I have a central library \libraries\mylib\ containing some models, tables, helpers and stuff all of my components use.
I also have a folder there containing some custom fields i use.

It is simple to tell Joomla where the fields are when caling it from the library:

FormHelper::addFieldPath(dirname(__FILE__) . '/forms/fields');

But Layouts for standard field types like "radio" are getting searched in the component and template folders and have priority.

How can i tell the system to check first priority for alternative field layouts in this folder:

  • You want core fields to use custom layouts?

  • I want a central library with custom field layouts (for standard and custom fields) to be used by multiple extensions which use those fields.
