Prefilter is not active in popup/lookup

I’ve created a dynamic model with a prefilter ‘Show_active’. Works fine. 

When in edit mode, and clicking a popup, I see the results - in grid and form. The prefilter is active on the popup. 

When I Save my record (Employee), and reclick the lookup, it’s empty. This is because the prefilter is not active. 

When I toggle it manually, all is ok. 


Empty popup - prefilter inactive.

I do not see a setting for prefilters in the popup. 

Main state: on

Any thoughts how I can change this?

Hi Alexander,

The popup you mention is the Lookup (popup) to the Company table. I'm curious about the reference columns for this User - Company reference, could you share them?

Usually when the lookup popup is empty and does not show a Grid, it can be caused by a 1-to-1 reference.
