View Helpers

In This Article


The FormInput view helper is used to render an <input> HTML form input tag. It acts as a base class for all of the specifically typed form input helpers (FormText, FormCheckbox, FormSubmit, etc.), and is not suggested for direct use.

It contains a general map of valid tag attributes and types for attribute filtering. Each subclass of FormInput implements its own specific map of valid tag attributes.

Public methods

The following public methods are in addition to those inherited from the AbstractHelper:

Method signature Description
render(ElementInterface $element) : string Renders the <input> tag for the $element.
