How does this affect the child elements (in the database) when you delete a parent element? Do they become "lost" or do they get deleted too?

    Hi @SchautDollar ,

    In that specific example, it only allows the parent to be deleted if it has no children. You could program this differently and allow parental deletion, and then delete all the children.

    Cheers,

    Colin
