I've run across a lot of posts about adding a custom field to a module, and I think I have things in hand so far.
However, I have not found a way to add a field that gets its values from a lookup list.
We would like to add a "Type" field to the News module that has a list of values like "Working Paper, Critical Conversation, Report, Meeting Notes, ..."
So, we would like the person submitting the News record to be able to select the Type of the record from a DropDownList.
What is the standard way of doing this?
Add a table to the database ("NewsType") and access it?
Access an XML file?
And a second portion to this, is if we want to manage this list of "Types," is there a generic/standard lookup management control or one we can copy from somewhere else to do this?
