Is there a populate_posts function for categories?

    Currently I have a field in a form that displays a drop-down of post titles from category x, y, and z using the populate_posts function. I would like to do something similar, but with categories. Is there a way to do this? (But not use the category field since that would create a post on my website)

    Thanks

    You would probably need to use the WordPress function - get_categories and create some custom php to do so: http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/get_categories
