Creating custom widget

Hi Experts,


I have a custom field of type picklist in User object. I need users to change the value of this field using a custom sidebar widget. The widget just needs to have a picklist custom field with data and a save button which will save the value in the User object.

How can I possibly achieve this functionality. Please suggest.


Thanks & Regards,

Nitesh Saxena

Hi Nitesh,

Through visual force Home page component we can achieve this. 
Query Current user in controller and display the picklist field (whatever the fields you want) on the page. Use a button to save the changes.
