  1. This post in the "How-To" Documentation has helped me a ton!
    http://www.gravityhelp.com/documentation/page/Dynamically_Populating_Drop_Down_Fields
    I first want to say thanks for this info!!

    In this example how to it was described how to populate a drop down with the post_title of custom post types dynamically.

    I know have an instance where I would like to dynamically populate a drop down field with the a custom field value of the post rather than the post_title of that post.

    Here is the full code from the "How-To" doc

    Thanks!

  2. Hi Fallingup,

    You can do this by replacing line 20 of the pasted snippet to this:

    [php]
    $choices[] = array('text' => get_post_meta($post->ID, 'meta_key', true), 'value' => get_post_meta($post->ID, 'meta_key', true));

    Replace "meta_key" with the meta key of the custom field you are trying to retrieve.
