Hello,

You can try to fill in select list putting the following code in Before Form pieces as explained in this piece of documentation crosstec.org/en/support/online-documenta...ct-list-from-db.html .
$this->execPieceByName('ff_InitLib');
$db = JFactory::getDBO();
$db->setQuery('Select title From #__content Where catid=2 OR catid=3'); 
 
$result = $db->loadColumn(); //load the result from the query
$test = "";
for ($i = 0; $i < count($result); $i++)
{
     $test .= "0;".$result[$i].";".$result[$i]."\n";
}
 
function ff_setSelectList($name, $value)
{
     global $ff_processor;
     for ($r = 0; $r < $ff_processor->rowcount; $r++)
     {
          $row =& $ff_processor->rows[$r];
          if ($row->name==$name)
          $row->data2 = $value;
          unset($row);
     } // for
} // ff_setSelectList
ff_setSelectList('fieldname', $test);
NOTE: Make sure to replace fieldname with the name of the form select list element that you wish to fill in with possible options.

This code will take all articles with "catid" equal to 2 or 3.

Let me know whether this helped to achieve what you want.

Regards,

Mihaela

Hello,
Go to form advanced properties -> more options
Then go to form pieces and paste that in before form :
$this->execPieceByName('ff_InitLib');
$db = JFactory::getDBO();

// Customize this sql request :
$db->setQuery('Select title From #__content Where catid=1 OR catid=2 order by title'); 
 
$result = $db->loadColumn(); //load the result from the query
$selectlistv = "";

// Customize choice text :
$selectlistv .= "0;Choose something ...;choixf\n";
for ($i = 0; $i < count($result); $i++)
{
     $selectlistv .= "0;".$result[$i].";".$result[$i]."\n";
}
function ff_setSelectList($name, $value)
{
     global $ff_processor;
     for ($r = 0; $r < $ff_processor->rowcount; $r++)
     {
          $row =& $ff_processor->rows[$r];
          if ($row->name==$name)
          $row->data2 = $value;
          unset($row);
     } // for
} // ff_setSelectList

// Customize yourfieldname
ff_setSelectList('yourfieldname', $selectlistv);
