I have a field on my form that is a name field that is editable.  It uses the address dialog for choices.  Here is the problem when I get a name from the dialog it displays full - EXAMPLE ->   Jaziar Mindstrom/PGP/State

and that value is displayed.  I want only Jaziar Mindstrom to display.  I am not sure how to do a @Name([CN] on the field being it is ediable and selectable?

DOn't use a names field.  Use a regular text field, and put your own small button next to it, with @PickList.
