Building a TYPO3 extension in Extbase/Fluid
Configuring the form structure
If your database table has lots of fields it will be good to structure the backend form in which you edit the records.
Display extensive forms as tabs
before the field you want to be the first in a new tab
The first tab (before the first one you add) does not have to be set up and will be called “General” by default.
Display associated fields in a row
If you want certain fields to be displayed in a row rather than below each other separated by a horizontal line, you’ll need to use the so called “palettes”
- edit array
'palettes' => array(
'1' => array('showitem' => 'field_1,field_2','canNotCollapse' => 1),
- in array
'types'add the following code instead of the fields (in this case
field_1,field_2) you want to replace by the palette
the number at the end indicates the key of the palettes array
set the called names for the tabs in localisation file for backend (see chapter Labeling the form fields/Localisation)
