to not let this part of the thread totally unresolved (for the archive
readers): I made the "mistake" to use the security reviewed version of
TV (1.1.1 at time of writing) delivered with the current TYPO3
So I _have_ to apologize, the failure was on my side (as I expected).
When one upgrades to the current version of TV (1.3.1 at time of
writing) the "<displayHeaderFields>" feature works as expected and shows
the content of the configured fields.
Also note this undocumented feature:
If you click _anywhere_ (labels, existing content) in the shown header
preview, then the "Edit page properties" form is called ... but
restricted to just the fields shown in the header configured by
"<displayHeaderFields>" and in the same order as configured!!!
Thus this is a nice and easy way to have the page properties form
_customized_ to editors needs.
config in the XML DS:
the resulting view (in TV 1.3.1):
and the reduced/reordered form resulting from that:
However, the "<titleBarColor>" feature obviously got lost somewhere in
the process of upgrading/bugfixing TV, without notice:
there is no "titleBarColor" string (in the documented sense) anywhere
in the sources of TV 1.3.1 ... except for the Changelog.txt

* Bugfix: headerfields, titlebarcolor etc. didn't work with inherited
datastructures. Now they do.
* New hook in pi1: renderElement_preProcessRow
* Prepared some things about multi language support. Don't use it yet!
* Guess what: Updated manual
2004-06-04 Robert Lemke <robert at typo3.org>
* Added new tag for data structures: <titleBarColor> (configures page
* Updated manual
Take or ignore this from some lazy idiot
