public buildForm(FormBuilderInterface $builder, array $options)

Parameters

FormBuilderInterface $builder The form builder
array $options The options

at line 31
public buildView(FormView $view, FormInterface $form, array $options)

Builds the form view.

This method is called for each type in the hierarchy starting form the top most type. Type extensions can further modify the view.

A view of a form is built before the views of the child forms are built. This means that you cannot access child views in this method. If you need to do so, move your logic to {@link finishView()} instead.

Parameters

FormView $view The view
FormInterface $form The form
array $options The options

at line 38
public finishView(FormView $view, FormInterface $form, array $options)

Finishes the form view.

This method gets called for each type in the hierarchy starting form the top most type. Type extensions can further modify the view.

When this method is called, views of the form's children have already been built and finished and can be accessed. You should only implement such logic in this method that actually accesses child views. For everything else you are recommended to implement {@link buildView()} instead.

Parameters

FormView $view The view
FormInterface $form The form
array $options The options

at line 45
public setDefaultOptions(OptionsResolverInterface $resolver)

Sets the default options for this type.

Parameters

OptionsResolverInterface $resolver The resolver for the options.

at line 52
public string|null|FormTypeInterface getParent()

Returns the name of the parent type.

You can also return a type instance from this method, although doing so is discouraged because it leads to a performance penalty. The support for returning type instances may be dropped from future releases.

Return Value

string|null|FormTypeInterface The name of the parent type if any, null otherwise.
