Localization display (l10n_display)

l10n_display
Required:false
Type:string (list of keywords)
Scope:Display

Localization display, see l10n_mode.

This option can be used to define the language related field rendering. This has nothing to do with the processing of language overlays and data storage but the display of form fields.

Keywords are:

hideDiff
The differences to the default language field will not be displayed.
defaultAsReadonly
This renders the field as read only field with the content of the default language record. The field will be rendered even if l10n_mode is set to 'exclude'. While exclude defines the field not to be translatable, this option activates the display of the default data.

Examples

Select field with defaultAsReadonly

The following field has the option 'l10n_display' => 'defaultAsReadonly' set:
