NAME ^

Catalyst::Model::FormFu - Speedier interface to HTML::FormFu for Catalyst

VERSION ^

version 0.004

SYNOPSIS ^

    package MyApp
    {

        use parent 'Catalyst';

        __PACKAGE__->config( 'Model::FormFu' => {
            model_stash => { schema => 'MySchema' },
            constructor => { config_file_path => 'myapp/root/forms' },
            forms => {
                form1 => 'form1.yaml',
                form2 => 'form2.yaml',
            ]
        } );

    }

    package MyApp::Controller::WithForms
    {
        use parent 'Catalyst::Controller';

        sub edit :Local
        {
            my ($self, $c, @args) = @_;

            my $form1 = $c->model('FormFu')->form('form1');

            if ($form1->submitted_and_valid)
            ...
        }

    }

    package MyApp::Model::FormFu
    {
        use parent 'Catalyst::Model::FormFu';
    }

DESCRIPTION ^

Catalyst::Model::FormFu is an alternative interface for using HTML::FormFu within Catalyst. It differs from Catalyst::Controller::HTML::FormFu in the following ways:

Note that this is a completely different module from the original Catalyst::Model::FormFu by Daisuke Maki, which is now only available on the BackPAN (http://backpan.perl.org/authors/id/D/DM/DMAKI/Catalyst-Model-FormFu-0.01001.tar.gz).

CONFIGURATION OPTIONS ^

Catalyst::Model::FormFu accepts the following configuration options

forms

A hashref where keys are the names by which the forms will be accessed, and the values are the configuration files that will be loaded for the respective forms.

constructor

A hashref of options that will be passed to HTML::FormFu->new(...) for every form that is created.

model_stash

A hashref with a stash key whose value is the name of a Catalyst model class that will be place in the form stash for use by HTML::FormFu::Model::DBIC.

config_callback

If true (the default), a coderef is passed to $form->config_callback->{plain_value} which replaces any instance of __uri_for(URI)__ found in form config files with the result of passing the URI argument to "uri_for" in Catalyst.

The form __uri_for(URI, PATH, PARTS)__ is also supported, which is equivalent to $c->uri_for( 'URI', \@ARGS ). At this time, there is no way to pass query values equivalent to $c->uri_for( 'URI', \@ARGS, \%QUERY_VALUES ).

The second codeword that is being replaced is __path_to( @DIRS )__. Any instance is replaced with the result of passing the DIRS arguments to "path_to" in Catalyst. Don't use quotation marks as they would become part of the path.

default_action_use_name

If set to a true value the action for the form will be set to the currently called action name.

default_action_use_path

If set to a true value the action for the form will be set to the currently called action path.

The action path includes concurrent to action name additional parameters which were code inside the path.

Example:

    action: /foo/bar
    called uri contains: /foo/bar/1

    # default_action_use_name => 1 leads to:
    $form->action = /foo/bar

    # default_action_use_path => 1 leads to:
    $form->action = /foo/bar/1
context_stash

To allow your form validation packages, etc, access to the catalyst context, a weakened reference of the context is copied into the form's stash.

    $form->stash->{context};

This setting allows you to change the key name used in the form stash.

Default value: context

languages_from_context

If you're using a L10N / I18N plugin such as Catalyst::Plugin::I18N which provides a languages method that returns a list of valid languages to use for the current request - and you want to use FormFu's built-in I18N packages, then setting "languages_from_context"

localize_from_context

If you're using a L10N / I18N plugin such as Catalyst::Plugin::I18N which provides it's own localize method, you can set localize_from_context to use that method for FormFu's localization.

USAGE ^

Use the form method of the model to fetch one or more forms by their names. The form is loaded with the current request parameters and processed.
