Dynamic Multiple Choice in Custom Field

Hey folks,

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?

Thanks

- William

Should I assume this is impossible?

Hi William,

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.

Best wishes,
