Fields to be displayed (types)

The [‘types’] section plays a crucial role in TCA to specify which fields from the [‘columns’] section are displayed if editing a table row in FormEngine. At least one type has to be configured before any field will show up, the default type is 0.

Multiple types can be configured, which one is selected depends on the value of the field specified in [‘ctrl’][‘type’] property. This approach is similar to what is often done with Single Table Inheritance in Object-orientated programming.
