Rob Allen's' Blog:
A Zend Framwork compound form element for dates
March 21, 2011 @ 12:23:08

In a new post to his blog today Rob Allen shows you how to create compound form element handling in a Zend Framework application thanks to some custom work with Zend_Form and Zend_View extensions.

A little bit of googling found this site http://codecaine.co.za/posts/compound-elements-with-zend-form which has not unfortunately disappeared, so the code in this article owes a lot of the author of that article. It turns out to be remarkably simple to create a single Zend Form element that is rendered as multiple form elements. We create an element object and a view helper object and we're done.

He shows how to create a custom form date helper that extends the base XHTML to create the isValid/getValue methods for handling the complex date input. There's also the code for the view that creates the custom date input and repopulates the content if there's a need.
