The content_migrate.install Drupal example source code


 * Transfer weights from the D6 Manage Fields screen
 * to the D7 stored settings array. Do this once only, on install,
 * so later changes to these values in the Field UI screen will
 * not be overwritten.
function content_migrate_install() {
  $stored_settings = variable_get('field_bundle_settings', array());

  // $stored_settings might be empty, set up the basic structure of the
  // array to avoid errors.
  if (empty($stored_settings) || !array_key_exists('node', $stored_settings)) {
    $stored_settings['node'] = array();
  foreach (node_type_get_names() as $type_name => $label) {
    // This type name may not yet exist in the array, set it up.
    if (!array_key_exists($type_name, $stored_settings['node'])) {
      $stored_settings['node'][$type_name] = array(
        'extra_fields' => array('form' => array(), 'display' => array()),
        'view_modes' => array(),
    $weights = variable_get('content_extra_weights_'. $type_name, array());
    // If body has never been set in D6, it should be set to 0 to match the way D6 worked.
    // The D7 core update may have set it to a value like -4.

      $stored_settings['node'][$type_name]['extra_fields']['form']['body'] = array('weight' => 0);
    // If a field name provided by a custom module has changed from D6 to D7,
    // they will have to alter this array too. We will set the original
    // field name, other modules could take this information and move it 
    // to a setting with the new field name.

    // @TODO Have any of the other core field names changed?
    // @TODO Should we do anything to alter the display settings?
