Flipping the unofficial Lookup Component

Updated: Jan 29

The Unofficial Lookup component from the unofficial Salesforce site is one of my favorite components. It allows you to add a powerful search component to your screen flow. However, the component is one of the oldest on the site, and some very picky users in my organization kept asking me, "Why are the icons not aligned correctly?" during user acceptance testing. Therefore, I decided it could use a new layer of paint.


What was changed?

  1. Used lightning design system to format the search box

  2. Used lightning design system to format the search results

  3. Used lightning design system to format the selected results

  4. Added the ability to add icons
