    Is it possible to render a dynamic form using actions.yml ?

    The first field “backupHost” rely to a ManyToMany association, The related entities are correctly display. Then I would like to have another field depend on the previous host selected.

    Dynamic form field are already difficult to handle in regular way, but in this case of yaml declaration I don’t know how to proceed or even if it is possible.

    Hi adriwan_kenoby,

    Actually the solution will be the same as with well known php forms.
    First you should use single Symfony form type for entire form that contains all the dynamic fields.

    Now it’s just a regular form.

    So a usual write all the dynamic logic at form type event listers.

    If you don’t have an entity or another model representing the whole form you can create DTO for that purpose and map form to it with “data_class” option.

    I didn’t find the example at ORO packages with actions.yml, but here it from the workflows for editing RFQ at OroCommerce, it’s very similar:
    The only difference, you’ll probably will have a DTO for it, for example of a form mapped to DTO you can check below links:
    DTO – https://github.com/oroinc/platform/blob/2.6.1/src/Oro/Bundle/ImapBundle/Form/Model/AccountTypeModel.php
    FormType for it – https://github.com/oroinc/platform/blob/2.6.1/src/Oro/Bundle/ImapBundle/Form/Type/ChoiceAccountType.php#L119



    Hi Anyt,

    If I “use single Symfony form type for entire form that contains all the dynamic fields.”

    How then can I use it in actions.yml ?

    Thank you Anyt I will work on that. Still in need of comprehension of the Oro technologie stack chaplin + backbone + underscore…

    You can check series of JS master class available in our youtube channel to understand it better



    I come back to you because I try to do what I want based on the examples, but I can’t do it.

    To resume, I have an operation define in actions.yml

    the template associated with

    And the form type, here I don’t quite understand what I do in events…

    The JS component and view

    A function in a controller to render the form to be replaced

    and his template

    I am not sure if I need all this logic, maybe a JS view should be enough to satisfy my needs.
    And the problem is that their is still nothing dynamic in my form.

    Could you point me what I am doing wrong ?

    Thanks for your time and your help.

    Hello, adriwan_kenoby!

    Did you debug your code? Maybe you have some errors?
    First, check your ajax action, when you create a form, you need to pass the model as a second parameter, not the array.
    In addition, I suggest checking the correctness of loading js. Is the ajax action performed when the host changes?



    The ajax actions is not performed. No error, nothing to help me to understand what is going wrong.



    Finally achieved. A dynamic form displaying the content of a specific folder depending on selected server
