How to configure a pre-select options for text fields?

Question asked by Steve Cox on Oct 14, 2014

I'm looking to implement a v7 field similar to the salesforce widget that allows a drop down to be overridden with free-text.

However, the aim of the field is to allow a pre-selected list of standard options to be available for a text field - so it's more of a widget applied 'over' a standard text field, rather than allowing for the creation of rows to the associative array of dropdown option-value pairs.

Also, it's something I'd like to be able to apply to existing fields (eg, Notes subject) without too much difficulty.

An initial approach will be adding a 'propogate from defaults list' dropdown field with logic that sets the subject field to match that of any option selected (other than <none>). But if any of you guys have thoughts on creating a single custom field type, that would be really appreciated?
