Custom forms that pull from remote datasource


Level 9


I'm sure this is a bit of a long shot but here goes.

I would love the ability to create my own custom form controls that I could tie to some sort of remote datasource. Imagine being able to build a form field that runs a lookup from a remote server to select from a list of values. This would have to have the ability to at least pass out the task object code and ID number to the remote data source as well.

Building on this:

As a Requestor using a Custom Form, I'd like to:

  • select field values from a list that is populated from external data sources, so I am picking from the most up-to-date values.
  • select a value for Field1 that dynamically narrows my available choices for Field 2, so I can enter form information quickly.
  • type ahead in a field and narrow down the list of remaining available values, so I can find my value quickly.
