Creating custom fields

Brightspot renders the standard field types in the content edit form as described in Field types. You can customize a field's rendering using a servlet, and annotating the field with the path to the servlet.

import com.psddev.cms.db.Content;
import com.psddev.cms.db.ToolUi;

public class Video extends Content {

    private String videoPreview;


In the previous snippet—

  • Line 7 is a String field.

  • Line 6 replaces Brightspot's default rendering of String fields with the output from the servlet at /custom/videoPreview.jsp.
