1 file.module file_file_formatter_file_field_view($file, $display, $langcode)

Implements hook_file_formatter_FORMATTER_view().

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.


core/modules/file/file.module, line 641
Defines a "managed_file" Form API field and a "file" field for Field module.
