I am creating a custom module based on Generic Content. With its metadata fields, I want to control what values can be entered by the admin. Let's say my module is for Cars, and I have a metadata field for Make. I want to limit the admin to a list of makes such as Honda, Toyota, Ford, etc. I also need to manage this list, but I don't care if the list is controlled elsewhere, or if it is added "on-the-fly" when the user populates this field. Ideally the admin would select the make from a drop-down list. I see that the Events module has drop-downs for country and state, I'd like something similar.
I'm wondering if there are any examples on how to customize the admin screen in this way.
Sorry, if this question has been asked before. I've already found many posts regarding Generic Content and custom modules, and I'm trying to dig through all info. Thanks!
