how to use field set?

Hello All,

                 I have an transaction object.

                 I have created one page i.e. massUpdateTransaction . in that i want to add field dynamically. Custom Setting is one way to do so.

                 Can i use field set instead of custom settings. and after moving it to the production,are we able to change field set fields ?

                 Please help.

ya use can use the fieldsets to dispaly the fields dynamically... first select the avaialble fields in the object and drag and drop the avaialble fields to selected fields section in the field set defiend on the object and you can bind the fieldset to a repeater or datatable like 

<apex:repeat value="{!$ObjectType.Contact.FieldSets.properNames}" var="f"> 
        <apex:outputText value="{!Contact[f]}" /><br/

After moving it to production you can change the values in field set.
