Many-to-many relationship and matrix table

  • 1.  Many-to-many relationship and matrix table

    I have been playing around with Quick Base for two weeks now and I am facing a problem.
    Basically my question is the same one than Mike here.

    As an example I set up a basic App with three tables: Students, Classes and Class Hours where one Student can have many Class Hours and one Class can have many Class Hours. I would like to be able to edit my Class Hours by filling a form looking like a matrix with the Students on the lines and the Classes on the columns (see picture below).

    I have been able to create this summary report as proposed but it is not directly editable which does not really solve my problem :


    The solution proposed by dandiebolt@gmail.com seems really interesting but is not really detailed and I have trouble figuring how to set it up (I have some knowledge in JavaScript and JQuery and I have already set up the IOL technique for my demo app). 

    I was wondering if somebody could help me, either by showing me another technique that I would have missed or by explaining more in depth how to use "HandsOnTable" within Quick Base.

    Thank you very much!

    I've managed to use the Handsontable library in Quick Base to display a basic array. I am now going to try to link it with actual data in my tables, if someone has advice to give regarding the best way to do this I would be glad to discuss this matter with him.
