I want to make a database with a Sub-Menu-like view. How can I make the following:
Record 1 Name: Vegetables.
This record should have a (+) sign or whatever indicating there are some items or fields "inside" the record Vegetables, for example, Potato, Beans, Lettuce etc.
Record 2 Name: Fruits.
The same as vegetables, but the pop up menu do not have vegetables, but fruit names, for example, Orange, apple etc.

So when I open up the database, that I should name...LIST, I will only see two records: (+) Vegetables and (+) Fruits.
If I click, for example, (+) Vegetables, the pop up will show a list of I want to select Beans, and then show up some information on Beans, for example, Calories, Origen, Types etc.

I just dont find a way to make this view, arrangement of fields...I am completely lost on this. Please help me, and thank you in advance.

Hi there,

Thanks for your question. Our popup field type supports this right in the popup editor. You can create an item to be a sub item of another by pressing the right arrow to make it a child of the item above it in the list. Then you'd see a behavior very similar to what you're describing!
