Re: Best practice add optional="show" when adding fields in tree views

Hi Pedro,

Maybe it is me, but I am missing the point of what you are saying. On 
the one hand you are saying the proposed practice of making extra fields 
in a tree view is not a good practice, but then you say the needed extra 
fields need to be optional="show" or not optional.

In general I think using optional="show" for newly added fields is a 
good practice, unless there are reasons in a feature/module that demand 
the field always visible even in the tree view.

So maybe you can expand a bit of what you where saying, as I am open to 
the arguments.

Kind regards, Ronald
