I am stuck on this problem, I was making a 'field' to be available on many content types, but this field has itself many fields, so i decided making an entity to have those fields seperate. I choose an entity because i don't these information to be accessible in the searchs etc, and I don't need revisions. Now on the node form submission i would like to have both the fields of the node and the fields of the entity showing up on the same form, as if this entity was a field. How can i do that ?
If I use form_alter: ok i understood how to add widgets to the form, but then that means i have to re-write all the validation code etc from all fields ? Is it possible to load fields so that they will keep all their properties? (validation, submission etc)
Would it be possible to create a field module that would load other fields from a node/entity type on each hook ?
Any other solution ?
Idealy i would to find or make an 'entity-reference' module that does that job! (load field from one in the other when creating, editing, loading a node) !!
any help welcom, thanks !
