I’m trying to build a small proof of concept using appsmith.
My use case is, to develop a new frontend using existing application’s HTTP APIs to query data and submit changes.
I was able to build a page with all controls, and as a result populate table with requested data. Table is configured for multi-row selection. After user selects rows, he has a buttons below table to change state of those rows (state is kept in one of the table columns). This changes should happen only in the frontend until user click another button which submits all changes to the API - so it is possible to set different states to different rows before submit, using multiple button clicks and different selections.
I have found a workaround to do this using storeValue() - first when API is requested for table data it is stored under some variable. Table is then getting data from store, instead of direct binding to API. And my JS attached to button is modifying data from store and storing it under the same variable after changes.
Is there a simplier way to do this? Or maybe this is the right approach?
thank you for your help!
