[TYPO3] [SOLVED]configure BE input form

just, if anybody is interested:

I found a solution myself. I added a filter function to the TCA
configuration of column imageorient, which checks for the Ctype of the
current row.

in ext_tables.php I added:
$TCA['tt_content']['columns']['imageorient']['config']['itemsProcFunc'] =

function myFilterFunction($pars) {
	if ($pars['row']['CType'] == 'myCType') {
		$pars['items'] = <something I need>;
