Populate a NWC Forms single choice Form control with JSON objects from custom API

It would be good if we could automatically populate a single choice Form control (in my case it would be a drop-down list) using JSON objects obtained from a custom API (maybe populate the list by using an on Form load Rule?), and have it submit the supplied 'value' upon submission (in my case it would be a UID relating to records in our bespoke system).

This functionality I am after already exists within the Workflow Designer, via the values defined in the x-ntx-dynamic-values JSON vendor extension, but it does not appear to be possible within the Form Designer.

    Thanks for your suggestion Sam. We are currently looking into our Data Sources feature which allows you to connect to different systems and populate a drop down control.
