    Populate drop down list on document type with result of an api call

    I want to have a drop downlist that is populated from the result of an API call.

    I have got my code calling the api and getting the results inside an everyday MVC controller.

    So I want to move that code to the back office. I'm guessing I will have to write some Angular to call the API and load it in to the drop downlist.

    Pointers, blog posts, ideas please?

    Also this API call, is something that doesn't have to be always up-to-date, as in I could call this API once a week store that data in umbraco somehow and then load the drop downlist from that local store.

    Hi Ayo, for v7, take a look at nuPickers and either the Json DropDown Picker or the DotNet DropDownPicker. There is an updated version for v8, but for v8 check out Umbraco Contentment.

    HTH, Hendy

    How do I use Umbraco Contentment? I can see its a VS solution but how do I get it in to my site, do I have to create a package out of the VS project first?
