display two columns in Manage Plumsail Lookup


Posted by RMIC - Oct 1 ’15 at 09:38


I have in a list a Manage Plumsail Lookup.
How can I view two columns within this Manage Plumsail Lookup Show?
Currently I have under format Item:
function(item) {
return '<span class="csl-option">' + item["{LookupField}"] + '</span>'

I have the article "Setting up the view of results in Cross-Site Lookup Column" (http://formsdesigner.blogspot.de/2013/07/setting-up-view-of-results-in-cross.html) read, but I do not come forward.

I want me display two text columns.

Many thanks!

    To display values of two columns inside the Cross Site lookup dropdown box:

    1. Add the fields to the Request query. Here I'm adding two fields called 'anothercolumn1' and 'anothercolumn2' to my query:

    function (term, page) {
      if (!term || term.length == 0) {
        return "{WebUrl}/_api/web/lists('{ListId}')/items?$select=Id,{LookupField},anothercolumn1,anothercolumn2&$orderby=Created desc&$top=10";
      return "{WebUrl}/_api/web/lists('{ListId}')/items?$select=Id,{LookupField},anothercolumn1,anothercolumn2&$orderby={LookupField}&$filter=startswith({LookupField}, '" + encodeURIComponent(term) + "')&$top=10";

    2. Add the fields to the item format function:

    function(item) {
      return '<span class="csl-option">' + item["{LookupField}"] + '  ' + item['anothercolumn1'] + '  ' + item['anothercolumn2'] + '</span>'

    Note that the names of the fields must be InternalNames, not titles (you can check in Forms Designer the internal name for a field).

    If you want to also display multiple values inside the actual box (not the dropdown list), then you can add a calculated field with a formula like this:

    [anothercolumn1]&" - "&[anothercolumn2]

    and use it as the lookup field.

    If you then want to filter the result set based on multiple fields check the following forum thread, especially starting from message [#7] http://forum.spform.com/forms-designer-for-sharepoint-20/cross-site-lookup-loading-failed-error-34396
