Customize dropdown options


#1

Apologies if this idea already exists but I couldn’t find it. I’d love to be able to customize the options in a dropdown menu so that the display text the user sees and the stored value are different.

I’ve currently implemented a workaround using a very simple jQuery script, but it would be nice to have OOTB for users who do not have javascript enabled.

Currently, you can only build a dropdown that delivers something like this:

Volvo

   



Saab



 



Mercedes



 



  Audi

But I’d like to be able to do something like this:

  Volvo



 



  Saab



 



  Mercedes



 



  Audi

Hi Todd,

I’m afraid this is correct, there is no out of the box functionality for this and it would have to be accomplished using a small piece of scripting. I like your idea though so I’m going to +1 it!

Cheers

Stuart.
