Creating Reusable Forms in Symfony 2
May 28, 2014 @ 12:53:55

NetTuts.com continues their series covering some of the basics of using the Symfony2 framework with this new screencast looking at creating reusable forms.

In this video, we'll build upon our existing knowledge of Symfony 2 to learn how to create reusable forms. We'll learn how to create a separate form class to house our form logic, build the form in a controller and then render it to the browser, from a template.

In the previous parts of the series they built up knowledge on the basics, routing, controllers and templates. In this screencast they use their DemoBundle to create the Person object, make a form populated with its data (name) and the Twig template to render the form.

Trevor Morris' Blog:
fuelphp, forms and validation
Jun 15, 2011 @ 09:57:28

In this post to his blog Trevor Morris talks about his own introduction to the Fuel framework and some of his investigation into working with its forms support and validating the user input that comes from them.

I have been working on developing a website with the newest PHP framework on the block - Fuel, which describes itself as "a simple, flexible, community driven PHP 5.3 web framework based on the best ideas of other frameworks with a fresh start". [...] Although Fuel is a new framework, it borrows a lot of ideas from two very popular PHP frameworks, CodeIgniter and Kohana.

He starts off with one concern, a lack of documentation around some things that made it difficult for him to work with the HTML form helpers. He includes an example code snippet to show a basic email form field generation. Behind the scenes, he shows how to use the Validation library to add rules on the fields and check for a pass/fail status on the fields.

Symfony Blog:
Read the symfony documentation offline
Feb 05, 2009 @ 10:21:10

Symfony developers that do work offline will be happy to know that the framework's documentation is now available as a PDF:

As of today, most of the symfony documentation is available as PDF files. The PDF files are available for all major symfony versions.

They also link to the Jobeet tutorial (Propel/Doctrine), their Forms book and Cookbook.

ThinkPHP Blog:
10 years phplib - a laudation
Jun 11, 2008 @ 11:19:43

The ThinkPHP blog points out a milestone for one of the libraries that help set PHP on its current course - PHPLIB (from Kris Koehntopp).

This great collection of classes was in my eyes the first real useful library which delivered the solution to most of the basic / standard problems in PHP based software projects. [...] The easy implementation of DB-abstraction, template engine, authentication, permissions, session management and others made it easy to handle these problems in a standardized way. The strict object oriented code gave the developer the necessary flexibility to customize and extend the code where he/she needs it.

This year is (about) the ten year mark for the existence of the language and several commentors on the post remember the "good ole days" of PHP3 sessions, permissions and even the first version of Zend's website.

Controlling Online Forms with Builder Objects in PHP 5 (Part 2)
Oct 11, 2006 @ 14:49:00

DevShed is continuing their "using builder objects in PHP5" series today with this new article, a look at implementing the builder objects in a simple, common bit of functionality - forms.

Mastering some of the most popular design patterns with PHP 5 can be sometimes an overwhelming process that requires hard work and experience. However, if you want to tackle the challenge and expand your existing background on them, this article might eventually find a place on your quick reference list.

They start by defining the basic form element class, helping to build out the different elemnts like inputs, selects, and submits. They extend and implement this class with their example, making a complete form with working elements inside.

Video - Processing Forms with PHP (Part 1)
Aug 14, 2006 @ 07:06:34

KillerPHP.com has posted another new video targeted at web designers today, explaining the basics of how form processing works with PHP.

In this video, I review a few key aspects about forms that relate directly to form processing with PHP. I cover these three attributes:
  • The 'action' attribute
  • The 'method' attribute
  • The 'name' attribute
In part 2, we will get into practical examples.

This video is a part of a series he's producing to provide a foundation for the non-programmer types in PHP (without scaring them off).
