Thanks @jasonh, that’s certainly another interesting way of doing it
So you wouldn’t have the item# saved in your database at this point?
My use case is something like this:
Say you have a map image, you want to drop markers on the map wherever you click, then you want to have these markers numbered so that you can reference them in a table under the map with more information like name/description.
Currently this is all saved in the database as users keep ‘drafts’ they can revisit multiple times for editing until ready to publish.
Would the list of numbers element keep everything numbered the same each page load for referencing purposes?
