symfony-forms Forms Deal with form events


Example

To be able do deal with form events, it's important to attach the request, that is send to a controller action after submitting a form, to the form created in that action.

public function registerAction(Request $request)
{
    $data = new ExampleObject();
    $form = $this->createForm(ExampleObjectType::class, $data);

    $form->handleRequest($request);
    if($form->isSubmitted() && $form->isValid()){
        // do something with form data
        return $this->redirectToRoute('route_name');
    }
    return $this->render('view.html.twig', array(
        'form' => $form->createView()
    ));
}

The request variable passed to the action is of type Symfony\Component\HttpFoundation\Request
