Note

Effective November 2020:

  • Common Data Service has been renamed to Microsoft Dataverse. Learn more
  • Some terminology in Microsoft Dataverse has been updated. For example, entity is now table and field is now column. Learn more

This article will be updated soon to reflect the latest terminology.

A quick view control on a model-driven app form displays data from a row 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 column is included in the quick view form, it becomes a link to open the related row. More information: Create and edit quick view forms

Label Required: A label to display for the quick view form.
Display label on the Form Displays the label on the form.
Lookup Column Choose one of the lookup columns included in the form.
Related table This value depends on the Lookup Column you choose. It is usually the primary table for the 1:N table relationship for the lookup.

If the table includes a Potential Customer lookup that can accept either an account or contact, in the Quick View Form column you can choose a quick view form for both account and contact by changing this value and then choosing another quick view form.
Quick View Form If the Related table has any quick view forms you can select them here. Otherwise, select New to create one.

Select Edit to change the selected quick view form.
Additional Properties You can specify the default rendering style by selecting the check box.

Note

When you add a multi-line text column to a quick view form, the form will have a height of one regardless of how the column control height is set. This ensures proper rendering of the form while maintaining density. Notice that multi-line text columns on other form types, such as main forms, work differently as the form automatically expands based on the amount of text.
