Dropdown source


I need to pull a list of names (captions/titles) and related values from an XPath query for a dropdown.  I should be able to specify the caption for the items, and the value stored (number or string type).  The value type selected should match the entity attribute assigned to the dropdown (or vice versa).  This will allow showing, for example, captions “One, Two, Three”, but actually storing 1, 2, or 3.  That is an over simplification, but it gets the idea across.  Pulling dropdown items from another source to populate a data field is a very common operation, and I was shocked it was not supported yet already.  We are in the processes of obtaining a license, and this was a bit of a road block, though yes there are always workarounds that just take a lot longer to do, thanks.
