Dropdown Lists and radio buttons in CMS

Vote:
 
Hi, I would like to be able to give the CMS user a predefined list of options as a page property, i.e. a dropdown list or a set of radio buttons. I think this would be a good feature to add as a page property type, especially if the contents of the list was content manageable. A bit like the categories section, but much more flexible. Sorry if this has already been suggested. Thanks, Paul

Yeah this can be done quite easily using an xml file as the source and using the custom property plug-in functionality. There is an example of a dropdown custom property in the SDK I think. The main issue I have is that I haven't found a way to make a dropdown list that is generic and reusable across sites as you can't define properties for a property. E.g. be able to define the xml file to load in admin mode, rather than coding it to load a specific xml file. Usually I just end up copying the property for each dropdown list I need in the site.
