Hi all,

I have 2 tables T1, T2

T1 is having 2 columns t1_c1, t1_c2
T2 is having 3 columns t2_c1,t2_c2,t2_c3

I need to design a form which should be like

there must be a pop item (Dropdown menu) in a separate block.

If I select 1 from the pop item,
T1 with 2 columns should display in a tabular form.
If I select 2 from the pop item,
T2 with 3 columns should display and T1 with 2 columns should hide.

So the form should be dynamic based on the selected pop item.
Is there any chance to do this?
If so please explain me.

Put each data block onto a separate stacked canvas. Show/hide them depending on a choice you make.

You have two tables. Each of them should be represented by its own data block in a form. As you want to show only one of them, one option is to create two stacked canvases and place these blocks onto them - every block onto its own canvas.

A content canvas (which you must have) would contain a dropdown menu you mentioned. Depending on what you select, show one stacked canvas and hide another.

Or, you could try with tab canvases; that's maybe even simpler.
