Last week Hal Gumbert mentioned on Twitter that he was “working on a FileMaker quote to display and edit a BOM ( Build of Materials ) that can go 9 levels deep.”
Probably the most efficient and user friendly way to implement this is using a tree view with collapsible/expandable items. This is nothing new and very nice techniques have been already published by several FileMaker Developers, including SeedCode’s Hierarchy Template.
What captured my eyes (and mind) was Hal’s mention that he was “Planning for infinite…”
This looked like the kind of challenge I like.
