    Selecting a DOM record Link to this post

    I've read through all the posts I can find (including the 50ish-page-long one) and it seems like no-one has thought of my use case scenario.

    I have a fairly basic setup listing profiles of people with various fields that have been filled out. one of those fields is an e-mail address. So what I'd like to do is for someone to go into the CMS and select a record, grab the data from that one record and then press a button to put together an e-mail and send it out like a mail-merge using the data in that record.

    I can't see a way to select a record though? Would it be easier using a complex table field?

    I could be missing something obvious, but any ideas?

    I'm not sure what you mean by "select" a record. If you want do add a some actions to the popup window, you'll have to extend the popup class for either DOM or CTF.

    I don't want to do anything in the popup, I'd like someone to be able to click on a row of the table to highlight it, and then perform some actions using the data in that row - does that make sense?
