Can it be possible to have more modification possibilities for DropDown fieldgroup on Table, such as:
* Move fields
* Add fields in between existing ones (not just at the end)
* Hide fields
* Let us add fields that are hidden on the lookuppage, as defined in https://www.yammer.com/dynamicsnavdev/threads/392297035218944
* ...

Bump up.


To recap, what users actually want is a 'full' modern customization experience / personalization options of the dropdown list, similar to normal list pages, including (but not limited to):


  • Sizing the columns (increasing width) (+- already possible via the underlying page, but cumbersome)
  • Increasing the size of the full dropdown control, to show / span more columns / rows.
  • Showing / hiding columns (similar to page personalization = without coding)
  • Adding columns (similar to page design = via extension coding, but with better options than just AddLast)
  • Moving around columns / changing column position


The current Dropdown list is just too limited in assisting the user in selecting the correct records, since not all data is properly visualized on the available screen space.

Please check again if an inclusion of this idea is possible for one of the next versions.

I think an example that describes the need for the feature is the following:
A customer lists important details about the "Description" field in the "Description 2" field. He also wants to see the field in the dropdown of the article.
Since the "Description 2" field is directly related to the "Description" field, it would be nice to display the field right after it.

Unfortunately, this is not currently possible. Please program the addafter() in the FieldGroups! Thanks a lot! :)

That's really painful without a possibility to resize columns in dropdown (e.g. for customer with item numbers with 20 characters and also long names)!

In addition to the 'Code' customisation options of a DropDown, end users should get back the flexibility from the previous Windows client to allow 'Personalizing' the dropdown as well, including full resize options on both the column and the dropdown panel itself. Often the dropdown panel is too small to show all important info, or info is shown at the end and should be moved to a more prominent place.

Please provide same personalisation options as for normal (list) pages.

Great idea Frédéric !

Quick mock-up:
DropDownExtension 50000 VendorDropDown extends Vendor
{
modify("Post Code")
{
visible = false;
}
addafter(city)
{
field("Home page")
{ }
}
}

Maybe by introducing a new 'Field Group' object type that is fully decoupled from the related LookupPageId?
