DB DataObject FormBuilder
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
DB_DataObject_FormBuilder is a package in PEAR which creates forms for insertion and editing of data in a database. Its default output is in HTML, but it can also be used for other output formats (GTK+, XUL, etc).
The type of the field in the database is automatically checked and a form element created which is correct for that type. For example, a text field gets a text box. A long text field gets a textarea. Number fields can only have number entered. Links (Foreign Keys) have a select box of option.
In addition, there are many more complicated types of fields that are supported, such as many-many links and many-many-many links. There are also many configuration options.
