CFormElementCollection

Package system.web.form
Inheritance class CFormElementCollection » CMap » CComponent
Implements Countable, ArrayAccess, Traversable, IteratorAggregate
Since 1.1
Source Code framework/web/form/CFormElementCollection.php
CFormElementCollection implements the collection for storing form elements.

Because CFormElementCollection extends from CMap, it can be used like an associative array. For example,
$element=$collection['username'];
$collection['username']=array('type'=>'text', 'maxlength'=>128);
$collection['password']=new CFormInputElement(array('type'=>'password'),$form);
$collection[]='some string';


CFormElementCollection can store three types of value: a configuration array, a CFormElement object, or a string, as shown in the above example. Internally, these values will be converted to CFormElement objects.

Method Details

__construct() method
public void __construct(CForm $form, boolean $forButtons=false)
$form CForm the form object that owns this collection
$forButtons boolean whether this collection is used to store buttons.
Source Code: framework/web/form/CFormElementCollection.php#41 (show)
public function __construct($form,$forButtons=false)
{
    
parent::__construct();
    
$this->_form=$form;
    
$this->_forButtons=$forButtons;
}

Constructor.

add() method
public void add(mixed $key, mixed $value)
$key mixed key
$value mixed value
Source Code: framework/web/form/CFormElementCollection.php#57 (show)
public function add($key,$value)
{
    if(
is_array($value))
    {
        if(
is_string($key))
            
$value['name']=$key;

        if(
$this->_forButtons)
        {
            
$class=$this->_form->buttonElementClass;
            
$element=new $class($value,$this->_form);
        }
        else
        {
            if(!isset(
$value['type']))
                
$value['type']='text';
            if(
$value['type']==='string')
            {
                unset(
$value['type'],$value['name']);
                
$element=new CFormStringElement($value,$this->_form);
            }
            elseif(!
strcasecmp(substr($value['type'],-4),'form'))    // a form
            
{
                
$class=$value['type']==='form' get_class($this->_form) : Yii::import($value['type']);
                
$element=new $class($value,null,$this->_form);
            }
            else
            {
                
$class=$this->_form->inputElementClass;
                
$element=new $class($value,$this->_form);
            }
        }
    }
    elseif(
$value instanceof CFormElement)
    {
        if(
property_exists($value,'name') && is_string($key))
            
$value->name=$key;
        
$element=$value;
    }
    else
        
$element=new CFormStringElement(array('content'=>$value),$this->_form);
    
parent::add($key,$element);
    
$this->_form->addedElement($key,$element,$this->_forButtons);
}

Adds an item to the collection. This method overrides the parent implementation to ensure only configuration arrays, strings, or CFormElement objects can be stored in this collection.

remove() method
public void remove(string $key)
$key string the name of the element to be removed from the collection
Source Code: framework/web/form/CFormElementCollection.php#106 (show)
public function remove($key)
{
    if((
$item=parent::remove($key))!==null)
        
$this->_form->removedElement($key,$item,$this->_forButtons);
}

Removes the specified element by key.
