Class Summary HTML_QuickForm_group

Class Summary HTML_QuickForm_group -- HTML class for a form element group


Groups allow you to combine several individual elements into one entity and to use it as usual form element. Most of the group's methods use the methods of the grouped elements to do their job. For example, groups do not have values themselves, their setValue() and getValue() methods just call the appropriate methods of grouped elements to set and get their values.

Groups can be used both for visual grouping of the elements (e.g. putting "Submit" and "Reset" buttons on one line), grouping of the elements with the same name (e.g. groups of checkboxes and radiobuttons) and logical grouping of the elements (e.g. group for person's name consisting of two text fields for first and last name).
