Custom select list field values to act like a label when displayed.

I have a custom field created as Label type.  I then add a new field as a Select List (single choice) type to replace the label as I wanted more control over the content.  Now I'm missing some of the functionality of the label, specifically when it is being displayed, I can click on it and it brings up all the issues associate to that label.  I would like that same functionality when displaying the value of the select list.  Is this possible?

Jesse, I'm afraid it's not possible with standard jira, you can achieve this with some plugins

Thanks Gaston.  Is there one or two plugins you would suggest?

You can try with an script custom field of Adaptavist Script Runner, it requires a little of code.

Or you can give a try to a Calculated Text Field using Misc Custom Fields

Cool, I am already using Script Runner for its JQL functions, but haven't had the imagination to apply it to this case.  I'm capable of searching and reading docs if I have some idea to chase.  But of course, examples (Code to steal :-) ) are always best.
