Referenceselector - Text with placeholders


Instead of a single attribute, it should be possible to select the relation and then use a text with placeholders to be shown in reference selector dropdown.

We quite often need to display more then a single attribute in a reference selector dropdown and this should not require a custom widget.

This is so obvious and year after year I’m building workarounds to solve that :(


Shameless bump..


agree with this!

Also, when having a dateTime attribute, you'd want to be able to select the datetime format.

This would be possible if the default placeholder/parameters menu could be used!
