    format_order = Format.find(:all, :select => :format_order, :order => :format_order).collect(&:format_order)
    format_order << format_order.size + 1  # I want only implement when new
    config.columns = :name, :format_order
    config.columns:format_order.form_ui = :select
    config.columns:format_order.options = {
      :options => format_order

You will have to implement a callback:

class Format < ActiveRecord::Base
...
  after_validation(:on => :create) do
    self.code = whatever_code_you_want_to_assign #
  end
...
end
