Display Multiple Fields In A Lookup

Question

Is there a way to display multiple fields in a Lookup?  My DataPage adds records to an Activity Log.  Some activities are related to a record in the Students table, some are not.  I would like to have a Lookup Table for the Student_ID field that displays First_Name and Last_Name from the Students table, but the value for the field is Student_ID. The field can also be left blank.

Found this script worked:

 
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
 
function concatenate()
{
var first_name = document.getElementById("InsertRecordFirst_Name").value;
var last_name = document.getElementById("InsertRecordLast_Name").value;
 
var full_name = first_name + " " + last_name;
 
document.getElementById("InsertRecordFull_Name").value = full_name;
 
}
 
document.getElementById("caspioform").onsubmit=concatenate;
</SCRIPT>

yes, first add a pre-concatenated field to your Students table. Going forward, use hidden fields and javascript to concatenate on submission. Use this as a guide for the needed javascript.

Next, make a dropdown on the Students table, filtered by ID, Display as First Last, Value as ID.

Having trouble with the javascript.  Would you mind reviewing? My target field is named Full_Name. Not sure how to pass parameters.

 

<script>
document.getElementById('Submit').onmouseover = function(){
var first_name =
document.getElementById('cbParamVirtual1').value;
var last_name = 
document.getElementById('cbParamVirtual2').value;
document.getElementById('InsertRecordFull_Name').value = first_name + " " + last_name;
};
</script>
