Hi there. I've got a few creation tools, most of them can be combinated in
multiple ways (A, B, C into A as well as A,B,C into B and C). I'm defining
the child compartments in the case A is included into A, and I've done it
with a normal child compartment like the other widgets' creation tools.

My problem is quite logical: if I want to let the user place B into A,
which is already into another A... I must define another compartment in
the second A, then again make another child, and then another
compartment... I cannot do it indefinitely!

Does it exist a way to make a self-child reference?

Hi Paolo,

instead of creating a normal Child Reference with its own Node Mapping,
set the 'referenced child' attribute of the Child Reference to the
existing Node Mapping of A, B, or C.

Tobias

thanks a lot, this makes sense and it worked in a snap. Can't say why I
was defining specific children features by default, probably got confused
;)
