When this field is excluded from display, it does not render anything as a token.

at line 129 of views_field_view_handler_field_view.inc, remove this piece of code:

<?php
function render($values) {
-    if (!empty(
$this->options['exclude'])) {
-      return
'';
-    }
   
$displayType = $this->view->display_handler->get_style_type();
   
$currentDisplay = $this->view->current_display;
?>

Can I get someone to confirm this is indeed the expected behaviour?

In Views the "exclude" status of a field means that this field is not rendered at the field place, but the value is still available as a token or in the $data: variable.
This allow a custom rendering using the "Global:text" field or custom : field:php code.

Step to reproduce:

  • add a Views PDF views_wiew_field
  • add a global : texte field
  • insert in the texte areal the [include] token
  • Observe that the field is rendered 2 times
  • Make the Views PDF views_wiew_field excluded
  • Observe that nothing is rendered, though the global:text field should have still displayed the field value.

Well need help with the Drupal 6 branch.

For now I don't have any time to start look the code. Can someone submit a path?

I don't know how to create a patch. That is a really simple fix to comply with the expeted behaviour of the "exclude from display" option of a field (if it was what is currently done, one would simply remove the field...)
