BCS with SPDisplayRelatedInfo?

Nov 16, 2010 at 4:44 PM

I am using SP2010 and have set up an external data source (Microsoft Dynamics GP) with BCS (formerly BDC).  I then created an External Lookup column that points to my External List.  I can't seem to find a way to use SPDisplayRelatedInfo with this column and external list.  When someone chooses a customer account from the picker in this column, I want it to display not only the customer's name, but also the account number and address.  Has anyone gotten SPDisplayRelatedInfo to work with BDC or BCS?

That's certainly not something which I've tested. My guess is that the markup which is rendered is different than standard columns. Also please note the little icons shown in each function's documentation which show whether I've tested that function with SharePoint 2010.
