Deprecation: #69369 - Use property text instead of data in ext:form

See forge#69369


The FORM elements TEXTAREA and OPTION currently use "data" as property name to define default "values" which are used as human readable "labels" inside the specific tag. Furthermore, the TEXTBLOCK element uses the "content" property to define custom text. All other FORM elements use "value". Since "data" implies the possibility to use computed values, this patch deprecates "data" and adds a new property called "text".


Using the property "data" will trigger a deprecation log entry.

Affected Installations

Any TYPO3 installation using TEXTAREA, OPTION and TEXTBLOCK elements which use the property "data".


Remove usage of the "data" property and use "text" instead. Opening a specific form with the form wizard and storing the form again will also migrate from "data" to "text".
