Type:array
Scope:Display
InternalType:all

Options for refining the appearance of group-type fields. This property is automatically used for FAL relations created by the function ExtensionManagementUtility::getFileFieldTCAConfig.

elementBrowserType (string)
Allows to set an alternative element browser type (db or file) that would otherwise be rendered based on the internal_type setting. This is used internally for FAL file fields, where internal_type is db but the element browser should be the file element browser anyway.
elementBrowserAllowed (string)
Makes it possible to set an alternative element browser allowed string that would otherwise be taken from the allowed setting of this field. This is used internally for FAL file fields, where this is used to supply the comma list of allowed file types. This also affects whether the “Add media by URL” button is shown if online media file extensions (e.g. youtube or vimeo) are included.
