IN the AD, such reference i.e. Table and TableDirect will return the Value or DocumentNo or other Identifier u define instead of its raw record_ID.

For example lets say a C_Order_ID (from a Sales Order) is 1000001, it shuld show up as DocNo.

IF its M_Product_ID (in this case its a Product table), it shuld show up as its Value i.e. "PatioSet" instead of 100.

i know that these type controls the display of the field so how Compiere map them to the way they look. Are these values are hardcoded?

What if i added a new one.How can i determine the way it will look like(Shape and dimensions i mean)

These are datatypes for the codes to handle dynamically as set in the AD.

They are for casting the fields to proper datatypes and this including its shape and dimension are determined in the AD codes. To add or change them would require deeper study of the source codes.
