I know no way of fetching default values from some other records. But could
simply set the 'default' value in TCA. You could do this in


By adding a line like:


Another way would be to set TSconfig like:

TCEFORM.tx_yourtable.tx_yourfield.config.default = Your Default Value

But for this to work you would have to add the entry "default" to the
"allowOverrideMatrix" array in t3lib/class.t3lib_tceforms.php, so you
modify the core of TYPO3:

$this->allowOverrideMatrix = array(
  'input' => array('size', 'max'),
  'text' => array('cols', 'rows', 'wrap'),
  'check' => array('cols', 'showIfRTE'),

So the line 'input' should look like:

  'input' => array('size', 'max', 'default'),

Which will allow you to set the above TSConfig line (TCEFORM.tx_yourtable...)
