Well, I have really never seen using array in XML form fields.

Thank you for the reply.

So what you want to say is that is not possible to create an array via xml.

I should to put a "team" textbox in the form with a button at the right.
When I press the button, with jQuery or Mootools, I've a new "team" textbox under the previous.
How can I do that with the definition of the field in the XML file?

due to xml parsing all fields into the jform array, you have to escape the second array correctly.
so instead of using
arrayname[arrayindex]
you have to use
arrayname][arrayindex]

good luck.
