Pieter has blogged today with an example of using an XML configuration file together with the Zend_Form component of the Zend Framework to create a simple form - in his example, a login form.
During my interneship if been busy with Zend_Form and XML and now I like to share it with you. So here is a very easy, complete example that shows it in action. Let's make a small login form from XML with Zend_Form.
The Zend Framework has the functionality for this already built in - a call to create a Zend_Config_Xml object passing in the XML file's name is all it takes. He includes a sample XML file that shows the setup of the form as well as how to perform some of the validation techniques (like checking length and pattern matching).
