How to create a custom attribute that automatically displays a list of all Components in the workspace?

Kristina Florea (3323) | asked Dec 12 '13, 5:10 a.m.
When creating a new work item (any type) I want to be able to choose a component (or more) from a components list.
That means I want to have a custom attribute - Components - that is automatically filled with all the available components in the project area/workspace.

Does RTC provide me this option? If yes, how?

P.S. I do not want an enumeration

 RTC provides a limited set of attribute types.  None of them match what you need. the closest is 'item list', ....

edit: Ralph has great blog on how to do this

and what does 'component' mean? Source code component?

yes, source code component
