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.

About the Symfony Rainbow Series:

The Symfony Rainbow Series is a collection of books, which describe, in detail, the different components that make up the Symfony framework. Every book will concentrate on a single component or a set of smaller components. The books will describe the component's inner workings and also give you recipes to solve common problems quickly and efficiently.

These books are intended for PHP developers with any level of knowledge of Symfony, from beginner to expert. They are especially made for those developers, who work with or want to work with Symfony and want to also do their programming with Symfony as smartly and efficiently as possible. If you would like to learn exactly how the inner workings of Symfony function together as a framework or how to use the wide range of Symfony components in a standalone fashion, then these books are for you!
