Similar to label_userFunc but allows to return formatted HTML for the label and is used only for the labels of inline (IRRE) records. The referenced user function may receive optional arguments using the formattedLabel_userFunc_options property.


  • Example from table “sys_file_reference”:

    'formattedLabel_userFunc' => TYPO3\CMS\Core\Resource\Service\UserFileInlineLabelService::class . '->getInlineLabel',
    'formattedLabel_userFunc_options' => [
       'sys_file' => [

In this example, getInlineLabel will be called with an array of $parameters which is passed by reference. This array consists of the following keys (and values):

  • table: The table name of the current record
  • row: The database row of the current record
  • isOnSymmetricSide: True if we are looking from the symmetric (“other”) side to the relation
  • options: The options configured in TCA - see formattedLabel_userFunc_options
  • parent: Contains another array with the keys uid (referencing the inline child’s parent uid) and config (referencing the parent configuration)
  • title: Initialized to an empty string, this is the title that is manipulated by the user function

The resulting title must be written to $parameters['title'].
