I have a CountryDropDownField in a form. However it stores the data as a 2 character country code. Is there anyway to either save the Data as a proper country name or Render it in the Template as such similar to how $Date.Nice outputs a non-numerical Date.

have a look at

and you will find the method countryCode2name ( $code) to convert it to a nice name.

good luck !
