Standard form field types

From Joomla! Documentation

type captcha

The type captcha doesn't provide a list of captcha options available, that is type plugin, folder captcha. The type captcha provides an input for validating. And that applies to the default captcha, others could provide different ways. Should both be described? How to type the plugin folder captcha? Sovainfo (talk) 14:49, 10 September 2013 (CDT)

desired content?

Would like to change the format of these documents. Wonder what kind of information people are looking for. Instead of providing all the options on all documents would like to point to one document with all options in alpha order. Maybe in table format with checks which styles support which option.

I think such a page is coming. One of the GSOC students (Achal) has been working on the form fields generally for Joomla 3 (see Text_form_field_type/3.2) - and that's how his page seems to be shaping up. So I'd hold on this for now until that is complete. However in my opinion we still need a list of all the form fields we have available in the core like we have now (even if we don't keep the subpages). --Wilsonge (talk) 18:17, 16 September 2013 (CDT)
Hope he'll reconsider the layout. I prefer a concise one page above the tabbed window. Considering it is information for developers you might start with the example code! Maybe mention what script implements it. Or even show the script itself. Sovainfo (talk) 15:16, 17 September 2013 (CDT)


Haven't found the combo field type. Can it be removed? Sovainfo (talk) 07:19, 16 September 2013 (CDT)

I don't think the core doesn't use it - you're right - but it still seems to exist in the core code for people to use so we should be documenting it. . --Wilsonge (talk) 18:12, 16 September 2013 (CDT)
ok, will work on it. Sovainfo (talk) 15:16, 17 September 2013 (CDT)
