I think the method depends on what you are trying to achieve by doing this.

Hope this helps, without your intended use-case in your question it is difficult to provide a meaningful answer.


Panels 7x 3.9 got built in support for field collection items, guess it was a later addition, available now as form and node elemens.

it's not obvious at first, since the collections are listed with "field:..." same as normal fields.

saw it due to the habbit of "prefixing" all field collection items with fc_ (field_fc_name) makes 'em stand out a bit more.

Hope it helps, good luck to all ;)
