This package can be used to generate and validate.

There is the main class that can generate and validate the form.

There is a generic form control class and several derived classes that can render all the basic types of form inputs and also custom inputs.

The form can be rendered with templates that contain marks that determine where the inputs and labels appear.

The main class can validate form inputs using several types of built-in rules, as well with custom rules implemented by configurable functions and parameters.

Zebra PHP Framework PHP HTML Form Processor Class author Stefan Gabos, ix at nivelzero dot ro version 1.0 BETA (last revision: December 18, 2006) copyright (c) 2006 Stefan Gabos A PHP class for HTML forms generation and validation. It provides an easy and intuitive way of handling both HTML form design (based on templates) and basic server-side form validation. Custom validation (both server-side and client-side) can also be implemented very easily. It provides all the basic controls available in an HTML form like text controls, textarea controls, submit buttons, reset buttons, standard buttons, drop down boxes, radio buttons, checkboxes, image controls, hidden controls, file upload controls, password controls and a date picker control. In order for the date control to work you must also download the PHP Date Picker Class from this address and configure the PHP Form Generation and Validation Class by setting the datePickerPath property to point to the date picker class This work is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 2.5 License.
