Hi there, We're looking for a way to dynamically display an entry based on the ID pulled from a lookup field. I've checked out the shortcode to display an entry based on ID: 
[frm-show-entry id=x]

Wondering if it's possible to change the entry ID "x" to a value that is pulled from a text lookup field. Any ideas?

I'm not sure what the context is, however, you might be able to echo/return the results of a do_shortcode call. It would be something like setting up a change event on the lookup and on the change you make an Ajax call to a PHP program passing the lookup ID and in the PHP program you call do_shortcode on frm-show-entry and return the result to the front end. Then again, I could be completely wrong.
