Is there a way to add multiple suffixes for an integer field type? For example, I want to input a value, and I want to be able to specify whether this is in inches or centimeters with a drop down box.

Is there a way to do this using only the field module?

There are 3 options:

  1. Install the Measured Value Field module.
  2. In your custom module implement hook_form_alter and add your dropdown there with markups.
  3. Create actual dropdown and work with just markup.

Create an additional field (apart from the integer field you already have), and make it a select list with possible values "inches" or "centimeters". With that, you don't have to install any other module (only the field module will do).

Optionally, you may want to group them together using the Field collection module (but that requires an extra module of course).
