To use HTML in a Zend Framework Form standard label you will first have to set the escape option in the relevant Label decorator to false. Like so:
Here´s an example combining Zend mail and Zend View for easy mail templating.
To set the selected value of a select element in a Zend Form object you need to use it's setValue method:
To insert the current date / time MySQL offers the convenient NOW() function that can be used in an insert query. To use this same function inside a Zend framework db adapter insert statement you can use the following syntax:
To choose another layout file inside your controller all you need to do is invoke the layout helper like so:
To access the view instance from your homemade view helper you just need to create a setView method and view property. This will be automatically called upon instantiation, setting the view variable to point at the view instance.
The default routing setup for Zend is ':module/:controller/:action/*'
Often when using the Zend Form components it's convenient to Extend the Zend Form class. To set the action to of the form it will be necessary to access the base url helper method of the view object.
Because you don't have direct access to the view object from inside a Zend Form object, you have to do something like this:
If you're using Zend Framework 1.8+, and created your project with the command line tool, then it's as simple as registering your database settings in your application.ini config file.
Partials are handy because they allow you to dissect html code and template logic into smaller reusable bits. PartialLoops allow you to loop through objects and arrays in an efficient manner and in a seperate variable scope.
Sometimes it is neccessary to access variables and their values from the view object's scope that the partial was called from.
This can be done quite easily from the by calling the partialLoop() or partial() (or another view helper's) method from the partial template and then accessing the view object from that.
You can use Zend_db_profiler to capture and examine the sql queries or statements that Zend db adapter forms and executes. example:
To get the request parameters in a Zend framework controller action you can use:
To register frontController plugins in the ZF (1.8 and higher) application.ini file you can use the following syntax:
To be able to set application wide constants inside the application ini file you can define a function as follows in the bootstrap class:
To change from the default view script (based on the action's name) and dynamically pick another view script to render you can use the following code:
Just add the following to layout.phtml (or the file of your layout template is in)
To disable the layout and the viewrenderer on the fly inside a controller you can use the following lines :
The default response segment your controllers action are outputting to is 'content'.
To change/set what response segment is written to inside your controller actions you can use the setResponseSegment method of the viewrenderer helper:
