I have defined my own field widget for node_reference fields. This contains a simple view that lets you select a node to reference. However, if i try to use exposed filters as a part of this widget it will try to submit the whole node form every time i press "Apply". Thus i can't use the exposed filters in views. How can i get around this?

I have ajax activated for the view and have tried different types of displays.

EDIT: Just want to add that i am using Drupal 7 and the latest version of views!

I don't understand exactly whether you're using a form here, but if so, you could give this little module a try, that resolved a similar issue of mine.


creates blocks for node-forms. If you seperate view from the block (e.g. with Panles) this approach could possibly help you too...
