Forms, Lookups, Dropdownlists





See above. 

I have a form. Form has a dropdown list due to field being a lookup to "Client" Entity (Client Entity has 2 fields: ClientID, and ClientName. ClientID is the "Title" field)


The displaytext is the ID - how can I change the dropdownlist display text to be "ClientName", instead of the current "ClientID" ?


@rgruian - can we get an update please?


Update please?

@rgruian - What is going on - can I get an update please? Its been over 3 weeks since the last update, and months since I raised this critical issue. 



Apologies for the inconvenience. Adding @Vijeta explicitly to provide an update.




Hello Arnonel,


We have added support for showing two fields in the lookup dropdown. Suppose you have an entity called parent and an entity called child with relationship to parent. Please add the field you want to show up in the dropdown to the default lookup field group on parent entity. It should be a text field. Then you can do an app from data on child entity and you should see two fields in the dropdown. Please make sure that the lookup control has display fields property set to 2.







It still doesnt work.

I have tested on about 30 different lookups. About 29 dont work, but strangely, 1 does work. 



Can you please try this for standard entities for example product lookup of Sales Order Line on the edit screen?

Do you see a dropdown like this? Are you facing problem with custom or standard entities?



Custom entities - dont use standard. 


As mentioned above, 1 of them works, but many MANY more dont.
