Provide a JSON source for select field

Provide a JSON source for select field

Hello,
how can I provide a dynamic JSON source for a select field? I see the ipOpts object structure where I can statically define the options, however these options can change as they relate to another dataset. i.e: I enter a new mobile phone, and when I enter a new customer, I want to see that newly entered phone in the dropdown as a choice to assign to the new customer.

Maybe I am missing something in the documentation.

Our backend is PHP and we must use the existing classes for classic CRUD operation.
Any help is appreciated!

S.G.

    You can use the `update` method for the field. For example:

    [code]
    editor.field('dept.id').update( json.dept );
    [/code]

    This example shows how that can work in action:
