Outputting type data w/ entities
So, I'm trying to get the summary display in Objects Editing to display not only the entity name, but the selection I make regarding the role. I've created a drop-down with different roles (maker, designer, retailer) through the relationshipTable ca_objects_x_entities (using "type code="value") and ideally would want this to display in the summary. I'm working with a modified installation of the KressNGA profile so I can see (I think) where this information should go, in displays / object_summary:
I'm just not sure precisely how to describe / name this information. Is it an attribute? A relationship type? Is this Is it something I can even add?
I'm trying to configure this so entities can be distinguished by role, so that I can connect multiple roles to a single entity. Does that make sense? In essence, I want a single entry for the entity Picasso but the ability to make him designer, maker, or owner depending on the object being cataloged.
As always, any help is much appreciated.
This information is called the "relationship type".
I don't know if it will exactly correspond to what you expect, but here is the way to display entities related to an object, with the type of relationship:
<unit relativeTo="ca_entities">^ca_entities.preferred_labels (^relationship_typename)<br></unit>
Of course you can assign more than one type of relationship between an object and an entity, and that makes sens.
Imagine that Picasso takes a selfi, signed it and send it to you (you'd be lucky!). You could define these types of relationship between this picture and entity "Picasso": "appears in", "is a gift from", "signed by".
so you should have:
Picasso (appears in)
Picasso (is a gift from)
Picasso (signed by)
Darrigan! Hot damn! It works. That's awesome. Thank you. It's absolutely what I wanted in the summary to differentiate roles between different people.
