Agentry - Preload Child Collection Before Add Transaction

I want to preload a child collection before the parent object's add transaction.  I'm using this preloaded child collection to create a checkbox list in a list tile control.  Is there a way to execute a read step before the add transaction?

    There is no way to create a Sub Collection for an object before the object is created.

    What you can do is create a temp collection under the main object and fill in the child collection there.  Then when you create the parent object add the collection into it.

    Christopher,

    I am not following your requirement.  What do you mean by "execute a read step before the add transaction?"  Read steps are executed against the backend database when an object is fetched.  Can you be more specific as to your need?  Thanks.

      I am going to concatenate the values of the selections in a field.  I've figured out that I do not need to preload the child collection as I once thought.  I can load a collection on the main object and display that in a list tile view.  I can then use a single click action to concatenate the values.
