It can sometimes be useful to have a field on screen which is for information purposes only, providing context for the end user in the form or just simply to split the form up (the built in
readonly and the plug-in
display field types are common examples of where this is useful). On those cases you might not wish to have the data submitted to the server from these fields (it is optional, as sometimes it can be useful!).
field.submit option can be used to control if a field's value should be submitted to the server or not. By default it will be, but seeing this option to
false will stop the field being submitted.
