[TYPO3] $TCA based labeling for fields with foreign uid's

Hi all,

I am looking for a way to change the label of a record in the list 
module. Usually this of cause works fine in the CTRL-section of your 
table's TCA.

But what if you have records that don't have a real title but just 
consist of uid's of other records?

Is there a way in the TCA configuration to get the title of a foreign 
record's uid?


uid, title, ...

uid, title, ...

uid, dish_uid, dish_cafeteria

I now want the meals records labeled by the title of the related entry 
in tx_dishes.

Something like:

$TCA['tx_meals'] = Array (
	'ctrl' => Array (
		'label' => 'TABLE:tx_dishes:dish_uid:title'

Is there any known way?

Any kind of help or hint is appreciated.

Thanks, regards,
