Description #

To populate dropdown filter with your own custom values use this filter. For example post types, user name.

$data = apply_filters('fluentform_rendering_field_data_select', $data, $form);

Usage #

The following code will add two new options to your drop down field. Here we have used the dropdown input name attribute as ‘dynamic_dropdown’, make sure it matches with your attribute name. This snippet will run for the form id with 91.

For example, we have passed an array of two values, in here you can pass your own data, you can use WP_Query or another way to fetch your data but it needs to match the data format as shown in the example.

add_filter('fluentform_rendering_field_data_select', function ($data, $form) {

    if ($form->id != 91) {
        return $data;

    // check if the name attriibute is 'dynamic_dropdown'
    if (\FluentForm\Framework\Helpers\ArrayHelper::get($data, 'attributes.name') != 'dynamic_dropdown') {
        return $data;
    // We are merging with existing options here
    $data['settings']['advanced_options'] = array_merge($data['settings']['advanced_options'], [
            "label"      => "Dynamic Option 1",
            "value"      => "Dynamic Option 1",
            "calc_value" => ""
            "label"      => "Dynamic Option 2",
            "value"      => "Dynamic Option 2",
