Custom Field display descriptions

Greetings,

I’m looking for a quick tweak to the way custom fields are displayed. Right now, we create custom fields with codes, and full descriptions. However, the custom field is showing only the code. Is there a way I can tweak it to show the description, but use the associated code when storing it in the database?

I’m on an old version(3.2.1) and this may already be fixed in a newer version but I didn’t see it in any of the patch notes.

Thanks!
Mike.

I was wondering this myself… on 3.8.7 here… I’d like a way to have a more
"descriptive" explanation on the form, rather than Input must match
^\d{3}-\d{3}-\d{4}$ (not everybody knows that means a ###-###-#### phone
number)On Fri, May 28, 2010 at 9:16 AM, Mike Johnson Mike.Johnson@normed.cawrote:

Hi Chris,

Just try this: (?#phone number)^\d{3}-\d{3}-\d{4}$
