fieldTypeReadForm(string $fieldName, string|ModelFieldType $fieldType)

This function is used when you need to change the field type but only for the read/view form. You can choose any field type from the list of field types.

Any of the of the below 2 examples have the exact same results:

$crud->fieldTypeReadForm('date_of_birth', GroceryCrud::FIELD_TYPE_DATE);


$crud->fieldTypeReadForm('date_of_birth', 'date');

You can also use the ModelFieldType object as an input. For example:

// At the beginning of the file
use GroceryCrud\Core\Model\ModelFieldType;
// At your code
$myField = new ModelFieldType();

$crud->fieldTypeReadForm('date_of_birth', $myField);

The default value of the ModelFieldType object is 'varchar' so for example if you have the below line:

$crud->fieldTypeReadForm('date_of_birth', new ModelFieldType());


$myField = new ModelFieldType();
$crud->fieldTypeReadForm('date_of_birth', $myField);

the field type for read form will be varchar
