Overrides the link text and title of the "Create new relation" button with a localised string. Only useful, if the element browser is enabled.

useSortable (boolean)

Activate drag & drop.

showPossibleLocalizationRecords (boolean)

Show unlocalized files which are in the original language, but not yet localized.

showAllLocalizationLink (boolean)

Defines whether to show the "localize all records" link to fetch untranslated records from the original language.

showSynchronizationLink (boolean)

Defines whether to show a "synchronize" link to update to a 1:1 translation with the original language.

enabledControls (array)

Associative array with the keys 'info', 'new', 'dragdrop', 'sort', 'hide', 'delete', 'localize'. If the accordant values are set to a boolean value (true or false), the control is shown or hidden in the header of each record.

headerThumbnail (array)

Defines whether a thumbnail should be rendered in the inline element's header. This is used by the file abstraction layer to render a preview of the related image. Can contain image processing instructions like width and height.

The table column name, which contains the uid of the image reference. Usually this is uid_local.


The width of the thumbnail.


The height of the thumbnail.

fileUploadAllowed (boolean)

Defines whether the button "Select & upload file" should be rendered. This can be used for file fields to directly upload files and create a reference to the file. The button is limited to file fields using File Abstraction Layer. It will only appear to backend users which have write access to the user upload folder. By default this folder is fileadmin/user_upload but it can be changed in User TSconfig using options.defaultUploadFolder. See the TSconfig reference.

The button is shown by default unless this option is set to false.

fileByUrlAllowed (boolean)

Defines whether the button "Add media by URL" should be rendered. This button is used to include media URLs from e.g. Vimeo or YouTube. In addition to this, a valid online media identifier must be listed in the allowed list of elementBrowserAllowed.

elementBrowserEnabled (boolean)

Hides or displays the element browser button in inline records

This property can also be overridden by page TSconfig.
