When updated using a script, child item fields and related item fields on item details are updated immediately. No full refresh needed anymore. The script can either be an action button script or custom item script that is triggered when an item changes. The script can:
- add/remove/update childen and
- link/unlink related items.
In case a child item is in edit mode and the item is changed in the background due to a field update script, the child item remains in edit mode.
In case a child item is in edit mode and the item is changed in the background due to an action button script, the child item is saved before applying the change.
If an item in an itembox was in edit mode, and was updated after changed field of the parent, it stays in edit mode, but if user cancels the edit, the updated item is shown.
