Can some one suggest that in Standard form field types in joomla 3.5 - there are many options like text, editor, file, media, radio etc

But - i can not get in a star rating option I mean i have a product page and want to display star rating in it

Like <field name="Expert Rating" type="rating" label="Expert Rating" description="View of Expert" hint="pls assign stars to product"/>

Is there a way to select field type as rating and if we select say 2 rating then the front end can load 2 stars against it and say if we load 4 star then front end can load 4 stars in it

Pls advise

There is no standard form field type for star rating. However, you can decorate a standard form field look like star rating.

For example, the below jQuery library can generate star rating using standard HTML textbox field.


You can develop your own custom field if you want pure Joomla form field. See the documentation below.
