  • Hi Prashant,

    Do you mean you want to generate the URL of the look up record and set into text field so that user should be able to open record directly?

    You can achieve it through JS as well.

    - In below url dynamically set the entity type and Id of the record. Construct the URL. You can read the Server URL,Entity type and Id of lookup and construct the URl.

    https://URL/main.aspx?etn=incident&pagetype=entityrecord&id=%7BE08FE768-325F-E311-93F3-00155D10120B%7D.

    - Set the constructed URL into text field.

    If you are using CRm 2013 we have new URl format of String type field available. if you are using CRM 2011 you can dynamically make it hyperlink. refer below link.

    Thanks!
