If you don't want your row data to show up as another plain row in your Table Block, you can always have the row data show as an InfoList Block. Most practical in Detail Views following a record click, the InfoList block is the simplest way to visualize a single record and like all other blocks, can be customized to display your data exactly how you want to.

You may have noticed the function and presentation of an InfoList block is very similar to a Form Block. The key difference between them is with an InfoList block, you cannot create or edit the information on it like you can with a Form.

Row ID

In this field, you will need to tell Frontly which row to display. This is typically done by entering a frontly_id. Most often, this will be done dynamically using Dynamic Variables, for example, when inside a Custom Detail View, using the 'parent' data source like {{ detailview.frontly_id }}.

In rare situations where you are looking to always update the same specific row, you could enter a static value like '12', but this is not generally what you need.

Row Column

Entering a value and pairing it with a column selection will return the first result in your column to your users and its row details to your user.

To hide fields from the Infolist, click the toggle to turn them off.

To re-arrange the order of your fields, just drag and drop in the 'Fields' section in the config panel.

To edit a field's label or field type, click the field to open the editor window.

Layout Position

If you've selected a Layout for your page, you will see the Layout Position select dropdown. This setting determines which 'slot' in your Layout the current Block is located in. As you change the Layout Position, you'll see your block move around into different Layout slots.

Alternatively, you can add a new block to a specific layout slot by clicking on the slot directly.
