Applicable to Hybrid mode applications

The following table lists the display modes that are supported by each field type. You select a display mode when you add a single-value field to a form. By default, all fields have a display mode set to Optional.

Note: Complex field types, such as field groups and field group lists, are not listed in the table because they do not have an overall display mode.
