Use MenuPick properly

Hi all,

I use menuPick to have a button with a drop down menu. The menu items are
loaded from a database and the users selection needs to be stored back
there too.

the dropdown list looks as following (id, name)
1, full
2, half full
3, empty

I save the users selection in two fields on the card
item 1 in a hidden field ( to be stored in the database record)
item 2 is displayed in another field

obviously, the dropdown list does not look very nice like this. Even more
so when I look at a real-world example with several words for "name"

Can you think of a way to display only the "name" in the dropdown list, but
still save the id in the hidden field?
