I am new to Tridion and I hope this is a simple question to answer. I am using DD4T in a Visual Studio solution to display the website using content retrieved out of Tridion. Could someone advise what meta-data schemas can be used for? Could I use a meta-data schema to carry across values into the respective DD4T view that maybe not about the content but about the display or are there better ways to achieve something like this?
For example, I create a simple Label schema, in Tridion that contains a text property but I want the content editor to be able to also set the position (i.e. left, right, top, bottom) which is nothing to do with the content of the label? How would I achieve this? What is the best practice of setting display type properties in Tridion?
I hope this makes sense.
