Performing a Background Search


     Hi all,

     I was hoping someone would please be able to help me with an issue I'm facing. To put it simply, I'm trying to perform a find request, without actually entering find mode or changing the record. I'm using a portal which has many related fields, and one of them contains a unique user ID from the user table. I want to be able to click this user ID and have a Custom Dialogue Box which says "This user is: Firstname Lastname" (Where Firstname Lastname are obviously the related information).

     Currently, I've only been able to get this to work by allowing it to switch to the record, so it's really only showing information from the current record, which isn't useful. For example:

     If I'm on user 1000, and I look at the portal, the user ID field might be 1234. If I click this field, I want a dialogue box to appear saying "User 1234 is John Smith".

     I thank you in advance for your help.
