Set relationship dropdown via javascript controller

Hi everyone,

 

I'm trying to set a relationship dropdown on the "One" side (One-To-Many relationship) in the create javascript controller.

With relate fields I'm able to simply do this:

this.model.set('account_c', accountName);

this.model.set('account_id_c', accountId);

and the dropdown updates to show the account name.

 

When using a proper relationship however this doesn't work. I can still set account_id_c, which will be saved, but setting account_c or account_name_c does not update the dropdown to reflect the change (keeps saying "Select account"). None of those appear in the model.attributes object anyway.

 

Is there another way to do this? I'm on Sugar 7.8.2.0 btw.

 

Best Regards,

Robin.
