languageField

languageField
Type:string (field name of type language)
Scope:Proc. / Display

Deprecated since version 11.2: This field can only be used with the type language. All other field types will be automatically migrated on-the-fly possibly losing configurations. See :ref;`Migration to the languge type <columns-languge-migration>`

This property contains the field name which contains a pointer to the language of the record. The field should have the type language.

This TCA type automatically displays all available languages for the current context (the corresponding site configuration) and also automatically adds the special -1 language (meaning all languages) for all record types, except pages.

Backend users can be limited to have edit access for only certain of these languages and if this option is set, edit access for languages will be enforced for this table.

Also see the Frontend Localization Guide for a discussion about the effects of this property (and other TCA properties) on the localization process.
