View Helpers

In This Article


The FormMonthSelect view helper renders two select elements, one with a list of months, another with a list of years. It works in conjection with the MonthSelect element, which provides the data for the selects, as well as validation around input provided by them.

Basic usage

use Zend\Form\Element;

$monthYear = new Element\MonthSelect('monthyear');
$monthYear->setLabel('Select a month and a year');

// Within your view...

echo $this->formMonthSelect($monthYear);
// Result:
// <select name="monthyear[month]"> ... </select>
// <select name="monthyear[year]"> ... </select>
