This sample code demonstrates how to create an advanced custom field for Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 and use built-in search dialogs in SharePoint to your advantage. It also shows you how to implement custom field settings.

One of the most popular features in Windows SharePoint Services is the area of extensibility using the list and the concept of a field, or column if you will. Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 includes many built-in field types such as the basic Text Field or the more advanced Lookup Field. In the Windows SharePoint Services framework, you can extend the list of built-in fields with your own customizations. For example, Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 customizes a Windows SharePoint Services field to allow data obtained through the business data catalog to appear as a field in your lists and document libraries. This article describes how you can extend the functionality of Windows SharePoint Services with a custom field type that allows you to look up records in other lists in the site collection with a similar user interface (UI) as found in the business data catalog.

this works as designed - however, I really need the ability to link to the main field - does anyone know how to do this?
