Multiple entity types in an ChildEntityManager

Description of the limitation and why it is relevant to address

As a developer I want to list multiple entity types in a childentitymanager so that it saves real estate on the parametrization page.

I think this is relevant for the VIKTOR platform because it creates a better user experience, and provides better oversight.

Submitter proposed design (optional)

Add list of entity types in ChildEntityManager.

Current workarounds

Create multiple ChildEntityManagers in the parametrization.

@mslootweg : do you have a screenshot to visualize the current problem?

We would like to achieve the effect of having one entity manager in the Clearwell section with two possible types of entity to create. And the same in the remaining sections. Additionally, we would need:

  1. so that we can set a default value in the name field for entity when we press the create button
  2. be able to manipulate one boolen or optionfield value from inside entity.
  3. in summary, so that it is possible to assign different values from other fields and not only from the TextField field - currently we select the value in the option field and use the setParamButton button to set the value of the invisible TextField
