Pull Lookup Fields into Canvas App

I need to traverse a Lookup field within the entity associated with the embedded canvas app and pull a select number of the Lookup entity's fields into the canvas.

 

For example, Contact is related to a Company, but I need the Company.Name, Company.Address Line 1, Company.State, etc onto the canvas app.  The canvas app itself is showing all the Contacts.First Name, Contacts.LastName already, but I can't get the Company lookup fields.

 

Can this be done within an embedded canvas app for Dynamics 365?

Re: Pull Lookup Fields into Canvas App

Hi @mcutchins ,

 

In which control that you cannot get the lookup field show? If you create an app automatically from an entity that contains a lookup field, it appears as a Drop down control that contains data from the Primary name field of the entity. Please try and see if this helps.

 

If I misunderstood anything, please feel free to correct me.

 

Regards,

Mona

Re: Pull Lookup Fields into Canvas App

I should be more specific, I am trying to accomplish this within a Gallery not a Form.  I need to display a static list but use the data from a Lookup type field to traverse down to that level of data.
