In the Edit Content Page I try to see in the autocomplete field of type reference not only the title (node reference + ID) but also another field of my chose. Can I do that in Drupal 8 trough a view?

I tried already this with a view and now i can search the right reference but i cant see the other field. I write in the autocomplete field the content of the other field and I can see the right title (ID), but I can't visualize the other field itself.

I want to do this because I have many content with the same name and when I have to choose a reference to the right one I need to distinguish them trough another field directly in the autocomplete.

I already tried what this other answer suggested but without luck: Show node IDs along with titles in Entity reference Autocomplete list And also this one: Node edit form with entity reference - show more than just the title in the autocomplete box

Can be a bug in Drupal 8, or am I missing something?

  • I think autocompletes only operate on the first field in the View - you should be able to rewrite the results for the title field to combine it with the other field via tokens – Clive Jun 8 '16 at 17:07
  • I tried also without autocomplete. I tried with "check boxes/radio buttons" and "select list" trough a view but only the title is displayed. – iianfumenchu Jun 8 '16 at 17:31
  • Autocomplete itself works (trough a view can operate also on another field). But it doesn't show the content of the other field. (it can only search but not visualize) – iianfumenchu Jun 8 '16 at 17:41
