I want to convert a TextArea field type to HTML field type as I want to save html tags in the field data.
Can this be done using Studio?
Hi Manjeet Kaur
It is not possible to do using Studio.
You need to create an extended vardefs and modify its field type:
Create the file custom/Extension/modules/<ModuleName>/Ext/Vardefs/<somescript>.php and add the code below into it:
Replace the content between "<>" by the appropriate values.
Go to Admin -> Repair -> Quick Repair and Rebuild.

Just wondering ......
Will it have any impact on the data which was added to field as textarea ?
Or will data be fine after I change field datatype to HTML?
As far as I understand there is no side effect on doing this.
Retrieving data ...
