A Bootstrap 3 enhanced version of yii\widgets\ActiveField.

This class adds some useful features to ActiveField to render all sorts of Bootstrap 3 form fields in different form layouts:

There are also some new placeholders that you can use in the $template configuration:

  • {beginLabel}: the opening label tag
  • {labelTitle}: the label title for use with {beginLabel}/{endLabel}
  • {endLabel}: the closing label tag
  • {beginWrapper}: the opening wrapper tag
  • {endWrapper}: the closing wrapper tag

The wrapper tag is only used for some layouts and form elements.

Note that some elements use slightly different defaults for $template and other options. You may want to override those predefined templates for checkboxes, radio buttons, checkboxLists and radioLists in the fieldConfig of the yii\widgets\ActiveForm:

Example:

use yii\bootstrap\ActiveForm;

$form = ActiveForm::begin(['layout' => 'horizontal']);

// Form field without label
echo $form->field($model, 'demo', [
    'inputOptions' => [
        'placeholder' => $model->getAttributeLabel('demo'),
    ],
])->label(false);

// Inline radio list
echo $form->field($model, 'demo')->inline()->radioList($items);

// Control sizing in horizontal mode
echo $form->field($model, 'demo', [
    'horizontalCssClasses' => [
        'wrapper' => 'col-sm-2',
    ]
]);

// With 'default' layout you would use 'template' to size a specific field:
echo $form->field($model, 'demo', [
    'template' => '{label} <div class="row"><div class="col-sm-4">{input}{error}{hint}</div></div>'
]);

// Input group
echo $form->field($model, 'demo', [
    'inputTemplate' => '<div class="input-group"><span class="input-group-addon">@</span>{input}</div>',
]);

ActiveForm::end();

Method Details

__construct() public method

Constructor.

The default implementation does two things:

  • Initializes the object with the given configuration $config.
  • Call init().

If this method is overridden in a child class, it is recommended that

  • the last parameter of the constructor is a configuration array, like $config here.
  • call the parent implementation at the end of the constructor.
public void __construct ( $config = [] )
$config array

Name-value pairs that will be used to initialize the object properties

checkbox() public method

Renders a checkbox.

This method will generate the checked tag attribute according to the model attribute value.

public $this checkbox ( $options = [], $enclosedByLabel true )
$options array

The tag options in terms of name-value pairs. The following options are specially handled:

  • uncheck: string, the value associated with the uncheck state of the radio button. If not set, it will take the default value 0. This method will render a hidden input so that if the radio button is not checked and is submitted, the value of this attribute will still be submitted to the server via the hidden input. If you do not want any hidden input, you should explicitly set this option as null.
  • label: string, a label displayed next to the checkbox. It will NOT be HTML-encoded. Therefore you can pass in HTML code such as an image tag. If this is coming from end users, you should encode it to prevent XSS attacks. When this option is specified, the checkbox will be enclosed by a label tag. If you do not want any label, you should explicitly set this option as null.
  • labelOptions: array, the HTML attributes for the label tag. This is only used when the label option is specified.

The rest of the options will be rendered as the attributes of the resulting tag. The values will be HTML-encoded using yii\bootstrap\Html::encode(). If a value is null, the corresponding attribute will not be rendered.

If you set a custom id for the input element, you may need to adjust the $selectors accordingly.

$enclosedByLabel boolean

Whether to enclose the checkbox within the label. If true, the method will still use $template to layout the checkbox and the error message except that the checkbox is enclosed by the label tag.

return $this

The field object itself.

checkboxList() public method

Renders a list of checkboxes.

A checkbox list allows multiple selection, like listBox(). As a result, the corresponding submitted value is an array. The selection of the checkbox list is taken from the value of the model attribute.

public $this checkboxList ( $items, $options = [] )
$items array

The data item used to generate the checkboxes. The array values are the labels, while the array keys are the corresponding checkbox values.

$options array

Options (name => config) for the checkbox list. For the list of available options please refer to the $options parameter of yii\helpers\Html::activeCheckboxList().

return $this

The field object itself.

createLayoutConfig() protected method

protected array createLayoutConfig ( $instanceConfig )
$instanceConfig array

The configuration passed to this instance's constructor

return array

The layout specific default configuration for this instance

inline() public method

public $this inline ( $value true )
$value boolean

Whether to render a inline list

return $this

The field object itself Make sure you call this method before checkboxList() or radioList() to have any effect.

label() public method

Generates a label tag for $attribute.

public $this label ( $label null, $options = [] )
$label null|string|false

The label to use. If null, the label will be generated via \yii\bootstrap\Model::getAttributeLabel(). If false, the generated field will not contain the label part. Note that this will NOT be encoded.

$options null|array

The tag options in terms of name-value pairs. It will be merged with $labelOptions. The options will be rendered as the attributes of the resulting tag. The values will be HTML-encoded using yii\bootstrap\Html::encode(). If a value is null, the corresponding attribute will not be rendered.

return $this

The field object itself.

radio() public method

Renders a radio button.

This method will generate the checked tag attribute according to the model attribute value.

public $this radio ( $options = [], $enclosedByLabel true )
$options array

The tag options in terms of name-value pairs. The following options are specially handled:

  • uncheck: string, the value associated with the uncheck state of the radio button. If not set, it will take the default value 0. This method will render a hidden input so that if the radio button is not checked and is submitted, the value of this attribute will still be submitted to the server via the hidden input. If you do not want any hidden input, you should explicitly set this option as null.
  • label: string, a label displayed next to the radio button. It will NOT be HTML-encoded. Therefore you can pass in HTML code such as an image tag.

radioList() public method

Renders a list of radio buttons.

A radio button list is like a checkbox list, except that it only allows single selection. The selection of the radio buttons is taken from the value of the model attribute.

public $this radioList ( $items, $options = [] )
$items array

The data item used to generate the radio buttons. The array values are the labels, while the array keys are the corresponding radio values.

function ($field) {
    return $html;
}
return string

The rendering result.
