FormFile

The FormFile view helper can be used to render an <input type="file"> form input. It is meant to work with the File element.

Basic usage

use Zend\Form\Element;

$element = new Element\File('my-file');

// Within your view...

echo $this->formFile($element);
// Result: <input type="file" name="my-file">

For HTML5 multiple file uploads, the multiple attribute can be used. Browsers that do not support HTML5 will default to a single upload input.

use Zend\Form\Element;

$element = new Element\File('my-file');
$element->setAttribute('multiple', true);

// Within your view...

echo $this->formFile($element);
// Result: <input type="file" name="my-file" multiple="multiple">
