type = ‘none’

Introduction

This type will just show the value of the field in the backend. The field is not editable. Format options can be set to format a given value. The field is often similar to a type = 'input' field having readOnly=true set.

Caution

With type = 'none' the DataHandler cannot process the field since the type is unknown. You may use type = 'input' with readOnly=true instead.

Examples

Simple none field (none_1)

Simple none field

'none_1' => [
    'label' => 'none_1',
    'config' => [
        'type' => 'none',
    ],
],

Properties renderType default

cols

Datatype
integer
Scope
Display
Description

Set the width of the input field. Overrides size.

Value for the width of the <input> field. To set the input field to the full width of the form area, use the value 50. Default is 30.

fieldInformation

Datatype
array
Scope
Display
Description
Show information between an element label and the main element input area. Configuration works identical to the “fieldWizard” property, no default configuration in the core exists (yet). In contrast to “fieldWizard”, HTML returned by fieldInformation is limited, see FormEngine docs for more details.

format

Datatype
string (keyword) + array
Scope
Display
Description

The value of a none-type fields is normally displayed as is. It is however possible to format it using this property. The following keywords are available, some having sub-properties. Sub-properties are called with the format. keyword (note the trailing dot), which in itself is an array.

date

Formats the value of the field as a date. The default formatting uses PHP’s date() function and d-m-Y as a format.

Possible options are:

strftime
(boolean) If true, strftime() is used instead date() for formatting.
option
(string) Format string (i.e. Y-m-d or %x, etc.).
appendAge
(boolean) If true, the age of the value is appended is appended to the formatted output.
datetime
Formats the values using PHP’s date() function and H:i d-m-Y as a format.
time
Formats the values using PHP’s date() function and H:i as a format.
timesec
Formats the values using PHP’s date() function and H:i:s as a format.
year
Formats the values using PHP’s date() function and Y as a format.
int

Formats the values as an integer using PHP’s sprintf() in various bases. The default base is decimal (dec). The base is defined as an option:

base
(string) Defines the base of the value. Possible bases are “dec”, “hex”, “HEX”, “oct” and “bin”.
float

Formats the values as an real number using PHP’s sprintf() and the %f marker. The number of decimals is an option:

precision
(integer) Defines the number of decimals to use (maximum is 10, default is 2).
number

Formats the values as a number using PHP’s sprintf(). The format to use is an option:

option
(string) A format definition according to PHP’s sprintf() function (see the reference).
md5
Returns the md5 hash of the values.
filesize

Formats the values as file size using \TYPO3\CMS\Core\Utility\GeneralUtility::formatSize(). One option exists:

appendByteSize
(boolean) If true, the original value is appended to the formatted string (between brackets).
user
Calls a user-defined function to format the values. The only option is the reference to the function:
userFunc
(string) Reference to the user-defined function. The function receives the field configuration and the field’s value as parameters.
Examples
'aField' => [
    'config' => [
        'type' => 'none',
        'format' => 'date'
        'format.' => [
            'strftime' => TRUE,
            'option' => '%x'
        ],
    ],
],
'aField' => [
    'config' => [
        'type' => 'none',
        'format' => 'float'
        'format.' => [
            'precision' => 8
        ],
    ],
],

pass_content

Datatype
boolean
Scope
Display
Description

If set, then content from the field is directly outputted in the <input> section as value attribute. Otherwise, the content will be passed through htmlspecialchars().

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.

size

Datatype
integer
Scope
Display
Description

The cols value is used to set the width of the field, and if cols is not found, then this value is used.

Value for the width of the <input> field. To set the input field to the full width of the form area, use the value 50. Default is 30.
