Form Types Reference

2.8To denote the form type, you have to use the fully qualified class name - like TextType::class in PHP 5.5+ or Symfony\Component\Form\Extension\Core\Type\TextType. Before Symfony 2.8, you could use an alias for each type like text or date. The old alias syntax will still work until Symfony 3.0. For more details, see the 2.8 UPGRADE Log.

A form is composed of fields, each of which are built with the help of a field type (e.g. TextType, ChoiceType, etc). Symfony comes standard with a large list of field types that can be used in your application.
