I have a custom a form where the person filling out the form will need to enter the Hiring Managers name. I would like this name to be resolved like the TO button in an Email message. That way the Hiring Manager can be emailed down the road with some auto emailing alert code I have.

Just use the standard To from the Field Choser when designing the form

It is a text box that Currently just holds the Hiring Manager's name. The person filling out the form may or may not be the Hiring Manager so using the From field is not an option. Once the form is filled out an Alert email is sent to the HR department that the Account needs to be Approved. Once they approve the account email alerts are sent out to varous departs that need to do something when there is a new hire.

I would like the name to resolve like the TO box of an email message. That way durring the alert proccess the hiring manager can recieve an email of the status and progress of the new user account.

TO field is made of two items, a button and a text box. Use the text box only. CtrlK in the box will resolve entered text
