It can often be helpful to end users if fields, particularly complex fields, have information messages either explaining what the data in the field represents, or how a particular input control operates. This option provides the ability to show information text after and below the input control.

This is the compliment of the fields.labelInfo option, which can be used to show information text after and below the field label.

The text shown by this option can be altered using the field().fieldInfo() API methods after the field has been initialised.
