(boolean) If true, the original value is appended to the formatted string (between brackets).

Examples

'format' => 'date'
'format.' => array(
        'strftime' => TRUE,
        'option' => '%x'
)

'eval' => 'double2'
'format' => 'float'
'format.' => array(
        'precision' => 8
)

pass_content

Key

pass_content

Datatype

boolean

Description

If set, then content from the field is directly outputted in the <div> section. Otherwise the content will be passed through htmlspecialchars() and possibly nl2br() if there is configuration for rows.

Be careful to set this flag since it allows HTML from the field to be outputted on the page, thereby creating the possibility of XSS security holes.

rows

Key

rows

Datatype

integer

Description

If this value is greater than 1 the display of the non-editable content will be shown in a <div> area trying to simulate the rows/columns known from a text-type element.

cols

Key

cols

Datatype

integer

Description

See rows and size.

fixedRows

Key

fixedRows

Datatype

boolean

Description

If this is set the <div> element will not automatically try to fit the content length but rather respect the size selected by the value of the rows key.

size

Key

size

Datatype

integer

Description

If rows is less than one, the cols value is used to set the width of the field and if cols is not found, then size is used to set the width.

The measurements corresponds to those of input and text type fields.
