I have created custom content type having below fields

Title, Description, Small Image, Large Image and Category

I am using Views module to display that content (only small image) in Grid format with 4 columns. Issue is that i don't find any option (Settings of my view) to display only custom field at front end. The only thing i can see is title is being displayed in grid format.

Does that mean Views module does not show custom fields created for a custom type content at front end?


Never mind guys. I got solution. Once you go to your view (created using views module) edit page then at the bottom of the page there is a section called Content having options to add custom fields in view.

Views has the option of adding a custom field.
You need to search for global custom text field in the views
You can add a global custom text field as custom text field and alter the value using hook_views_pre_render(&$view)

function YOUR_THEME_views_pre_render(&$view) {

  switch ($view->name) {
    case 'YOUR_VIEW_NAME':
      //  override the global custom text field value
      $view->field['nothing']->options['alter']['text'] = 'My custom text';

Click on the add as shown in the Imageenter image description here

Then search for Global custom text field as shown in the Imageenter image description here

You will see global custom text field which is custom text for views and you can alter it using above code or u can alter by entering html text into configure option for the field as shown in the image below :enter image description here

Not recommended but still as an option, you can use views_php module it allows to add custom php fields in views, and if you just need custom text as custom field then @user13198 has already described it well enough.
