codeEditor (previously "t3editor")

Changed in version 13.0

In previous TYPO3 versions, the code editor was available via the system extension "t3editor". The functionality was moved into the system extension "backend". The render type t3editor was renamed to codeEditor. A TCA migration from the old value to the new one is in place.

This page describes the text type with the renderType='codeEditor'.

// ...
'type' => 'text',
'renderType' => 'codeEditor',
// ...

The renderType='codeEditor' triggers a code highlighter.

The code editor provides an enhanced textarea for TypoScript input, with not only syntax highlighting, but also autocomplete suggestions. Beyond that the code editor makes it possible to add syntax highlighting to textarea fields for several languages.
