It seems like something you can achieve with a SharePoint Designer workflow.

Can you provide more details?

What do you mean with "Sharepoint Designer workflow" ?
I want to create a custom field that i will place it in Document Libraries. This field should show a value on run time without saving the value in a content type base on some search criterias. Basically this field will have to go to Pages Document Library and retrieve back to the field the value of page title.

Thats all for now.

I mean a workflow you can create and customize with SharePoint Designer.

The type of automation you are looking for (fetching a value from another library and assigning it to a custom field) can be easily done with a workflow.  And SharePoint Designer helps you create the workflow without any custom programming.  You can configure a workflow that starts automatically whenever you create a new document.

For more information about SharePoint Designer and its workflows, please see:
