In my view:
<?php echo $form->labelEx($model,'henkilötunnus'); ?> <?php echo $form->textField($model,'ht',array('size'=>20,'maxlength'=>11)); ?>
in my model:
and in rules:
array('fname, lname, ht', 'required'),
I would like to have the form input fields name to be different than the label (what the user sees). This site is in Finnish so Henkilötunnus is what I want to be displayed and I would like to have "ht" to be the name of the text input. For some reason Henkilötunnus is displayed as: Henkil�tunnus so the ö is not displayed correctly and I'm sure this applies to all special characters that are used in label. I know I can do a workarround and not do the $form->labelEx($model,'henkilötunnus'); part. But just want to know what is the "correct" way to do this now before I start by doing things the "wrong" way.
I'm totally new to Frameworks and Yii but I've done a lot with php and template engines.
I do understand MVC but I've never developed anything using this method.
I'm using Yii 1.1.4 and the example site that came with it as a starting point for a test application I'm making to see if Yii would be a good way for us to make web apps from now on.
Any help would be appreciated.
