Uri.newRecord ViewHelper <be:uri.newRecord>

Use this ViewHelper to provide 'create new record' links. The ViewHelper will pass the command to FormEngine.

The table argument is mandatory, it decides what record is to be created.

The pid argument will put the new record on this page, if 0 given it will be placed to the root page.

The uid argument accepts only negative values. If this is given, the new record will be placed (by sorting field) behind the record with the uid. It will end up on the same pid as this given record, so the pid must not be given explicitly by pid argument.

An exception will be thrown, if both uid and pid are given. An exception will be thrown, if the uid argument is not a negative integer.

To edit records, use the <be:uri.editRecord>.
