Hi There

I am creating a contact form using custom forms module . I have added various fields to the content type.

I would like to know how do I create custom field types that will pull data from either content data or non-content data into a drop down list.

I know I will have to write a custom field module but cannot find any information on how to do this.

A point in the right direction would help greatly.
