HOW TO USE

  • Add a Remote Select Box field to your section.
  • Set the data url options with a valid url
    • This url must return an array of JSON objects
    • Those object must have a value and a text member, i.e.
[{"value":"the saved value","text":"the text the user sees"}, {...}]
  • You can use XMLHttpRequest friendly external sources or even a frontend page as your data source.

KNOWN LIMITATIONS

  • When updating an entry, the value will be deleted if it can't find it in the datasource or if the datasource is broken.
  • Only the value is saved, not the text.
  • Only the value is displayed in the table view

If you feel that this is wrong, do no hesitate to fork an improve it!
