    Hi everyone, 

    I have a dynamic module and one of its fields is a GUID for a page that I choose with a custom page selector field that I implemented, but as I said this field only saves GUID for the page and I need to display the name of that page in the item list backend view (See attached image), instead of the GUID.

    Is there a way to do this?

    Thanks in Advance.

    Does your custom page selector do things differently than using the out of the box one for dynamic modules? Sorry I guess the out of the box doesn't show the Title/name either, thought it did. In the Settings > Advanced >Content View > Control > {Your Dynamic Module} > Views > {moduleName}BackendList >View Modes > Grid > Columns 

    You can add custom columns there, I have not done it but I think within the template area of a pass the guid back to a service retrieve the name a display it. You'll have to attach a load script I think
