Use loose coupled layout to display all our JForms

Use loose coupled layout to display all our JForms

5 years 9 months ago #840 by Walt Sorensen

With Joomla 1.6+ we should strive for a more loosely coupled layout to display all our JForms

Here is a tutorial on how this can be done, so that the view iterates the JForm XML fields and fieldsets rather than needing to specify every field.

Here is an example Joomla 2.5+ component that includes this decoupled xml form and view layout

Why this is important? By using this loosely coupled layout we can modify our JForm XML without the need to mess around with our layouts.

Looking more at the JForm documentation a simpler method would be to use  renderFieldset  () which will render each field set in your form.
