Add/Edit Field Type

CommonSpot offers over 20 field types out of the box for use in Simple Forms and for collecting metadata and Custom Element data. In addition to standard field types, you can register your own custom field types and make them available through the same interface as CommonSpot standard types.

To create a new Field Type click Add New Field Type in the Field Types and Masks dialog.

This dialog organizes field information in the following four tabs.

Dependencies: You can automatically load resources and libraries required by your modules once you register them in CommonSpot. This field displays any registered resources loaded by this module. See Site Administration - Resources and Libraries. If the code requests a resource by its alias, CommonSpot identifies the library that the alias resolves to. If code requests a resource that does not exist or that is not registered, CommonSpot reports an error.
