    Hi there,

    does SPARK UI tootlkit provide some simply callable function to clone an object and array of objects?

    Why? For example ${Table}.appendElement() and appendElements{} add objects/rows to the table by reference what is not always what we need. We need to add clones to the table.

    Any hints, different approach are welcome.

    One way I know of to do this, is to construct the JSON before appending to the table. For example, if you have a table with columns bound to parameters called, “str1” and “str2”, and the row needs to be populated from two text fields, you could do something like this:

    ${Table1}.appendElement({str1: ${Text1}.getData(), str2: ${Text2}.getData()});

    This is not the most elegant solution, I’m inquiring about something more robust, but wanted to reply to you in the mean time.

    The “best” way for potentially deep clone I have found so far is using JSON.parse(JSON.stringify(x)). It is not perfect from performance perspective but… I definitely need copy the whole object in one shot, not coding assignments at attributes level.

    ${InvolvedDepartmentsTable}.appendElements( JSON.parse(JSON.stringify( ${AddDepartmentsTable}.getSelectedRecords() )) );

    This works for one object and for arrays/lists as well.

    Thanks for that different approach Radek. That is a very clever way to do it when dealing with complex data objects.
