrong:
I didn't get an answer in that thread. But now, as we can see that the problem is far bigger then only concerning asymmetric relations, we really need a solution! Our complete CA is configured to show the summaries as first view when clicking on links to datasets, for the reason that all data is clearly arranged and information retrieval is easy. Is our display code wrong, or is CA here extremely buggy?
