Gregwar's FormBundle

paypal

GregwarFormBundle provides the form type "entity_id"

Installation

To install GregwarFormBundle, run composer require gregwar/form-bundle.

Then, register the bundle in the application kernel :

<?php
// app/AppKernel.php
//...
public function registerBundles()
{
    $bundles = array(
        ...
        new Gregwar\FormBundle\GregwarFormBundle(),
        ...
    );
...

Finally, add the following block to the configuration :

# app/config/config.yml
gregwar_form: ~

Usage

The entity_id is a field that contains an entity id, this assumes you set up javascripts or any UI logics to fill it programmatically.

The usage look like the entity field type one, except that the query builder have to returns one unique result. One full example :

<?php
//...
$builder
    ->add('city', 'entity_id', array(
        'class' => 'Project\Entity\City',
        'query_builder' => function(EntityRepository $repo, $id) {
            return $repo->createQueryBuilder('c')
                ->where('c.id = :id AND c.available = 1')
                ->setParameter('id', $id);
        }
    ))
    ;

Note that if you don't provide any query builder, ->find($id) will be used.

You can also chose to show the field, by passing the hidden option to false:

<?php
//...
$builder
    ->add('city', 'entity_id', array(
        'class' => 'Project\Entity\City',
        'hidden' => false,
        'label' => 'Enter the City id'
    ))
    ;

Using the property option, you can also use another identifier than the primary key:

<?php
//...
$builder
    ->add('recipient', 'entity_id', array(
        'class' => 'Project\Entity\User',
        'hidden' => false,
        'property' => 'login',
        'label' => 'Recipient login'
    ))
    ;

Notes

There is maybe bugs in this implementations, this package is just an idea of a form field type which can be very useful for the Symfony2 project.
