filepro_fieldtype — Gets the type of a FilePro field.
integer field_offset: Field
The type of the specified field; FALSE on error
filepro_fieldtype() returns the datatype for the
specified field. Note that the type returned is the
datatype defined by FilePro and has little or no
correlation with the PHP datatypes. If the specified
field doesn't exist, the function returns FALSE
and generates a warning-level error.
Example 294. Show the type of
a given field offset
// Show the name and type for the first field
$offset = 0;
echo 'Field ', filepro_fieldname ($offset), ' is of type: ', filepro_fieldtype ($offset), '.';
