Use Render Element Types in a Render Array for Drupal 8, 9, and 10

There are a bunch of existing render elements, most commonly Form API elements. You need to know how to discover and make use of existing elements. In this tutorial, we'll learn how to:

  • Locate a list of elements provided by Drupal core
  • Figure out what properties apply to each element
  • Use any render element type when defining content or forms in our code

By the end of this tutorial you should know what render element types are available for you to use, and how to find the details you'll need in order to implement them in your own render arrays.
