I followed these steps to create a lookup field that works well in the Lightning App Preview. However, if I try to add this component to a page, the lookup field is no longer rendered at all.

<aura:attribute name="contact" type="Contact" 
               default="{ 'sobjectType': 'Contact' }" access = "public"/>

<force:inputField aura:id="accountid" 

Any ideas on why this would be happening?

  • please share your code - we can then easily see where the problem is – Itai Shmida Jul 9 '17 at 6:28

Just using this method instead. More work is involved but we get more control over the component in the end.

  • Lightningstrike.io has some good components as well – Eric Jul 10 '17 at 19:15

I would recommend you to use this as an example to create a lookup. I implemented this a few weeks ago and works really good.
