Field Types / Hidden field

The hidden field offers the possibility to pass a constant value from YAML configuration to Twig template.
This field is invisible in content type editing form. Thereby it can't be edited in backend.
You can change its value at will in content type YAML definition.

Basic Configuration:

            type: hidden  
            default: "foo bar baz"

Example usage in templates:

{{ record.secret }}

Will show :
foo bar baz

Hiding a field, still showing the pre- and postfix

Sometimes you might want to not show a field, but still want to display some information to the editor. For example to give them more detailed instructions on how to use the current ContentType. The type: hidden field is not suited for this, because it hides the entire Field. Instead, use a text field, and hide its input. See an example on the Text Field page.
