Hi Dunno if the right recipient, but.. I'm trying to see if the module is well-suited for my purpose. I have a has-a relationship between two classes. The parent class exports its primary key (integer, auto-increment) to the child class. Both to_cgi and to_field methods correctly create the <select> tag, but the values are integers. Not very descriptive to a potential end-user. Is there any way to instruct the module to populate the dropdown box with more descriptive values from another column (not primary key) in the parent class? disclaimer: perl isn't the language I have work-experience with. If I've overlooked something obvious feel free to point it out, and I'll regret in advance wasting your time. Thanks
