DAL Entity & DNLookup

Dear all,

When displaying a user in the User Application, I would like to display
the name of the line manager but as a string not as an hyperlink.
So I have configured the manager attribute of the User entity like
- Data Type: *DN*
- Format Type: *<None>*
- Control Type: *DNLookup*
- DNLookup Display:
- Lookup Entity: *User*
- Lookup Attributes: *Given Name + Surname*
- DNLookup Detail:
- Detail Entity: *<None>*

However, when I display a user, I still have a link instead of just a
I tried with -Data Type- set to *String* but had the same result.
Do you know if it is possible and if yes how to do it ?

Thank you in advance!
