Remove from DB mode and Data base to remove from

Prepare DataBase API
When dragging an element of repeating group out of its side borders, the element will be removed from database by its ID. In order it to work, you should indicate the database where the element is located to be removed from. It should be the same data base as is used for repeating group data source. After item deletion, an event called "Element deleted" will be triggered.
