Button within Repeating Group

Hey guys -

Here’s what I’m looking to do:
I’ve created a repeating group that brings back a list from my database. I’ve added a button to the repeating group. When the button is clicked, I want to display further details about that row in a popup.

Here’s my problem:
Within the popup, in a Text element, “Insert dynamic data”, I’ve selected “Parent group’s…”, and then selected a column from my data. However, when I test the app, nothing is shown. It is completely blank. I definitely have data in that row since the button wouldn’t have been visible.

Any thoughts? Thanks!

Was it also empty in the element inspector when previewing the app?

You should look at the video ‘send data to a group’. In this case, the popup behaves exactly like a group: you send data to it and it then has a parent element’s thing.

Yeah, it seems what you are missing is “Display Data” action in your button workflow. You must send the data you are trying to show in your pop-up.

Thanks so much for the help! I ended up changing the “send data to a group” within the popup - this is what I was missing.

Loving Bubble and the support - thanks again.
