before I open a ticket for my issue, I post it here to ask your opinions.
If I use a form without including a field in the view (E.G. I have a field comments that is not visible in some views) and I don't unset the field in the configure method of the form, when I save the form the missing field is overwritten as null.
I think this is a little weird. Don't you?
Do I have to implement two different subclasses, one with the comments field unset and one not?
Or should I have to unset comments field in the action where I don't want it to display?

Dear all,

I am trying to set field in a form for testing purpose.
Here is an excerpt of the file

$browser->get('/post/create') ;
$browser->click ( 'Save', array ( 'title' => 'Populated by a test run' ) ) ;

It does create a new record but does not populate the field 'title' with the value 'Populated by a test run'.

Do you see any reason for that in 1.1 (I tried to put 'post[title]' but does not work either).

Thx for your help, Fred.

I would like the following URL to be working (the tag is 'ac/dc'):

When I try this, it gives a 404 error.

The routing rule is:

  url:   /tag
  param: { module: event, action: tag }

Is there a way to allow some special characters, so that URL-encoded strings can be used in a pretty URL?

I'm having troubles loading data fixtures for unit tests with sfPropelPlugin loadData() and loadDataFromArray() as per Chapter 15 of symfony's book < al-Testing#Accessing%20a%20Database>.

loadData() is complaining about The object "County_3100906" from class "County" is not defined in your data file. when trying to load the file below:
    county_id: County_3100906
    activity_id: Activity_10025
    past: '40.00'
    present: '49.94'
    future: '111.66'

The "County_3100906" isn't really defined in the yml file because I'm trying to separate several fixtures for several different tests.

"County_3100906" is already at the database so referential integrity is guaranteed in my database. As loadData() still complains I can only understand that loadData() is complaning about the lack of referential integrity on the yml file!?!? Is this intented? Should yml fixture files be tested by this kind of validation? I thought yml fixture files where simple (as in no hassle) containers for data to be loaded. Just that.

Then I tried the second option present on the above link: loadDataFromArray(). Unfortunatelly I got the following error:

Notice: Undefined property: sfPropelData::$dbMap in /var/www/localhost/sedvan_mapa/plugins/sfPropelPlugin/lib/pr opel/addon/sfPropelData.class.php on line 80

There already is a ticket about this issue here: Unfortunatelly the proposed patch didn't solve the problem for me. I even applied it to both /usr/share/php/symfony/plugins/sfPropelPlugin/lib/propel/sfP ropelData.class.php (installed by PEAR) and /var/www/localhost/myproject/plugins/sfPropelPlugin/lib/prop el/addon/sfPropelData.class.php (installed by sfPropelPlugin1.3).

As both proposed solutions failed to me I using a more straight solution: loading my fixtures straight from SQL files like the one below:
INSERT INTO `pib` (`county_id`, `activity_id`, `past`, `present`, `future`) VALUES
(3100906, 10025, '40.00', '49.94', '111.66')

It's working but should it be like this?

I'm developping a site which has to be translated from french to english.

Here is my settings.yml file :

    i18n:					on
    standard_helpers:       [Partial, Cache, Form, I18N]

    cache:                  on
    web_debug:              on

I have a messages.en.xml in the i18n folder which is valid.

In my main layout.php, i have added somme translation calls, for instance :

<?php echo __('Présentation') ?>

It works just fine when i'm using the dev environment (site_dev.php). When i set the culture to en_US, the translation specified in my XLIFF file is displayed.

BUT when i use the prod environment, i've got a blank page (actually when i look at the HTML source, the code stops at the first __() call).

If i add manually the use_helper('I18N') in my layout file, the page is displayed but the translation doesn't work.

Can anyone help me ?
Thanks in advance Smile

I have a little validator-class:
class LoginValidator extends sfValidatorString {
    public function configure($options = array(), $messages = array()) {  
    public function doClean($value) {
        $query = new Doctrine_Query();
/** Query **/
        throw new sfValidatorError($this, 'wrong_user');

class LoginValidatorSchema extends sfValidatorSchema {
	public function __construct($options = array(), $messages = array()) {
								 	'name' => new LoginValidator(),
									'password' => new sfValidatorPass()), $options, $messages);

I can use this validator for one parameter, but how can I get the password-post-parameter to check login in the database?

I am getting this exception

Error populating Article object [wrapped: Unable to convert value at column 13 to timestamp: 0000-00-00 00:00:00]

From what I understand this was a bug in PHP 5.2.4 but is fixed now in Symfony/Creole. I do not receive this error on my development workstation, but I do on staging and production.

Development: Ubuntu 8.04, PHP 5.2.4, MySQL 5.0.51a, symfony 1.1.0
Staging: Ubuntu 8.04, PHP 5.2.4, MySQL 5.0.51a, symfony 1.1.0
Production: CentOS 4.6, PHP 5.2.5, MySQL 5.0.51a, symfony 1.1.0

Databases have same table types, columns, and collations.

If I change the MySQL DATETIME's to NULL default, everything is fine. However I do not understand why I receive no errors on development, but I do on similar setups. I would also rather avoid changing the defaults to NULL if I can avoid it.

I also understand this might not be an issue anymore in Propel 1.3, but we are still using 1.2 and would rather not switch at the moment.

Anyone have any ideas on how to easily implement server-side cascading dropdowns in the new Forms framework?

My initial thought was to do something similar to:
class MyForm extends sfForm
   static $make = array('Acura', 'Audi', 'BMW');

   static $model = array(
      'Acura' => array('Integra', 'RL', 'TL'),
      'Audi'  => array('A4', 'S4', 'A6'),
      'BMW'   => array('3 series', '5 series', '7 series')

   public function configure()
         'make' => new sfWidgetFormSelect(array('choices'=>$make)),
         'model' => new sfWidgetFormSelect(array('choices'=>$model[$this->getValue('make')]))

but this clearly won't work as configure is called before any tainted or cleaned values have been bound.

I realize I can (and probably should) do this in javascript, but from a rapid-prototyping point of view it would be nice to do this via the forms framework.

Any ideas would be much appreciated.

Hi guys, I'm looking for a way to get data in a .yml validation file for a form (old way with compat_10) from the template where I've some hidden input tags like name_field_1, name_field_2, name_field_3... numbered in a foreach loop.

How can I pass the number of the field to the validation file? Is it possible?

  post: [credits, bet_result_XXX]

    required:       true
    required_msg:   The credit field cannot be left blank
    validators:     creditsValidator
    required:       true
    required_msg:   You must select a result
    validators:     creditsValidator

Thanks in advance

how can I change the class attribute of an auto generated select menue?

I have a database table named "user" that contains a datetime column. After I executed "symfony propel:build-forms" and "symfony propel:generate-crud" the UserForm.class.php contains an emtpy configure() method.

When I open a browser to edit an entry, 5 dropdown menues are displayed for this datetime column.

I could not find a solution how to set an alternate class name for the auto generated selects. By default, the dropdowns are too small and I'd like to change their widths via CSS.

When I try
$this->widgetSchema['username']->setAttributes(array('class' => 'foobar'));
for a text type input field everything works fine.

$this->widgetSchema['registered_at']->setAttributes(array('class' => 'foobar'));
does not work.

Please help.

Hello Everyone

I want use the sfWidgetFormSelect. I wrote in my configure method:

$choices = ArticlePeer::getClientArticles(sfContext::getInstance()->getUser()->getAttribute('clientID'));
$this->widgetSchema['sub_article_id']->setOption('choices', $choices); 	

And this one is my peer function:

public static function getClientArticles(){
  $c	= new Criteria();
$c->add(ArticlePeer::CLIENT_ID,sfContext::getInstance()->getUser()- >getAttribute('clientID'));
  return ArticlePeer::doSelect($c);

So i return not a criteria, i return objects. In SF 1.0 i use objects in sf 1.1 i need to return a criteria.

Is there a way to use objects for my sfWidgetFormSelect ? Because I can edit my hole object_select_tag's.

I try many times to call doctrine:build-schema in my interbase 6.0 database but always got errors. So i get the root of the problem in connecting to Interbase via Doctrine and modified some line in /plugins/sfDoctrinePlugin/lib/doctrine/Doctrine/Connection.p hp on line 458 to put the default user and pass if the base was an Interbase/Firebird (i think it was some hard way and is not a solution, but i was research where are the error) so i put above line 458:

if (strtolower($e[0]) == 'firebird') {
  $this->options['username'] = !$this->options['username'] ? 'SYSDBA' : $this->options['username'];
  $this->options['password'] = !$this->options['password'] ? 'masterkey' : $this->options['password'];

Now i am getting the following error when try to run doctrine:build-schema:

SQLSTATE[HY000]: General error: -104 Dynamic SQL Error SQL error code = -104 Token unknown - line 1, char 4 NAMES

I need some help to get my Symfony app work with Interbase 6.0 and Doctrine (or if someone has another ORM i will be happy).

I'm finally getting around to finishing my 1.0->1.1 upgrade (or 1.1.1, to be precise). One of the first things I ran into was a failure in a custom generator on sfConfigCache->getInstance(). Changing this to sfContext::getInstance()->getConfigCache() seems to have worked.

Is this correct? If so, is this just a bug in the UPGRADE file, i.e. should sfConfigCache be added to the list of objects that are no longer singletons (in the section titled Singletons)?

Help me!

Use Symfony 1.1.2DEV
Propel 1.3

I have schema:
    id :            ~
    name:           { type: varchar, size: 255, required: true, index: unique }
    description:    { type: longvarchar }
    created_at:     ~
    id:             ~
    catalog_id:     { type: integer, primaryKey: true, required: true, foreignTable: catalog, foreignReference: id, onUpdate: cascade }
    title:          { type: varchar, size: 128 }
    price:          { type: integer }
    created_at:     ~

How I can update foreign key catalog_id. Example:

$product = CatalogProductPeer::retrieveByPK(1, 2);
echo $product->getCatalogId(); // print 2


I don't see any changes

MySQL general log:
UPDATE catalog_product SET `CATALOG_ID`=3 WHERE catalog_product.ID=1 AND catalog_product.CATALOG_ID=3

catalog_product.CATALOG_ID=3 - why new CATALOG_ID

I want to see that:
UPDATE catalog_product SET `CATALOG_ID`=3 WHERE catalog_product.ID=1 AND catalog_product.CATALOG_ID=2

Hello everybody,

As the admin generator uses symfony 1.0 validation system, i wonder if it would be better not to use it.

In another way, what is the difference between : init-admin on one side and builds-form + generate-crud on the other side ?

thanks by advance for response

I've build a filter which sets the title of the page.
but it doesn't work correct...


class seitentitelFilter extends sfFilter
  public function execute($filterChain)

    $response = $this->getContext()->getResponse();
    # $response->setTitle('IT WORKS!');
    // Nothing to do before the action

    $items = isicsBreadcrumbs::getInstance()->getItems();

    $response->setTitle( 'test'. $items[count($items)-1]->getText() );


The $items array is after the ->execute() correct, but after that the $response->setTitle( doesn't work, what goes wrong at my code?

I read some data from the database and wrote it to $this->content[] array. I set escaping to on:

escaping_strategy: on
escaping_method: ESC_SPECIALCHARS

How can I enable nl2br for this $content array in view without setting escaping_strategy to off?

$query = Doctrine_Query::create();
		$content = $query->from('phpbb_posts_text')->where('post_id = ?', $topic->getTopic_First_Post_Id())->execute();
		if($content->count() == 0) continue;
		$this->news[] = array(
							"title" => $topic->getTopic_Title(),
							"date" => $content[0]->phpbb_posts->getPost_Time(),
							"content" => ((strlen($content[0]->getPost_Text()) > sfConfig::get('app_news_short')) ? nl2br(substr($content[0]->getPost_Text(), 0, sfConfig::get('app_news_short')).'...') : nl2br($content[0]->getPost_Text()))

<?php foreach($news AS $entry): ?>
<h1><?php echo $entry['title']; ?></h1>
<p><?php echo strftime('%d. %B %Y', $entry['date']); ?></p>
<p><?php echo $entry['content']; ?></p>
<?php endforeach; ?>

Hello everybody,

Using the admin generator, I have some issues when including a custom field defined in a partial - i'm base on the example of the admin generator tutorial.

Here is my /modules/article/config/generator.yml

      display: [id, title, content, created_at, _testPartial]

in /modules/article/templates/_test_partial.php
<?php echo textarea_tag('fieltest','') ?>

in /modules/article/validate/edit.yml
methods:  [post]
      msg: ...
      msg: ...
      msg: ...

When editing an article, i have an 'undefined index': article{fieldtest} notice.

is someone has an idea of the problem ?

ps: if i change my edit.yml to :
    - "article{title}"
    - "article{content}"
    - "article{fieldtest}"

then, i have an sfParseException : "unregistered parent 'article' or subname'title'".

thanks by advance for any response

Hi all!

I'm trying out the new form handling in 1.1 and i came upon a problem.
Let's say we have a page with two selects/dropdown boxes. The second one is sometimes required and sometimes not, it depends on which value we selected in the first select. In this example subcategory_id depends on the value selected in "category_id".

the template:
        <th><label for="item_category_id">Category</label></th>
          <?php echo $form['category_id']->renderError() ?>
          <?php echo $form['category_id'] ?>
        <th><label for="item_subcategory_id">Subcategory id</label></th>
          <?php echo $form['subcategory_id']->renderError() ?>
          <?php echo $form['subcategory_id'] ?>

This is from the form validation class (setup method):
      'category_id'    => new sfWidgetFormPropelSelect(array('model' => 'Category', 'add_empty' => 'Choose category here')),
      'subcategory_id' => new sfWidgetFormPropelSelect(array('model' => 'SubCategory', 'add_empty' => 'Choose subcategory here')),
      'category_id'    => new sfValidatorPropelChoice(array('model' => 'Category', 'column' => 'id', 'required' => true)),
      'subcategory_id' => new sfValidatorPropelChoice(array('model' => 'SubCategory', 'column' => 'id', 'required' => false)),      

Let's say i want to pass the subcategory if the value of category is "2", otherwise not.. How can i achieve that?

I have an application made in symfony 1.1.

Sometimes when i run symfony cache:clear the application displays only blank screen.

In the log of symfony does not appear anything, nor in the log of apache.

This problem also occurs on the site, it was rewritten using symfony, always occurs blank screen.

Is this is a bug in symfony?

Yesterday I've got the exception exception
'sfRenderException' with message 'The template "indexSuccess.txt.php" does not exist or is unreadable in "".' in /home/chefs/tips/cache/frontend/prod/config/config_core_compile.yml.php:2193

but somehow it solved itself.

Today I got this
'sfRenderException' with message 'The template "widgetSuccess.xml.php" does not exist or is unreadable in "".' in /home/chefs/tips/cache/frontend/prod/config/config_core_compile.yml.php:2193

The code was unmodified and I don;t know how these exceptions appears. I do have the indexSuccess.php and the widgetSuccess.php templates, but don't know how the renderer came with .txt.php or .xml.php extensions.

Any ideas of what could be?

In my form i have field which is personal id number of person in my country, it is possible to validate that value of this ID because each digit mean something for example if 6-th digit is 1 person is a woman, and last digit is control digit. In symfony 1.0 i had custom validator file with function which validate it perfectly. But how can I use custom Validator(and how to create) in symfony 1.1? Anybody had that problem too?

Hello all,

currently I am developing my first project with symfony and I am really confident with the whole framework. Great work. As it is always with first projects, I stumble across some problems, that might be quite easy to more experienced people.

My first question here is: Is it possible to work with the I18N features within helper functions? I wrote a 'stupid' helper that translates boolean values from the DB into words like 'Yes' or 'No'. Now I would like to use this helper with translation, so that the lingual representation of the String will automatically be translated according to the users culture.

I tried with
and the value gets collected into the translation XML, but is never displayed in a translated version. Now I am wondering, if I also have to pass the users culture to that helper, every time I call it?

Any other ideas?

Thanks and regards,

in my project I have a problem with the form. I have a table sobis_klient and this is fragment of my schema.yml:
    _attributes:       { phpName: Klient, idMethod: native }
    id:                { type: integer, required: true, primaryKey: true, autoIncrement: true }
    nazwa:             { type: varchar(50), required: true, index: true }
    stripped_nazwa:    { type: varchar(80), index: true , unique: true }

After reading the two documents: Symfony Forms in Action(v1.1) and The Askeet Tutorial (v1.0) I tried to create
in the field 'stripped_nazwa' an alternate version of the nazwa field, just like in askeet aplication (stripped_title).
I did a new class myTools.class.php under the application/lib/ directory:

class myTools
  public static function 
$text strtolower($text);
// strip all non word chars
$text preg_replace('/\W/'' '$text);
// replace all white space sections with a dash
$text preg_replace('/\ +/''-'$text);
// trim dashes
$text preg_replace('/\-$/'''$text);
$text preg_replace('/^\-/'''$text);

and new function in application/lib/model/Klient.php:

public function setNazwa($v)

everything is working okay when I use the command:
$ ./symfony propel:data-load frontend (from /data/fixtures/dane.yml),

but when i use CRUD Generator command:
$ ./symfony propel:build-forms
$ ./symfony propel:generate-crud frontend klient Klient 

and write/save data with the form it doesn't upadate my field stripped_nazwa Sad
Thank you for any answers!

I created the /web/video directory in which I put videos and I want to make a link to a video from a template.

Currently I use this code :
var so = new SWFObject("/../videos/<?=$fonction->getFctUrlvideo() ?>", "csSWF", "640", "498");

It works fine for a local use, but not on a server (OVH).
I think this issue is due to the URL to access my website : so it must call the URL when I want to call

Have I to use a method like url_for ? Do you have an idea ?

I think it is possible as the images, css or js directories are defined somewhere...

Thanks by advance,

Let's suppose that I have this generator.yml

    model_class:      Usuario
    theme:            default
        display: [ **I want all my fields here**, _partial]

As you see I have many fields, and some partials. because I have many fields I don't want to write them always, so how can I tell symfony that display all the fields (as the default way) AND then I can write my partials.

Thanks in advance.

I have created 4 validators that I need to execute on my form. (They're all needed for a reason). However, I would only like to execute them in a precise order, and only if the previous one is successful.

For example:

Validate phone number with database... success
Validate another value with 3rd party service... FAIL
Validate another value with 3rd party service... FAIL
Validate another value with 3rd party service... FAIL

So, in this case, the second validator failed. I would like to display that error message, but none of the error messages after that failure (as they actually all depend on the previous validator). At the moment, if all 4 post-validators fail, all 4 errors are displayed, which is not what I would like.

Also, each validator needs a different 'invalid' message.

Thanks for the help!
