Populate a section list editor with data from a different section list
Is there a way to populate a section list editor with the content from a different section list editor?
I have a need to create a number of list editors that will use mostly the same list details, but each needs to be able to be separately edited. It would be really nice if I could create a master section editor that would automatically pre-populate each of the other page section editors..
> In this case, if the "master section" is subsequently updated, does it have any effect on the other records?
Yes, functions that are hooked to "record_postsave" will always be called whenever you save a record - adding a new one, or updating an existing record.
In addition to my example code, you should also check if the $tableName is equals to the table name of your master section.
So that your script for updating the records of other sections will only get executed when saving a record in your master section.
