I'm creating a real estate search, and I'm wondering how I might be able to use the Views module to find properties based on their rent per month using a "Min" and "Max" drop downs as opposed to just using text fields.

Essentially, I would like a filter to appear as "Min" drop down box with arbitrary numbers ($100, $200, $300......$10000) and a "Max" drop down with the same values.

Is this possible with any current modules? If not, is it possible through hook_form_alter()? If so, can someone point me in the direction of how to get acquainted with working with forms in greater detail?

  • This fiddle should be of help, it's for selects, but it's easily adaptable to drive a textfield instead: jsfiddle.net/aLyM8/17
