Have you ever used Zend Form, created a submit button, and had a few extra tags that were just throwing you off? I know you have… You probably did it like me:
$this->addElement('submit', 'submitbutton', array( 'ignore'=>true, 'label'=>'Submit This', ));
But, you’ll notice you have both a
dt and a
dd from the standard view helpers of
HtmlTag. But, the
dt usually contains the label attribute. In this case, the label element is part of the input now. It stead of being silly and using CSS to hide that empty
dt, let’s just get rid of it… add the following to your code:
$element = $this->getElement('submitbutton'); $element->setDecorators( array( 'ViewHelper', array('HtmlTag', array('tag'=>'dd', 'id'=>$element->getName() . '-element')) ) );
Simply, get the submit button you just added (you could technically add this in your definition of your initial element too…). Then, reset the decorators to be the
ViewHelper and the
HtmlTag. However, only define the
dd tag instead of the full
dt suite. Finally, set the id to the element’s name plus
-element like the standard view does.
Good to go!
