Synopsis

Usage ( <FORM NAME="name"> )

Description

Example

Using an element to change a template.

<?php
$form 
= new HTML_Template_Flexy();
$form->compile('some_file_name');

// create an instance (note you dont have to specify any details..)

$elements['theform'] = new HTML_Template_Flexy_Element;

// change an attribute
$elements['theform']->attributes['action'] = 'http://pear.php.net';

//  


// for the different types of elements:
$elements['test_textarea'] = new HTML_Template_Flexy_Element;
$elements['test_textarea']->setValue('Blogs');


// select options
$elements['test_select'] = new HTML_Template_Flexy_Element;
$elements['test_select']->setOptions( array(
  
'123' => 'a select option',
  
'1234' => 'another select option'
));
$elements['test_select']->setValue('1234');

// checkboxes
$elements['test_checkbox'] = new HTML_Template_Flexy_Element;
$elements['test_checkbox']->setValue(1);

// array type checkboxes..
$elements['test_checkbox_array[]'] = new HTML_Template_Flexy_Element;
$elements['test_checkbox_array[]']->setValue(array(1,2));

// radio buttons
$val 'yes';
$elements['test_radio'] = new HTML_Template_Flexy_Element;
// if you have a default - you may want default to using it..
$elements['test_radio']->setValue($val != 'no' $val 'no');


$form->outputObject(new StdClass$elements);
