Type: array (columns fields overrides) Scope: Display
Changed or added [‘columns’] field display definitions.
This allows to change the column definition of a field if a record of this type is edited. Currently, it only affects the display of form fields, but not the data handling.
A typical property that can be changed here is
The core uses this property to override for instance the “bodytext” field config of table “tt_content”: If a record of type “text” is edited, it adds “enableRichtext = 1” to trigger an RTE to the default “bodytext” configuration, and if a type “table” is edited, it adds “renderType = textTable” and “wrap = off” to “bodytext”.
The FormEngine basically merges “columnsOverrides” over the default “columns” field after the record type has been determined.
It is not possible to override any properties in “Proc.” scope: The DataHandler does not take “columnsOverrides” into account. Only pure “Display” related properties can be overridden. This especially means that columns config ‘type’ must not be set to a different value.
Example adding “nowrap” to a text type for type “text”:
'types' => [ 'text' => [ 'showitem' => 'hidden, myText', 'columnsOverrides' => [ 'myText' => [ 'config' => [ 'wrap' => 'off', ], ], ], ], ... ],
