On my quest to have a multi-select field of specific workitems to represent our data, I just recently discovered the workitemlist type. which does almost everything we need..

3 things not sure of
  1. ability to filter the list so ONLY one type can get selected
  2. ability to query workitems with a specific workitem in the list (without looking thru a LONG list) 
  3. displaying  the workitems IN the list in a query output. 

the web UI seems to satisfies 2 & 3, while the eclipse doesn't satisfy either 2 or 3 really

is there a way to do 1? or do I have to write an advisor to go thru the list to prevent saving with a wrong workitem type?

| looks like NOT on item 1.  I did develop an enhancement a while back that COULD enable the ability to have the workitem picker only select specific types as part of the custom linktype usability improvements, but that enhancement hasn't gone anywhere
