Forms, Lookups, Dropdownlists

Capture.PNG

 

Hi 

 

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" ?

Tested standard entity, and it works:

Thanks for trying that out. On your custom parent entity for example p1 did you add the field you want to display in the dropdown to the default lookup field group like this? Did you add a text type field or some other type?default_lookup_fg.png

Can you refresh the datasource in PowerApps web player/studio or try a new AFD. This is what I see on the lookup field/relationship for my child entity c1. I am assuming you are trying this in your new environment not the legacy environment.

Glad it worked! Thank you for your patience.

@Vijeta@murali- possible bug.

 

Default value is not working when you change Value1 from PrimaryID. 

See below - as you can see - if I have PrimaryID as value one - default works. If I have PartnerName as Value1, default doesnt work.

Another issue is: even when you have PrimaryID as Value1 - dont change anything and just change the form, you get an error that value is not set. You have to, every time you open the form, open dropdownlist, reselect value, and save. Only then it works.

 

 

@Vijeta - can you help?

Hi arnonel,

Are you seeing this problem when you are trying to edit the record?

Thanks

Hi @Vijeta - yes, the screenshots are from an Edit Form

@Vijeta@murali
