    Hi Alexander,
    I replaced many of the native SP lookup fields with SPJS-AC and SPJS-Lookup controls for various reasons, However I would like to restore the “hyperlink” functionality that you lose on the list view.
    For example…
    1) “List A” has an SPJS-AC column to lookup CustomerName from CustomerAccount list
    2) I also set the CustomerAccountID (SPID Field from CustomerAccount list) using the “Set Fields” function of SPJS-AC (So i have the item id of the item I would to open)
    3) From “List A” list view, I would like to be able to Click on CustomerName and open a Modal popup Display form for that customer (SP.UI.ModalDialog.showModalDialog(options)), just as you would get if you use native SP Lookup column.

    Any thoughts?

    The best I can think of is that you write the URL to a Hyperlink field. You can do it like this in the Custom JS by specifying a parseFunction in your spjs.ac.textField function call:

        "helpText":"Start typing to search...",
    function writeHyperlink(a){
        return [_spPageContextInfo.webAbsoluteUrl + "/Lists/ProjectList/DispForm.aspx?ID=" + a[0], a[1]];

    Change the list name to match yours in the URL.

    Unfortunately you cannot have it open in a new window / tab, and not in a dialog box either because the built in Hyperlink field doesn’t support that.
