Has anyone ever asked for a product attribute of hidden type?
I have found myself creating a textbox product attribute, and then hiding it via css or some other method in my projects over and over again. But if it was really that simple, i would not be asking for this feature....
It is easy to hide them with css on the product details page, but what about on checkout views, and in message templates, and anywhere else they can show up as well (Order history)...
So what I am thinking is a new type of product attribute for hidden fields.
By default it would present itself as a hidden field on the product details page.
But it would be a text box or label on any admin view or email.
But on any customer / public view or email it would not be visible.
I am currently using it primarily when crating custom product details screens. I need to store more information than I really need to have the end user know about, but it is great to have the individual per order item data for these values.
I currently implement this code in my own plugins for the sites I am working on, but I feel this could be so much easier.
Would anyone else have a use for this type of control?
