1 file.module file_file_formatter_file_field_settings($form, &$form_state, $settings, $formatter_type, $file_type, $view_mode)

Implements hook_file_formatter_FORMATTER_settings().

This function provides a bridge to the field formatter API, so that file field formatters can be reused for displaying the file entity's file pseudo-field.

Defines a "managed_file" Form API field and a "file" field for Field module.
