    Custom options in field editor

    I am sure I missing this somehwere in the documentation, but is there an easy way to add in field options for all fields in contour(Umbraco Forms)?  Example - I would like to add a couple of settings that show up in the field editor for css class and maybe a data attribute value so that every field I add will have the option to fill in those values. I know I'd need to edit the template to plug in those values but where do I plug in the logic to have those options show up? I am running the most current version of Umbraco and Forms

    Hi Myke and welcome to our. :-)

    You have the possibility extend the Umbraco Forms with your own field types. And Umbraco HQ have written some documentation on how you can do it, and how you are adding settings to a type.

    For the extend Umbraco Forms with some new field types take a look at this documentation. For the documentation on how to add settings to a custom field type, see this documentation

    I have not tried to extend Umbraco Forms myself, but hope this information can help you.

    Cool thanks for the info.  I think what I am looking is extending Umbraco forms itself - I don't really need another textfield, texatarea, etc, just need to tack on some settings to the existing fields.  I'll keep digging around.  Thanks for the welcome!
