With the term "field type" you probably don't find what you are looking for. Better search for "form and render elements". You can find a list of all available elements here:


You can use all elements of the type "FormElement".

  • Thank you :) I'm surprised , I don't see any taxonomy field type Sep 7, 2016 at 11:48
  • That's a real field type (which are used to store data), in D8 that is not a separate field type, but an entity reference field.

  • If you want to store data, generate a custom entity with field types and then use an entity form.
