Description

When working with the attribute forms value map or value relation i have found no way to switch between raw field values and displayed values in the attribute table (neither in the project properties nor in the program options). It would be useful to add such a functionality in the attribute table viewer.

In the attribute table are two symbols in the right down corner. Here you can switch between form and raw.
Jpg with form view is attached.

Thank you Gerhard for your reply.
Unfortunately this switch does not change the behavour of the attribute table as expected - nothing changes, the displayed values are also displayed in this view.

the issue is not about the "form view", but about the ability to show the content of the "value" column instead of "display" when using the value map edit widget.

I think, the programmers has done this work good. Edit data in the raw sight of the attribute table is fast and a normaly work. Then it is good, you have the dropdown menue for data input also in this sight.

Using value relation instead od value map can solve your problem.
create a non-geometrietable in your db or as xlsx or csv and load as layer.
Connfigure the behaviour in value relation.
Join the layer (It is a 1:1 relation).
Then you have all fields from both layers available in forms, attribute table and labeling.
Pdf is attached.

I have never denied the good work of the programmers - this is a question of data handling and ergonomy. I think its just a petty when one can't see the raw values in the attribut table. Respectively your answer: This is a workaround for small attribute tables, i am currently working on a project where an attribute table has 25 fields - you would get insane within 2 minutes!
