Settings for adding a "lookup", such as an Auto-suggest or Edit-Combo list, to a control.


When you check the checkbox next to the Lookup property, you will notice that two additional properties appear. These are the Lookup Type and Lookup definition properties. Three types of lookups are available: Auto-suggest List, Edit-Combo List, and Grid component.

Lookup Property

When checked, makes the Textbox or Textarea control able to open a secondary lookup Grid and retrieve field values.

Lookup Definition

Lookup definition allows you to define what component and/or fields will be used in you Lookup, what filters will be used, and more.

Lookup Type

Lookup Type has a dropdown select list with these options: Grid Component, Auto-Suggest List, and Edit-Combo List. The Auto-Suggest list option creates Lookups that function much like a Google search toolbar.

The Grid must be updateable before you can add a Lookup to a control. You can set a field to be updateable from the grid Fields page by clicking the (editable?) checkbox above the Selected: fields list.
