MaltBlue.com:
Zend Framework 2 Forms - Simple and Available Everywhere
April 04, 2013 @ 11:29:49

Matt Setter has a new post to his site today about forms in Zend Framework 2 including a full example on how to use them to create a form for user information (first name, last name).

I think it goes without saying, forms are one of the central elements of any web-based application. They're used for everything from logging in, to searching content and managing information. Given that, they should be first-class citizens, able to be developed and reused with relative ease. [...] However, given the amount of options, configurability and flexibility required, this isn't always easy. [...] In today's post, I'm going to assume you have a basic understanding of how forms work now. [...] I'm going to show you how to create flexible, reusable forms in one module and by the power of the ServiceManager reuse them throughout your application.

He starts with the inclusion of a dependency needed for his example - the ZfcUser component (installed via Composer). He then moves on to the actual code for the form creating a reusable module, an entity class for the User and the Fieldset/Form classes for the contents of the form. He also includes the code for the controller action and the view that outputs the form itself and handles the repopulation automagically (and includes a CSRF token).
