Gadget field definition: Dropdown of filter favorites

Hello to all,

I'm very new in jira plugin development. I try to write a gadget to display a summary of original estimate, remaining estimate and time spent over the issues of a favorite filter. Current I've written the field definition of a field to configure, wheter all issues shold by displayed, or only mine. This was easy, because I can use a field of type boolean:

type: "select",
						        selected: gadget.getPref("show_only_mine"),

So next step is, to display a dropdown to choose a favorite filter. I have an old version of the plugin here (can't be used anymore, because it is based on portlets). The old version used following in the atlassian-plugin.xml:

				<values class="com.atlassian.jira.portal.SearchRequestValuesGenerator" />

Is there a way to write a field definition in my gadget.xml to reach the same?

That was my reading the last 5 days, but as a complete rookie it's difficult to find the one paragraph in the documentation, which can help, in thousands af documentation pages. But i continue having a look in it.

you can refer source code, if you have licence then you would have got jira source code also right
