    Connect to a Webservice when using Forms


    I would like to populate my Drop Down control on the Umbraco Form by using an external webservice.

    Does anyone know what I need to add to the Fields in the Datasource section of the CMS to get this working (/umbraco/#/forms/datasource/edit/-1?create)?

    At the moment Im getting an error when I save it: Datasource failed to save: Data at the root level is invalid. Line 1, position 1.

    And what do I need to return? XML or JSON? At the moment Im returning JSON.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance, Jon

    Umbraco Forms is so poorly supported / documented. I can't figure out how to do this either.

    Me neither. I get a different error which I've just logged as an issue, but the documentation for this is still very poor (over a year later).

    Has anyone got this feature working?
