The spacer parameter type provides a visual separator between parameter field elements. It is purely a visual aid and no parameter value is stored.

  • type (mandatory) must be spacer.
  • default (optional) (translatable) is a string which will be used instead of the <hr /> that is inserted by default.


Example XML parameter definition:

<param type="spacer" />

You can replace the basic horizontal line with a title which can be used to group parameters. For example,

<param type="spacer" default="Advanced parameters" />

Note that you can also include HTML markup but it must be encoded. For example, to put the text into bold you can use:

<param type="spacer" default="&lt;b&gt;Advanced parameters&lt;/b&gt;" />

Changes in Joomla! 1.6

Typical hr spacer:

<field name="spacer1" type="spacer"
hr="true"
/>

Typical text spacer:

<field name="spacer" type="spacer" class="text"
label="PLG_TINY_FIELD_NAME_EXTENDED_LABEL"
/>

and add the JText key into the extension ini file.
