Field Edit Type - Property Data Type Cross Reference

When the edit type of a field is set to “Default,” the field will take on the behavior of the edit type that matches the data type of the property the field targets. The table provided here contains the cross reference between the field’s edit and the property data type. This will then be the type of field displayed on the detail screen when it targets a property of the type listed and the edit type of the field is set to “Default.” This refers only to the field edit type on wizard detail screens. Object detail screens will always display property values in read-only string fields.
