Populate field based on ajax but don't submit it

Populate field based on ajax but don't submit it

Maybe the title is a little confusing, I am going to try to explain this as clear as possible.

Let's say I have a student table and a payment table.

Student's Table

ID Name
1 Yoko
2 Wasis

Payment Table

ID studentID Payment
10 1 500000
11 1 250000

I hope you get the point.

Here is what I want to do.

In datatable Payment Table, when user click NEW, they can search the student's name (I can do this with select2 plugin). And when the user select the student's name, the field studentID will be populated based on the student's table. And when user submit the form, I don't want to submit the field Student's name.

Here is the form looks like :

Student's Name Yoko (Searched using select2, don't get submitted to the server)
Student's ID 1 (filled automatically based on student's name field)
Payment 5000000 (user put this manually)

I hope it makes sense.

    Yes - student 2 owes a small fortune! ;)

    Is your form using Editor? You an use fields.submit to indicate that a field shouldn't be submitted to the server (the student's name in this case). You might want to make that field a readonly type as well.
