Is it possible to populate drop-down prevalues from an external source in the back end?
I have a Blog entry and want to add an Author Dropdown which should be populated from and external API.
Where would I place this code? Are there any examples out there? I can see how to do this when rendering a frontend page, but not the backend.
Thanks in advance.
To create a custom dropdown with values from an external api, you would need to create a custom property editor.
You can find more information about custom property editors in the umbraco documentation.
you might be able to do this with the contentment package.
it allows you to have a json data source for dropdowns/etc.
Thank you both for your answers. I've used the Contentment package first and that's working fine.
I will have a play with creating custom property editors too.
