Dynamic Multiple Choice in Custom Field
A while back, I used this great blog post and related discussions to create and use an image selector as a custom field for the Blog module. I've also seen the same approach to create a document picker.
I have a need to create a simple multiple choice dropdown list as a custom field for my News module. However, the choices won't be static as they are to be created dynamically.
I've done this in a custom module before as well. Just not sure how you'd do it inside one of the pre-built modules like News.
Can you provide any code samples or point me in a direction so that I might achieve this?
Should I assume this is impossible?
You need to add the control you have in one of the existing modules following Slavos' post. Generally your control is a separate widget that generates multiple choice dropdown, so it should not be a problem to do this. Here the important part is how you are going to return the value. I suppose that you will use an array or comma delimited string.
