Lookup Field as Label - disable opening in dialog RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a list with a lookup column that actually links to other items in the same list. It is a related item column. When I add it to my page in Sharepoint Designer as a label everything works as it should. However, I don't want the item to open in a dialog window. I want it to actually link to the page to display the item. Is there anyway to disable opening this item as a dialog window? I have already turned off the option on the list to open forms in dialog. Here is the code generated when I insert the lookup field.

    <asp:Label runat="server" id="ff2{$Pos}" text="{@Related_x0020_Issues}" __designer:bind="{ddwrt:DataBind('u',concat('ff2',$Pos),'Text','','ID',ddwrt:EscapeDelims(string(@ID)),'@Related_x0020_Issues')}" />

  • You can create new text column and set it's value in workflow.

    But it will be not correct if value in related list will change.
