Attribute Input Types
When viewed from the Admin, attributes are the fields that you complete when you create a product. The input type that is assigned to an attribute determines the type of data that can be entered, and the format of the field or input control. From the standpoint of the customer, attributes provide information about the product, and are the options and data entry fields that must be completed to purchase a product.
Date values can be entered by making a selection from a drop-down list, or from a popup calendar. Depending on your system configuration, dates can be typed directly into a field, or selected from the calendar or list. See also: Date & Time Custom Options.
Associates an additional image with a product, such as a product logo, care instructions, or ingredients from a food label. When you add a media image attribute to the attribute set of a product, it becomes an additional image type, along with Base, Small, and Thumbnail. The media image attribute can be excluded from the thumbnail gallery, but can still be used.
