Is it possible to have a user Is it possible to have a custom user field that searches from a databse. Example, create a user field with the name “Country” as the user starts typing the name it searches the country name from a table. This would help in having the same consistent values across different entries.
That is not possible at the current time. You could pre fill the values by hand but not automatically from a database table.
Pity, any plans to make this feature available?
Database backed dropdown is out-of-scope for user fields, however we do support dropdown now!
If you need a fancy custom field that looks up data on a route on the server you will need to build a plugin.
