This is the config array for clonefish which generates the form you've just seen. How can you use such an array?


= Array(

'inputfile1' => Array(
'type'           => 'inputFile',
'displayname'    => 'inputFile',

'inputfile2' => Array(
'type'           => 'inputFile',
'displayname'    => 'inputFile<br>with a link (href setting)',
'href'           => BASE_URI 'files/inputfile.png',

'inputfile3' => Array(
'type'        => 'inputFile',
'displayname' => 'inputFile<br>with thumbnail,<br> href and a delete button',
'href'        => BASE_URI 'files/inputfile.png',
'thumbnail'   => BASE_URI 'files/inputfile_thumb.png',
'delete'      => 'somescript.php?target=delete&filename=inputfile_thumb.png'


usage example

To create a form using this array you'll only need a few lines of code:


// create the form object
$clonefish = new clonefish'loginform''test.php''POST' );

// setup codepage so your data will be handled
// perfectly by the appropriate string functions
$clonefish->codepage         'utf-8';
$clonefish->multibytesupport 'multibyteutf8';

// add the form elements (fields) pre-filled with
// values from $_POST
$clonefish->addElements$config$_POSTget_magic_quotes_gpc() );

// validate the form if the form has been submitted
if ( count$_POST ) && $clonefish->validate() ) {
// form is valid, go and store values in database, etc.
  // $clonefish->getElementValues() provides a 
  // normalized value array.
// if the form wasn't submitted yet or the validation
  // had failed, show the form (automatically
  // including error messages)
$clonefish->getHTML() .


But there's so much more than just displaying the form - be sure to read the
reference pages and the introduction!
