Data Driven Fields?

Data Driven Fields? was created by shandles
Has anyone figured out how to create CBRC2 custom drop down fields that are dynamically populated from a text field?

Basically I want users to either select from what other users have already entered, or create a new entry in the dropdown list.

Anyone with any bright ideas?

Try the extended select plugin, which does exactly that.

It does do as I asked, but it adds a Tab to accomplish this simple task.

Is there a way to accomplish the same functionallity without the Tab?

Also, the conditional plugin adds nice functionality, but likewise adds an unneccessary tab.

Any thoughts?

There is a bug in CB plugin framework which prevents of insertion of content after the tabs have been loaded.

If you want to fix the bug, read this: www.joomlapolis.com/component/option,com_joomlaboard/Itemid,38/func,view/id,1811/catid,10/

And then modify the plugins to do their javacript stuff in function onAfterUserProfileDisplay. Then delete the unnescessary tabs (at the database level)

As soon as CB releases a the fix for this bug, I will modify the plugins to not inlude the extra tab.

Thanks for the pointer, the suggested fix in this link is not valid code. Could you please suggest code that would work?

Thanks,
