Occasionally you will see the option to work with 'Screen' values in Glide. This can sometimes seem very similar to Column Values – but they are different in a couple of respects.
Screen values are useful when working with Forms or Inline Lists. Let's look at two examples.
For our first example, we'll look at using Screen Values to filter a choice component. We're going to use the Property Manager template.
This screen shows a user adding a new inspection. This is a Form screen and therefore lives in a state of limbo – it's not yet a row in your table as it has not been submitted – but it still has values.
In this app, there are many properties (houses) and each property has multiple units (apartments). When we pick a property, we only want to have to choose from a list of units within that property. We don't want to pick from a list of all units from all properties.
