I have a webform in D7 where I want the user to select a value from a dropdown list. These values I want to be dynamically updated from a view. How can I do this?

I found the webform viewreference module, but it's D6. There is a d7 port that someone made using coder, but, like author notes, I get an error when I try to view the form with the view reference webform component.

Are there any solutions out there?

Take a look at the sandbox project Webform Views Select.

This module will let you populate a webform select component with data from a view.


You need to write your own module with a .js file. You have to make a rfi form for that and through you js file take the values.

Suppose on your site you have to select a country and based on that country different values like course, SiteID,AccountID and campaignID need to be selected.

In .js file you have to do:

(function ($) {
  Drupal.behaviors.highwire_article_nav = {
    attach: function (context, settings) {
      var campus_settings = $.parseJSON(Drupal.settings.settings_campus.campus_data);
      $('select#edit-submitted-occupation').append($('<option>', {
        value: '- Select -',
        text : '- Select -'
          var campus = $(this).val().toLowerCase();
          var campus_config = campus_settings[campus];
          var campus_courses = campus_config.courses
          $('[name="submitted[siteid]"]').attr('value', campus_config.siteID);
          $('[name="submitted[campaignid]"]').attr('value', campus_config.campaignID);
          $('[name="submitted[accountid]"]').attr('value', campus_config.accountID);
          $.each(campus_courses, function(index) {
            $('select#edit-submitted-occupation').append($('<option>', {
            value: campus_courses[index],
            text : campus_courses[index]

In the rfi form give the values like :

{"country_name":{"course_name":{"0":"Course_name_1","1":"Course_name_2"},"campaignID":"value_of_campaign_ID" , "siteID":"value_of_site_ID" ,"accountID":"value_of_account_ID"}} and so on.

EVA might work for that, however I haven't used it in this scenario.
