    'inputType' => 'multiColumnEditor',
    'exclude'   => true,
    'eval'      => [
        'multiColumnEditor' => [
            // set to true if the rows should be sortable (backend only atm)
            'sortable' => true,
            'class' => 'some-class',
            // set to 0 if it should also be possible to have *no* row (default: 1)
            'minRowCount' => 2,
            // set to 0 if an infinite number of rows should be possible (default: 0)
            'maxRowCount' => 5,
            // defaults to false
            'skipCopyValuesOnAdd' => false,
            'editorTemplate' => 'multi_column_editor_backend_default',
            // Optional: add palette and subpalette if you need supalettes support (otherwise all fields will be shows)
            // Legends are supported since verison 2.8
            'palettes'    => [
                '__selector__' => ['field1'],

            ],
            // place your fields here as you would normally in your DCA
            // (sql is not required)
            'fields' => [

Add support for special fields (like fileTrees) in Rocksolid Custom Content Elements (RSCE)

Simply add the following to your project's config.php:

$GLOBALS['MULTI_COLUMN_EDITOR']['rsce_fields'] = array_merge(
    is_array($GLOBALS['MULTI_COLUMN_EDITOR']['rsce_fields']) ? $GLOBALS['MULTI_COLUMN_EDITOR']['rsce_fields'] : [], [
        'tl_content' => ['linkImage']
    ]
);

where this would be your RSCE config:

$element = [
     // ...
    'fields'          => [
        'links'              => [
            'label'     => &$GLOBALS['TL_LANG']['tl_content']['links'],
            'inputType' => 'multiColumnEditor',
            'eval'      => [
                'tl_class'          => 'long clr',
                'multiColumnEditor' => [
                    'minRowCount' => 0,
                    'fields'      => [
                        'linkImage'     => [
                            // ...
                            'inputType'               => 'fileTree',
                        ],
    // ...
