1 entity_example.module entity_example_field_extra_fields()

Implements hook_field_extra_fields().

This exposes the "extra fields" (usually properties that can be configured as if they were fields) of the entity as pseudo-fields so that they get handled by the Entity and Field core functionality. Node titles get treated in a similar manner.
