Is there a way to pass $file to a Phalcon\Forms\Form object? Or another practice to check if validity of a form that contains both files and text? , AFAIK, there is no built in method in Phalcon to validate a file upload via a form. You need to write some custom code for this.

To validate Files you must use the FileValidator Class as this example:

$file = new FileValidator([
   'maxSize' => '10M',
   'messageSize' => _('Your file is huge. Max allowed is 10 Mb'),
   'allowedTypes' => ["image/jpeg", "image/png"],
   'messageType' => _('File type is not permitted. Try with JPG, GIF, etc..'),
   'messageEmpty' => _('Cannot be empty. Please upload a file')

$this - > validator - > add('filesInputName', $file);
$messages = $this - > validator - > validate($_FILES);

We can also use a PHP class as an entity:,Check if the element from the data exists (with the same name) in the entity,Loop through the passed data,Returns the current element in the iterator

< ? php

use Phalcon\ Forms\ Form;
use Phalcon\ Forms\ Element\ Text;
use Phalcon\ Forms\ Element\ Select;

$form = new Form();

$form - > add(
   new Text(

$form - > add(
   new Text(

$form - > add(
   new Select(
         1 => 'Home',
         2 => 'Work',
         3 => 'Mobile',

 function testFormValidatorEntityBindSetters() {
    //Second element
    $address = new Text('address');
    $address - > addValidator(new PresenceOf(array('message' => 'The address is required')));
    $telephone = new Text("telephone");
    $telephone - > addValidator(new PresenceOf(array('message' => 'The telephone is required')));
    $entity = new ContactFormSettersGetters();
    $form = new Form();
    $form - > add($address);
    $form - > add($telephone);
    $form - > bind(array('telephone' => '+44 123 45678', 'address' => 'hello'), $entity);
    $this - > assertTrue($form - > isValid());
    $this - > assertEquals($entity - > getTelephone(), '+44 123 45678');
    $this - > assertEquals($entity - > getAddress(), 'hello');

Step 1 − Phalcon installation is completely dependent on dll file. DLL (Dynamic Link Library) creates the required package and plugins for Phalcon.,The following link is used for downloading dll file −,Step 5 − After downloading the package, set the path variable in the system properties.,Step 2 − Download the required dll file. Check for the appropriate configuration of the system and download the required dll file. After downloading the file, extract phalcon-php.dll to /php/ext in the xampp folder.

Step 7 − Once this necessary output is received, create a project using the following command −

phalcon create-project <project-name>

Alternatively, you can enable Phalcon module in suite configuration file and run,Does not load the response into the module so you can’t interact with response page (click, fill forms). To load arbitrary page for interaction, use _loadPage method.,This module provides integration with Phalcon framework (3.x). Please try it and leave your feedback.,Opens a page with arbitrary request parameters. Useful for testing multi-step forms on a specific step.

composer require--dev codeception / module - phalcon

If there is form with enctype multipart/form-data and file input, method hasFiles() need to return TRUE then files is upload and FALSE then else. But method hasFiles() always return TRUE then form has enctype.,@KlassT The method hasFiles by default detects if the form submit contains files or not. Even if you have not uploaded a file, the request comes with an empty file information array so the validation is to true (check $_FILES for example).,If you want to check whether the request actually comes with a file or not then you must pass a parameter TRUE to that method:, Have a question about this project?
