I want to create a new field type for SharePoint 2013. It should be for the large lookup list, in edit or new form it'll be represented by a combobox with jQuery for selecting choices.

Do you have a sample on how to do this in Visual Studio? Will I be able to customize the list display for the custom field?

I have tried this solution from CodePlex but it is showing following error when I am typing anything in textbox:

  • I think you should avoid custom field type as you can achieve this using JSLink feature available in SharePoint 2013. and if still want to go with farm solution in you can use autocompletelookupsp2013.codeplex.com/releases/view/115667 – Kalpesh Vaghela Aug 14 '15 at 8:30

  • can you deploy it from visual studio and can get exact line where it is throwing exception by debugging the code? – Kalpesh Vaghela Aug 14 '15 at 10:50

  • i did a mistake when creating my column, i linked to id in place of Title. – user1898765 Aug 14 '15 at 12:00

My issue was when i created column. After selecting your list lookup you have to select the field where you want searching. In my case i had a list with an id and title. So i select title like this when you'll start to write something it'll search in this column.
