Select data from list of values in Enum.

It will be nice to have list of values from enum where ever available, so that less typing and clicking is required while adding new records or while updating.
I think this is a basic feature which is right now missing in the "Data" tab, and technically an easy one to add.

Could you clarify it a bit - what do you mean under "enum"?

PS Sorry for late response

No worries, thanks for the reply.

I think I have difficulty understanding the context of the question, but I will try to answer clearly.

By "enum" I meant the ENUMERATION (i.e. the list of allowed values for a column, provided during table creation or edition).
Example: `transaction_type` enum('credit','debit','free') NOT NULL DEFAULT 'debit'

While adding or editing records, currently we have to type values for the enum type columns (transaction_type).
We can simply select values from a menu pre-populated with values from the list of enums.
Some enum values can be really annoying for typing, so its nice to have some kind of assistance.
