#8186 new enhancement

xprofile field type display_filter method should provide more data

I have a custom field type(file) and I am trying to use cloud storage for the files.
In order to do that, I am storing a meta key with the data id(not field id as field ids are not unique per instance of data).

To fetch, I need to filter on the value in my display_filter method. The data provided in this method are only value and field id.

We need either field id & user id to find the profile data or we need the data id.

I checked and I can see that the callback is being used by

xprofile_filter_format_field_value_by_type( $field_value, $field_type = '', $field_id = '' )

This function itself does not have any idea about the context it is being used.

Looking further, It seems 'xprofile_filter_format_field_value_by_type' is being used by
the filter


and the function


Is there anyway to resolve it in upcoming release.
