Using a View to display the elements in the Autocomplete widget


This short guide is a how-to on using a View to display the elements in the Autocomplete widget of the Entity Reference module.

A user wants to show in the Autocomplete widget of an Entityreference field the node ID next to the titles in the dropdown list. The reason behind the idea is to differentiate between multiple nodes with same title.


For Drupal 8

This module allows you to add "conditional-stylesheets" in a much simpler
manner, by adding lines to your theme' file. The syntax for that is:


  • EXPRESSION can be any of the "downlevel-hidden" expressions specified in: About Conditional Comments
  • MEDIA can be any of the normal CSS media keywords

Building a theme with FortyTwo

The FortyTwo theme is designed to be extended by a sub-theme. You shouldn't modify the any of the CSS or PHP files in the fortytwo/ folder; instead create a sub-theme which is located out side of the root fortytwo/ folder.

We tried to make the base theme as clean and simple as possible. It has some styling for basic input fields and buttons.
