ToolTip from different column

Hello ,

I have a sharepoint list named 'Group'.

Within this list there is a column 'Group Number' and corresponding to that there is 'Group Name'.

There is another list 'Payment Request' where selected group is patched.

In my canvas app there is a datacard inside form which contains a ComboBox (dropdownlist). This combobox shows 'Group Number'.

I want to show 'Group Name' in the ToolTip (corresponding to the selected 'Group Name' in that combobox )

You may not be able to add tooltip but what you can do with a combo box is display multiple values. In the display fields in Advanced setting (as shown in your screenshot), you can add multiple values or under Properties, there is an easy way to select multiple display fields.

Let me know if you are able to get this done and if it helps you achieve what you need.

If you like this reply, please give kudos. And if this solves your problem, please accept this reply as the solution. Thanks!

Hi @PowerAddict 

Thanks for your reply.

I cant find this multiple property you mentioned earlier.

By making 'Multiple Selection' true , I can only select many 'Group Number' not 'Group Name' column.

Not the Multiple Selection field. Check the Display Fields property.

Here is some text from Microsoft document:

DisplayFields – List of fields shown for each item returned by the search. Easiest to configure via the Data pane in the Properties option tab.

Here is a link to the document:

Let me know if this helps. I am not in front of my computer so unable to send you a screenshot. I will send it to you as soon as I get in front of a computer.

Hi @mayur2 ,


What is the column type of 'Group Number' and 'Group Name' columns?

Tooltip property is not available for these drop-down options, it can only be seen when you move the mouse cursor to the main body of the combo box.

So, as @PowerAddict said, you can set the Field to be Double layout, and set the secondary text to 'Group Name', then the drop-down options will both show 'Group Number' and 'Group Name'.



@v-siky-msft thanks a lot for the screen shots!

Thanks for your reply.

I've already tried this but the problem is in 'Payment Request' list there is a lookup column 'group'.

This 'group' column is referencing to 'Group' list (which contains Group code(Number) and Group Name(single line)).

ComboBox is binded to 'Group' of 'Payment Request' list.

Hi @mayur2 ,


Aha, that's clear. Please refer to the following steps:

1. bind your combo box to Group list directly instead of using Choices() function,

2. set the DisplayField property of combo box to ["Group Name", "Group code"], and set Field layout to Double,

3. set the Update property of Data card: 

Id: DataCardValue.Selected.ID,
Value: DataCardValue.Selected.'Group code'



Thanks for your reply

I've tried what you suggested but still its not working, Showing Value only.

@mayur2  what is the Items property of combobox ?

If you have set the Items property of combo box to Group, then you can select "Group name" column in the primary text, and select "Group Number" in the secondary text.

could you share more screenshots?
