CFormModel represents a data model that collects HTML form inputs.

Unlike CActiveRecord, the data collected by CFormModel are stored in memory only, instead of database.

To collect user inputs, you may extend CFormModel and define the attributes whose values are to be collected from user inputs. You may override rules() to declare validation rules that should be applied to the attributes.

Method Details

__construct() method
public void __construct(array $attributes=array ( ), string $scenario='')
$attributes array initial attributes (name => value). The attributes are subject to filtering via setAttributes.
$scenario string scenario name. See setAttributes for more details about this parameter. This parameter has been available since version 1.0.2. As of version 1.0.4, this parameter will be used to set the scenario property of the model.

Constructor.

See Also

attributeNames() method
public array attributeNames()
{return} array list of attribute names. Defaults to all public properties of the class.

Returns the list of attribute names. By default, this method returns all public properties of the class. You may override this method to change the default.

getValidators() method
public array getValidators()
{return} array list of validators created according to rules.

init() method (available since v1.0.8)
public void init()

Initializes this model. This method is invoked in the constructor right after scenario is set. You may override this method to provide code that is needed to initialize the model (e.g. setting initial property values.)

safeAttributes() method (available since v1.0.2)
public array safeAttributes()
{return} array list of safe attribute names.

Returns the name of attributes that are safe to be massively assigned. The default implementation simply returns attributeNames. This method may be overridden by child classes. See CModel::safeAttributes for more details about how to override this method.
