Error sources and issues when writing Custom Field Types

These are issues and problems I've run into when writing my custom field types:

  1. 'Field type is not installed properly' error. When writing Custom Field Types it is important that the TypeName field in the fldtypes_xxx.xml file corresponds with the class name that actually implements your field type. Typos, renaming, and keeping implementation in sync with the xml-definition file(s) has been my "issue".

The class name is matching with the Type name field but still getting the error.
Any ideas what else could be wrong?

Thanks dude,

I misspelled the namespace in the FieldTypeClass Field element and that was the causing of the error.
