I wanted to ask, is it possible to remove the drop down functionality of a lookup field?
I want to keep the field as a lookup field as the dependent drop down feature is quite useful in my case but I don't want users to see the other values in the drop down?
The only idea I can think of is to use a Plumsail field and connect this to a Sharepoint lookup field and then set the value in the SharePoint field to whatever value the user has entered in the Plumsail field.
I think it would just add unnecessary clutter to the designer and possibly cause confusion to other developers who might fiddle with my forms.
I did some experimenting and I created a single line text field in SP and put the dependency on the single line text field and it has worked!
