Subpackages

Subpackages – An overview about subpackages and packages that use QuickForm

Subpackages for HTML_QuickForm

This section describes the available subpackages for HTML_QuickForm, e.g. custom elements or renderers.

HTML_QuickForm_advmultiselect

A custom element that emulates via two select boxes a select box that allows selecting of multiple options.

HTML_QuickForm_DHTMLRulesTableless

If you use the Tableless renderer (see below, HTML_QuickForm_Renderer_Tableless), this subpackage replaces the default client-side validation with a JavaScript alert window by dynamic (using DHTML) error messages that are printed directly above each erroneous element. (documentation)

HTML_QuickForm_Livesearch

This is another custom element. It creates an HTML input text element that at every keypressed javascript event, returns a list of options in a dynamic dropdown select box (especially useful to emulate a select box with a huge number of options). This element uses the AJAX technology.

HTML_QuickForm_Renderer_Tableless

This is a replacement for the default renderer of HTML_QuickForm that uses only XHTML and CSS but no table tags, and generates fully valid XHTML output. (documentation)

HTML_QuickForm_SelectFilter

Another custom element that is used to define dynamic filters on the client-side for select elements.

More subpackages

There are some more subpackages available that were not yet proposed as PEAR packages. An example is a DHTMLRules subpackage for forms using the default renderer by Justin Patrin that was not yet proposed as a PEAR package.

Packages that use HTML_QuickForm

This section describes some packages that makes working with HTML_QuickForm easier, either in the case of working with databases or in the case of forms that have multiple pages.

DB_DataObject_FormBuilder

FormBuilder aids in rapid application development using the packages DB_DataObject and HTML_QuickForm. (documentation)

DB_Table

This is a package that builds on PEAR DB and MDB2 to abstract datatypes and automate table creation, data validation, insert, update, delete, and select. It combines these with HTML_QuickForm to automatically generate input forms that match the table column definitions. (documentation)

HTML_QuickForm_Controller

If you want to create forms with multiple pages, this is the right package for you. It is an implementation of a PageController pattern. (documentation)

More packages

You can find more packages that have optional or required dependencies on HTML_QuickForm on the package site.
