|0011385||mantisbt||custom fields||public||2010-01-12 08:38||2012-09-02 10:22|
|Target Version||1.3.x||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0011385: Put custom fields on top of the report page (before category)|
|Description||We needed to insert custom fields on top of the report page instead of putting after the built-in fields of mantis.|
|Additional Information||The attached patch shows custom fields with a negative sequence number on top of the report. Custom fields with a sequence >=0 are shown as usual.|

|I fixed some minor mistakes in my patch.|
This patch is now maintained on mantisforge:
I added a related patch:
Autofocus the first element in the form instead of category_id. Handlers of EVENT_REPORT_BUG_FORM_TOP may have added elements before the category!
Just a general comment that i too didn't like the placement of the custom fields after the built in fields and would like a more robust way to dictate where in the page to display the custom fields. Where as am-gtz placed his custom field above category, i've placed mine above the reporter field.
This flexibility change would probably require all fields to be assigned a sequence number so that users could specify exactly where to display the custom fields. It may be easier to think of it in terms of group of fields instead of individual fields in terms of ordering. For instance being able to the custom field in front of Id, Reporter, summary, or attached files would be significantly easier to code and still provide a great deal of customizability.
As squarebox mentioned, it would be much more flexible to be able to place custom fields at each position.
We need to place some custom fields on top, and some on the bottom --- so it is not sufficient to just specify the pos. of all custom fields as a whole.
|AFAIK Paul (grangeway on this bug tracker) is currently reimplementing columns_api/etc so that you can select and reorder fields on the view/update/report/etc pages in the same way you can select and reorder columns on view_all_bug_page. This would provide all the flexibility requested by squarebox in a more standardised way than the patch attached to this bug report uses.|

would like to add 1 more request if possible, the ability to display the custom fields horizontally as well as vertically. There may be the need by some people who may want to have it displayed vertically on the edit screen and horizontally in the display screen, albeit weird from an HCI perspective.
i.e. horizontally like ID, Project, Category
Vertically being fields that consume a whole row like reporter and assigned to
this is of some use when you have small custom fields that display nicely horizontally.
I've attached a screenshot of the customization i did to display custom fields in my environment.
Yes ... I agree. In general I would suggest to make those forms not so <table> dependent and try to go for <div>s to allow a better floating and customization.
@dhx: Did you see any mantis issue concerning grangeway's developments? Is he reading this one?

this is probably relate if not a duplicate of bug 0006220, albeit a bug that's 5 years old...
as well as encompasses bug 0006785
and should probably be added to bug 0004227
just mentioning these cause they haven't been touched in ages and might be a good oppurtunity to close out alot of similiar outstanding bugs and such.
