The symfony forms framework is quite impressive and saves a lot of time in a developpers live!

I’m posting a Widget which handles “readonly” fields. One could use the html attribute “disabled” by setting the attribute property of a widget:

$this->widgetSchema['readonlyfieldname']->setAttribute('disabled', 'disabled');

The problem is that “disabled” elements are ignored when posting the form.

So we need another solution. I came up with a simple WidgetForm which outputs a div tag with the current value and the field itself as a hidden input:

 * cnWidgetFormInputTextReadonly represents a readonly HTML text input tag.
 * @package    cn
 * @subpackage widget
 * @author     Markus Welter 
 * @version    SVN: $Id: cnWidgetFormInputTextReadonly.class.php 23810 2010-02-21 19:25:44Z markus $
class cnWidgetFormInputTextReadonly extends sfWidgetForm
   * @param array $options     An array of options
   * @param array $attributes  An array of default HTML attributes
   * @see sfWidgetForm
  protected function configure($options = array(), $attributes = array())
    parent::configure($options, $attributes);
    $this->setOption('class', 'readonlyWidget');

  public function render($name, $value = null, $attributes = array(), $errors = array())
    return '

'.$this->renderTag('input', array_merge(array('type' => 'hidden', 'name' => $name, 'value' => $value), $attributes)); } }
