Quick view control properties

Applies to Dynamics 365 for Customer Engagement apps version 9.x (on-premises)

A quick view control on a model-driven app form displays data from a record that is selected in a lookup on the form. The data displayed in the control is defined using a quick view form. The data displayed is not editable, but when the primary field is included in the quick view form, it becomes a link to open the related record. More information: Create and edit quick view forms
