We'll use some very basic TypoScript and see how metadata stored in DAM records can be rendered on a page, along with the media objects, or even in them. This is commonly used for inserting accessibility tags (
title) into images.
1. Create a Template on the page.
2. In the
setupfield, add the following, replacing
page.17with a path to the object you want to place the content in, and replacing
1234with the UID for a DAM record, whose caption you would like to display:
page.17 = TEXT page.17.data = DB:tx_dam:1234:caption
3. Save and preview.
Data property is available wherever
stdWrap is applied. So, you can display any of the metadata available in the DAM record, almost anywhere. Furthermore, because
stdWrap properties are recursive, you can apply further processing to the values.
