In some dialogs you can click a checkbox to show additional items. For example if you add a field, you can check "show all fields". The dialog then shows a longer list with abstract fields.

There are several places in the GUI where more, mostly more abstract, items can be shown.

What is the conceptual difference between these options. Why are some field not in the first list but only show up in the abstract list.

Do you have to do extra work for these additional "abstract" fields when you want to use them and if yes is there an example what you have to do.

The only reason to have a 'simple' and 'advanced' mode is to provide a short list which matches in 90% of all cases. From the runtime point of view there is absolutely no difference between simple and advanced mode.

The Scout SDK extension point 'org.eclipse.scout.sdk.ui.formField' enables the possibility to extend this short list beside other functionality. Aware implementations of SDK extension points must be deployed to the plugin folder of the Eclipse IDE.

Improved behavior of advanced mode (all fields).
