Does anybody know if there is a module to make labels of fields selectable, for instance Field course:

  • Abc in DCT
  • 123 today
  • listening pop

so if I select 123 today, in my content display I would have:

course: 123 today

but I would like to change course: by workshop: at the visualization of the content and have "course" for the other two (Abc in DCT and listening pop). So maybe there is a module that allows label selection, I haven't find it yet.

You'll have to make a custom field formatter with a settings form where you select the label and then output it accordingly.

Like in this tutorial about field formatters

  • Thanks for your answer, but if I do not get wrongly, this offers an alternate label, what I need is a list of lables to choose, and this available at the moment of content cretion, so if the content creator has to add in the courses field a course, he should be able to label it either course or workshop...

  • This is also possible, you'll just have to add the list as a part of the field input. Probably by adding an entire new custom field type. May 23 '15 at 14:18

There are a couple of modules you can try:

Besides these modules, you can do it in code using custom formatters like Suranga said or implementing theme preprocessors.

What you are describing is actually two fields. One is the "label" (a textfield limited to a select number of otpions, or a taxonomy term), the other is the description.

You can do this a bunch of different ways, depending on your needs:

  • Entity References (allows multiple)
  • Field Collections (allows multiple)
  • Field Groups/Fieldsets (only one)

If I understand correctly, you want to be able to click on the description and the label will automatically show up. To do that, I would predefine the labels and descriptions by creating them in a separate entity. Then, you could select these from a list of descriptions by using the Entity Reference module.

  • Thanks for your answer, I started to look for a how to, do you have any link already to a how-to, it is just that I'm not an expert, sorry. May 23 '15 at 8:16
