 Hi Christoph,

 you can try this in the binding, using fb:javacript, for example

 <fb:value id="id" path="id"/>
 <fb:value id="fieldToHaveList" path="fieldToHaveList"/>

 <fb:javascript id="fieldToHaveList" path="fieldOfTheBean" direction="load">
    // the "widget" var is the field reference in id="fieldToHaveList"

    // Obtain the value of the widget what you need for populate the
    // List
    var id = widget.parent.getChild("id").getValue();

    // then you can do what do you need for populate the list
    // sentences write to continue
    typewidget.setSelectionList(  what you need   );

 this work is you write in the flowscript form.load(bean)
