Why won't the lookup results show?

I don't see my Category lookup field within the results.

  • Change url as below: url: _spPageContextInfo.webAbsoluteUrl + "/_api/web/lists/getbytitle('Footer')/RootFolder/Files?select=Title,CategoryId,Category/Title,Category/Order&$expand=Category/Title,Category/Order&$orderBy=Title", – Gautam Sheth Oct 7 '16 at 12:40
  • I've tried that. That does not work. – Christopher Oct 7 '16 at 13:34
  • Have you tried looking in that ListItemAllFields property? – Dylan Cristy Oct 11 '16 at 20:51
  • @DylanCristy Only the CategoryId is within the 'ListItemAllFields' property. I can't seem to access that either. – Christopher Oct 12 '16 at 12:24
  • You may need to explicitly get the list item that is associated with each file in order to access that other metadata. I know that in Powershell or the server object model, if you get an SPFile object, to get at the metadata of the site columns in the doc lib you have to get it like this: SPFile.Item["Field Name"], not SPFile["Field Name"], so there is a subtle difference between a "file" object and it's corresponding list item. – Dylan Cristy Oct 12 '16 at 12:44

Thank you @DylanCristy for the push in the right direction. I was missing the '$' before select in the query.

url: _spPageContextInfo.webAbsoluteUrl + "/_api/web/lists/getbytitle('Footer')/items?$select=Title,Category/Title,Category/Order,Category/Column,File/Name,File/ServerRelativeUrl,ContentType/Name$expand=Category/Title,Category/Order,Category/Column,File,ContentType/Name"&$orderby=Category/Column,Category/Order",
