Custom Interface Widgets

Below is a comprehensive list of custom item interface widgets.

Widgets

Widgets are pre-built, self-contained units that serve a specific function in your interface. In many cases, this function is to display a particular group of fields, but widgets can also enable users to activate actions or leave comments using the interface.
