Adding a generated page into an existing page

Adding a generated page into an existing page

I have many existing web pages and want to use Data Assist to generate the CRUD pages (create, read, update, delete). Is it possible to create the pages with Data Assist, and then copy and paste the entire page into an existing page without some glitch? I know theoretically you should be able to copy/paste all of the Server Behaviors from the Server Behavior Panel to another page but wanted to check. Or is there a way to have Data Assist generate a page within an existing page (I pretty sure you can't).

Unfortunately, you will not be able to use DataAssist to create the pages into an existing page. There shouldn't be any issue with copying the functionality over if the pages are in the same level on the site directory. Make sure that the server behaviors are copied over to the top of the page and all the forms and layout are copied over correctly as well.

Hi Jimmy and thanks for the fast reply. I tried coping over a results page and embedding into an existing page and it worked out, including all of the links to the update, delete, etc. I highlighted everything in the design view and pasted it into the existing page, then went back and copied the recordset from the server behavior panel. None of the other server behaviors allowed copying. Does this sound like the best approach? It would be a nice enhancement to allow embedding into existing pages.

To request this as a feature, if you could post in the wishlist forum explaining what you would like, that would be great.
