Lookup - add new item

I am trying to achieve the following.

I have a contacts list which has a lookup field called companies which is linked to a companies list.

When a user wants to add a new contact and selects company but the company is not in the list - add a new value without exiting the form.

I am sure this is relatively simply but just can't seem to find an answer

Hello @Lensteruk,

To enable adding new records, please select the lookup field in Plumsail Forms editor and at the right panel go to Settings >> 'Add New' and choose True.


The user will see the button as on the screenshot when will start typing the text in the lookup field.

Is there a way from the control events to distinguish between Add Item and selecting from the drop down?
