Code Samples

Frameworks

Included frameworks

This document gives you quick examples of different layouts and form elements.

Most examples are displayed using Bootstrap 4 layout.
The other frameworks (Bootstrap 3, Foundation, and Material Design) are using the same markup.

To change the framework you just have to change the framework argument when you instanciate your form.

// default Bootstrap 4 form
$form = new Form('form-name', 'horizontal', 'novalidate');

// Bootstrap 3 form
$form = new Form('form-name', 'horizontal', 'novalidate', 'bs3');

// Foundation form
$form = new Form('form-name', 'horizontal', 'novalidate', 'foundation');

// Material form
$form = new Form('form-name', 'horizontal', 'novalidate', 'material');

Customize for other frameworks

Each framework has its own markup and CSS classes. For example, some framework wrap radio buttons & checkboxes into their label, whereas others don't.

Bootstrap adds a CSS form-control class to the form elements, but other frameworks don't.

All these specificities are defined by the options property of the form, including responsive rows & columns.

The HTML code generated by PHP Form Builder can be easily customized to be used with any framework:
Semantic-UI, Pure, Skeleton, UIKit, Milligram, Susy, Bulma, Kube, ...

$custom_options = array(
    // options here
);
$form->setOptions($custom_options);

Layout

Horizontal forms

In horizontal forms, labels and fields are displayed in two responsive columns whose width you can define.

$form = new Form('my-form', 'horizontal', 'novalidate');

// 3 columns label, 9 columns field, breakpoint = small screens
$form->setCols(3, 9, 'sm');

$form->addInput('text', 'user-name', '', 'User Name', 'required');

<div class="form-group row justify-content-end">
	<label for="user-name" class="col-sm-3 col-form-label">
		User Name <sup class="text-danger">* </sup>
	</label>
	<div class="col-sm-9">
		<input id="user-name" name="user-name" type="text" value="" required class="form-control">
	</div>
</div>

Vertical forms

In vertical forms, labels are displayed above the fields. Vertical forms don't use columns.

$form = new Form('my-form', 'vertical', 'novalidate');
$form->addInput('text', 'user-name', '', 'User Name', 'required');

<div class="form-group">
	<label for="user-name" class="form-control-label">
		User Name <sup class="text-danger">* </sup>
	</label>
	<input id="user-name" name="user-name" type="text" value="" required class="form-control">
</div>

Inline forms

Inline forms display labels and fields on the line without containers.

$form = new Form('my-form', 'inline', 'novalidate');
$form->addInput('text', 'user-name', '', 'User Name', 'class=ml-3, required');

<div class="form-group">
	<label for="user-name" class="form-control-label">
		User Name <sup class="text-danger">* </sup>
	</label>
	<input id="user-name" name="user-name" type="text" value="" class="ml-3 form-control" required>
</div>

Input groups

Input groups allow you to group several fields in the same row.

This is only possible in horizontal forms, which are the only ones to use a responsive layout with columns and rows.

$form = new Form('my-form', 'horizontal', 'novalidate');

// 2 columns label, 4 columns field, breakpoint = small screens
$form->setCols(2, 4, 'sm');

$form->groupInputs('user-name', 'user-first-name');

$form->addInput('text', 'user-name', '', 'Name', 'required');
$form->addInput('text', 'user-first-name', '', 'First name');

<div class="form-group row justify-content-end">
	<label for="user-name" class="col-sm-2 col-form-label">
		Name <sup class="text-danger">* </sup>
	</label>
	<div class="col-sm-4">
		<input id="user-name" name="user-name" type="text" value="" required class="form-control fv-group">
	</div>
	<label for="user-first-name" class="col-sm-2 col-form-label">
		First name
	</label>
	<div class="col-sm-4">
		<input id="user-first-name" name="user-first-name" type="text" value=""  class="form-control fv-group">
	</div>
</div>

Columns

To create a 2-column form, insert the html code in the appropriate places using the addHtml() function.

$form = new Form('my-form', 'vertical', 'novalidate');

$form->addHtml('<div class="row">');
$form->addHtml('<div class="col-6">');

$form->addInput('text', 'user-name', '', 'Name', 'required');
$form->addInput('text', 'user-first-name', '', 'First Name', 'required');

$form->addHtml('</div>');
$form->addHtml('<div class="col-6">');

$form->addInput('email', 'user-email', '', 'Email', 'required');
$form->addInput('tel', 'user-phone', '', 'Phone', 'required');

$form->addHtml('</div>');
$form->addHtml('</div>');

<div class="row">
	<div class="col-6">
		<div class="form-group">
			<label for="user-name" class="form-control-label">
				Name <sup class="text-danger">* </sup>
			</label>
			<input id="user-name" name="user-name" type="text" value="" required class="form-control">
