Field Types XML markup is used to define information about a field that is needed to render the field in the UI and in visual designers, regardless of whether the rendering is done by a user control (ASCX), an XSLT template, or a (now Obsolete) RenderPattern. For more information on how the elements are used, see Custom Field Type Definition and FldTypes.xml.
