I’m relatively new with Bubble, and I’m not sure if I’m using the correct terms when explaining what I’m trying to solve.
I found this old thread that was really close to a solution, but I didn’t fully understand how to implement it.
I’ve created an illustration that may communicate my situation probably better than I can describe the problem and workflow needs. See image below.
Problem to Solve:
Trying to find a way that allows a list to be dynamic (add and delete records) and then displays the count of records within a dropdown menu. This dropdown menu reflects the Sorting Order for the category list items. The lower the number a category is assigned from the dropdown menu the higher the descending position. Using this dropdown menu, the user can change the category vertical position instantly.
- The categories are being created dynamically by the user already.
- The Categories are within a Repeating Group.
When ONE dropdown changes ALL the other dropdowns will adjust their list accordingly. The dropdown list is based on the number of categories in total at that time (added or deleted) the user has created, so the Sort Order List (represented by the Dropdown Menu) will need be dynamic. N0 more than 8 categories in total will be listed, pending how may the user create (8 is the limit).
IF you see a better way to sort the dynamic choices for the user then previous described or communicated in the illustration while still including the needs I’m trying to describe I’m open to your advice : )
I appreciate any help you can provide. Thanks!
