i have a DataObject "Products" that has a has_one relationship to "Manufacturer". When I add a new "Product" via the complextablefield the popup shows a dropdown of manufacturerID. I want the dropdown to show the Manufacturer->name. How can I do this?

As far as I know, the DropdownField constructor takes an associative Array as source list. So you could simply populate the array with ManufacturerID => Manufacturer->Name pairs?

Thanks for the hint banal. This is more complicated than i thought. I have to define a whole fieldset and pass it as a fifth argunemt to the constructor of the complextablefield. As soon as i figured it out ill post my result.
