An extension that showed custom fields in the edit had already been developed and was readily available on the EE forums. However, I needed to mod this extension a bit to be based on field label instead of field id. Functionally this allowed me to grab custom fields in different custom field sets and display them in the same column. The use case for this was as follows. I had multiple custom field sets, the user was entering the title in German and I wanted to be able to see a title in english. So I added a field to each custom field set with the same label “english_title”. I used that to pull the English title in the edit tab (so if I needed to find something I could, see as I don’t speak German).
To use the extension, install the files in their standard locations, enable and then edit the settings (fill in your field with the appropriate field label).
If you have any problems feel free to leave a comment and I’ll help you when I can.
