Drupal 7 Views Module Tutorial 8 of 10 - Views Custom Field Handlers
In the 8th video of this 10 part Drupal video tutorial series, we continue looking at the Views API and create a custom field handler. This tutorial starts off by looking at the views_handler_field_node that we used in Tutorial 7 and I walk you through what handlers are and how the node specific handler was created.
From there, we create our own handler by extending the views_handler_field. We override a couple functions from the parent class to provide an option for a user to render the word BLANK instead of actual output.
