Adding a custom Form Type

I'm trying to add a custom form type in the 'add link' page to popup a map like this:

How can I manage to insert a new Form type ?
Or is there another solution?
I've inserted the code in the add template and it works. but not in the admin.

Its pretty easy really. There are loads of posts on it, but here is the general idea;

1) Add a column vis Database > Links (drop down) > Properties (drop down).

Once you click on that you will be given a link at the bottom of the page saying 'Add Column'. Click that and it will let you add a new column to the database.

The rest of it is really superficial (i.e template modifications etc), but like I said, I'm just giving you an idea Wink

Thanks andy, you're really fast.

Did you visit the above link?

Standard Form types only allow
<select name=form_type>
<option value="HIDDEN">HIDDEN</option>
<option value="SELECT">SELECT</option>
<option value="MULTIPLE">MULTI-SELECT</option>
<option value="CHECKBOX">CHECKBOX</option>
<option value="RADIO">RADIO</option>
<option selected value="TEXT">TEXT</option>
<option value="TEXTAREA">TEXTAREA</option>
<option value="FILE">FILE</option>

What I need is a select box with a go button and a custom javascript to drive it.
