The sfFormExtraPlugin packages useful validators, widgets, and forms.

This collection holds validators, widgets, and forms which we don't want to include with the main symfony package because they are too specific or have external dependencies.


  • Install the plugin

    $ symfony plugin:install sfFormExtraPlugin
  • Clear the cache

    $ symfony cache:clear


All classes have full API and usage documentation. The best way to learn each widget or validator is to read the API.

You will also find some articles on the symfony blog about this plugin:


  • sfFormLanguage: A form to change the symfony user culture


  • sfValidatorDoctrineNestedSetLevel: Checks wether or not the max level of a nested set object (nestedSet behavior) is achieved
  • sfValidatorReCaptcha: Validates a ReCaptcha (see sfWidgetFormReCaptcha)
  • sfValidatorBlacklist: Validates that a value is not one of the configured forbidden ones
  • sfValidatorSchemaTimeInterval: Validates a time interval between two dates provided by a widget schema


  • sfWidgetFormReCaptcha: Displays a ReCaptcha widget (see sfValidatorReCaptcha)
  • sfWidgetFormSelectDoubleList: Displays a double list widget
  • sfWidgetFormJQueryDate: Displays a date using JQuery UI
  • sfWidgetFormJQueryAutocompleter: Displays an input tag with autocomplete support using JQuery
  • sfWidgetFormPropelChoiceGrouped: Displays a grouped set of choices tied to a Propel model
  • sfWidgetFormPropelJQueryAutocompleter: Displays an autocomplete widget tied to a Propel model
  • sfWidgetFormTextareaTinyMCE: A rich textarea rendered with TinyMCE
  • sfWidgetFormSelectUSState: A select menu of US states

As no third party libraries is bundled in the plugin, you need to install and load the required dependencies like JQuery, JQuery UI, or TinyMCE by yourself.
