if you are using a PostGIS db you can try my plugin DataDrivenInputMask

- works if default is defined on the field in the db

- if the values are derived from a second table with a fk constraint the 
comboBox is "searchable", i.e. editable and positioned at the top of the 
matching choices as you type

if a not null constraint is defined on a field, changes cannot be 
submitted if the field is still empty; null fields are indicated
