I have a need wherein I need to access values that are in another model (table) from a view which is tied to a different model (table).

For example I have a model called metals.metals and another model called chemical.properties.

Now when a view tied to chemical.properties is loaded based on some condition I need to access value of a field (column) that is in metals.metals as using domain attribute in field.

I have been trying to do this for two days now but without any success.

Please guide me as to how to achieve this.


I forgot to mention that chemical.properties view will opened from metal.metal view and when this view is opened I need to read the currently loaded values in metal.metal view which I think we should be able to read values that are currently load in the view using for example something like this metal.metal.id. But this is not working. :(

Add to chemical.properties related field that point to field from metals.metals. After it you can use new field in XML form.

I think you should define a related field in chemical.properties model to refer to metals.metals field.
