Tutorial Notes

In this tutorial we add common elements to our Module view template such as forms and inputs (text, textarea & select). We then connect these elements with our controller.

Controller File
  • Loading language strings for the view template file.
  • Explanation of form actions including posting data back to the controller.
Language File
  • Adding additional entries to your language file.
View Templates
  • Creating a HTML form.
  • Adding labels to your form.
  • Adding inputs to your form.
  • Display PHP variables as placeholders in inputs.
  • Form element naming conventions.
After completing this tutorial you will have a working form to collect input for your module. You will understand the importance of labels, input names and placeholders and how they are connected through the controller to your language file.
