Planning to show a custom multi-select lookup. Use the Xrm.Utility.lookupObjects to show a multi-select lookup control in Dynamics 365

Debajit's Dynamic CRM Blog

Recently in my project I had the requirement to show up a multiselect lookup for selecting records across multiple custom entities. The customer have created a PCF control where they have designed to show the selected records spanning entities. But the issue was to show a lookup control to allow the user to select multiple records spanning entities.

Thankfully there is a method now to do exactly the same using Client API.

The below code shows how to show up a multiselect lookup control from account and contact entity. However you can do the same for all custom entities.

Below is how it looks.


Hope this helps!
