This class can be used to generate HTML forms, based on table schema automaically deterimend from a database table. The HTML can be customised.

It retrieves the list of fields of a given MySQL database table. Then it generates HTML forms for entering values of records of that table.

The table primary key field can be automatically omitted from the output.

The generated forms may be populated with default values when the forms are generated in edit mode.

An XML configuration file can be used to define how to map the table fields into form inputs. The configuration file can also be used to add, remove or customise form sections.

The generated forms can be returned as a string or saved to a file.

::FormTableGenerator:: Michael J. Burgess Generate user-submission forms aligned with a html table by simply suppling a database link and a table name. Generate forms to 'add' or 'edit' data (forms have no php-based submission code associated) choosing 'edit' populates fields with php-variable default values. The primary key can be automatically removed from the output. Database field types e.g. varchar, are mapped in an xml config file, to html form fields. You can add, customise or remove any section of the html generated from within the xml file. Author-written documentation regarding configuration and use is supplied. The class either generates a string or saves to a file. There are also many more possibilities accesible via configuration of the xml file. Examples provided. Test script provided. Read Manual before use as default values may not suite your database.
