The 'url' field type

This lets the user enter URLs. This is displayed as a link.

    type: url
    match-error: Custom error msg.

The specific properties you can use on a url field:

  • width: specifies the visible field width in columns (fixed spaced characters, more or less).
  • default: defines a default value for the field shown on new pages.
  • default-schema: define a default schema for URL ('http://' if not specified).
  • match-error: specifies a custom error message.
  • required: specifies if the field is mandatory [true/false] ('false' if not specified).
