Wondering if its possible to have autocomplete values linked to its display form or a modal window? I am trying to see if I can mimic the out of the box lookup field type functionality. I cant use that field type because the source list exists in a different subsite.
This is unfortunately not possible unless you pull the values from the ID column in the “setFields” configuration of your autocomplete and use some custom js in your DispForm to construct a link using the display value and the id.
Thank you for your reply. I did try to use the setFields functionality of autocomplete configuration. However, it seemed like setFields is not allowed for autocomplete field that accepts multiple values. It does give an error saying not available. Are you aware of this?
Yes, this is by design because using “setFields” when using multichoice would most likely mess up the field you are trying to set when concatenating all the values from all the selected options and using that to set the field value.
