A week of symfony #19 (08->14 may 2006)

Development highlights

r1365: added a new param type to include_partial() calls in admin generator

In the admin generator, if you want to override the generated HTML for a column, you can create a partial:


  display: [id, name, _rating]


echo image_tag('/images/rating/'.$movie->getRating().'.png');

But this didn't work if you wanted to override the column for the list AND the edit AND the filters. You can now do something like that:


  display: [id, name, _rating]

  display: [id, name, _rating]



if ($type == 'list')
  $options = array(
    0 => 'awful',
    1 => 'excellent',

  echo select_tag('movie[rating]', options_for_select($options, $movie->getRating()));
  echo image_tag('/images/rating/'.$movie->getRating().'.png');

The $type variable contains list, edit or filter.

r1363: added sql queries to the web debug toolbar

r1360: added predefined categories support in sfFileValidator

In a validate.yml configuration file,

  class: sfFileValidator
    mime_types:       @web_images
    mime_types_error: Please, upload a web image

is now equivalent to

  class: sfFileValidator
      - 'image/jpeg'
      - 'image/pjpeg'
      - 'image/png'
      - 'image/x-png'
      - 'image/gif'
    mime_types_error: Please, upload a web image

r1352: new web debug toolbar

The web debug toolbar does not need prototype anymore, takes less space on the screen and give more information.

r1340: added partial support for custom filters in admin generator

  filters: [date, _state]

<?php echo select_tag('filters[state]', options_for_select(array(
  '' => '',
  'open' => 'open',
  'closed' => 'closed',
), isset($filters['state']) ? $filters['state'] : '')) ?>

r1339: added default sorting option to admin generator

  sort: date     # equivalent to sort: [date, asc]

  sort: [date, desc]

r1338: added position option to stylesheets configured in view.yml

stylesheets: [default: { position: first }, admin]

r1331: new absolute option to image_tag() and support for absolute HTTPS urls in image_tag() and link_to()

image_tag('logo', 'absolute=true');
link_to('symfony', '/documentation/index', array('absolute' => true));

They talked about us

Help the Symfony project!

As with any Open-Source project, contributing code or documentation is the most common way to help, but we also have a wide range of sponsoring opportunities.


I really like the new web debug toolbar...
The new web debug toolbar is really great. I like to have the list of global variables, php config etc. Really cool!
In this blog entry, some of the PHP code examples are not displaying properly (cf with the docs in r1342:

filters: [date, _state]

'open' =&gt; 'open',
'closed' =&gt; 'closed',
), isset($filters['state']) ? $filters['state'] : '')) ?&gt;
matt_m: thanks, we got it fixed.
