Repeating Group data not appearing in Float or Popup

Hi. I’ve built a calendar using the tutorial here:

It works really well and I’m happy with it, however I’m having a HELL of a time getting the day data to show up in a float or popup. What I’d like to do is have the user click on a date in the calendar (if an appointment is assigned to that date) and have the details of that appointment show up in either a float or popup. The data I need to send is “date” and the dataset it uses to read the details is called “calendar”. For some reason I CANNOT get the repeating group data to appear in a float or popup. But what drives me even more nuts is that I CAN get the data to appear if I just use a group with show/hide actions.

Does anyone know why I might be having this issue with floating groups and popups? From a hierarchy point of view, the float data source is set to “date” as is the main group inside the float. The repeating group’s data source is set to “calendar”, which is the dataset I created. I’ve tried a million permutations and can’t get this to work. Any ideas?

When you’re displaying the data on the popup, is the original group still visible etc?

When you check the debugger what are the errors?

The original group would be the calendar, so I guess it would be? The debugger shows no errors, it just doesn’t populate with any data. I should maybe be clear that I tried this 3 different ways: once with a group (show/hide actions, this worked), once with popup and once with float. Only the group attempt worked but it’s not quite the effect I’m looking for. I may just go back to the group option.

Thats so interesting, I havent had that issue before.

So long as the group where you’re referencing the data is still on page it should all be accessible.

What method are you using to send it? have you tried setting it as a custom state?

I’m still pretty new to bubble and custom states kind of drive me crazy. I haven’t been able to really wrap my head around custom states yet. I wouldn’t even know where to start with that.

I feel like I’m just missing something small but I’ve honestly spent too much time on it already. I went with the group option with show/hide actions. Works fine lol! Thanks for trying to help me :slight_smile:

Often it’s best to just implement whatever works to get started, then come back and refine later anyway :slightly_smiling_face:
