Snippet: Symfony Forms - Setting the Form Formatter

By default Symfony displays forms in tables, with each new input being a table row. If you want to display your forms more semantically with fieldsets and lists, Symfony has a list formatter built in. You can tell an individual form to display as a list using the code below.

  < ?php
    // lib/form/MyModelForm.class.php
    public function configure() {

You can also create your own custom formatters. For detailed examples of how to do this see the following tutorials:

A Note on Snippets: When using frameworks such as Symfony it is often the simplest pieces of code which are the hardest to either find or remember.
