Lookup in canvas app

Is it possible to use the Lookup function on a text input in a canvas app or can it only be used on a datacard item? 

I'm trying to display a customer name from a lookup table based on the customer # key in my main table.  It just displays and repeats  the first field value with this code:

LookUp('[sip].[v_CustomerLookup]',customer_bk = customer_bk, customer)

 

Thanks!

Yes you can certainly do this in the Default property of the TextInput control.

Your formula for the LookUp is not specifying a proper criteria for finding your record though.

You have customer_bk = customer_bk - This will always be true and you will only get the very first record.  You need to specify the filter criteria for the lookup.

 

I hope this is helpful for you.
