      Hi Alexander,

      I have been asked if we can provide a hyperlink back to the Display Form of the list item when using either SPJS-Lookup or Cascading dropdowns?

      Exactly like a default SharePoint Lookup column, The link would be shown in the Parent DispForm.aspx and the ListView.

      This is currently not supported. The reason is mainly that both casc and lookup merge duplicate entries and therefor cannot give you a link to one specific item. I might be able to add support for writing the ID of the selected item to a separate field and use this to construct a link in DispForm, but currently your best option would be to use code in DispForm to build a query based on your selections and get the item directly from the lookup list based on that query.

      I can help you with a code snippet if you tell me some more details about your field names and the configuration for the lookup or casc.
