Stuck with Symfony2 forms? Want to know how to easily solve (complex) form use-cases? This book contains practical recipes that are easily implemented in your own projects, and give you insight in the form component in general.

The book contains a set of recipes based around the form component that can help you solve complex problems in a simple manner. Use them directly into your own code, or use them as templates to build your own solutions. Either way, this book will help you quickly and efficiently.

A few examples of the recipes:

  • A dynamic value object data mapper.
  • Using multiple forms inside a single controller.
  • Data transformers and filtering/sanitizing.

The Symfony Rainbow Series is a collection of books, which describe, in detail, the different components that make up the Symfony framework.
