Hot to Use the Zend Form ViewScript Decorator in All Modules
Aug 09, 2012 @ 08:52:38

On his MaltBlue.com site today, Matt Setter has a new post showing you how to use the Zend_Form ViewScript decorator in your Zend Framework-based application's forms.

If you've been using Zend Forms for any length of time, you'll know just how flexible and configurable they are. [...] We can, as I'm quite fond of, use the ViewScript decorator. This allows us to have nearly 100% control of the configuration of the look and feel of our rendered forms.

The ViewScript decorator lets you have full control over the layout of your form, letting you use a view (file) to define the markup for the form and injecting your elements into it. There is an issue with using the form in other modules though - it can't find the view file by default. The solution is to pass in a viewModule when using the form, showing it where it can find the view.
