Editor instance's provide an API which is suitable for controlling the form as a whole, and many field based control functions, but for fine grained control over individual fields, you will want to use the field's own API.

Each field in an Editor form is an instance of the DataTables.Editor.Field type, and provides its own API. See the fields() API methods for detailed information about the methods provided by each field instance. Furthermore, you should also be aware that each field type has the ability to extend the methods provided beyond just the common set. See the documentation for each field type for details on its extension methods.
