  • ObjectHelper:

Helpers in this file have no equivalent in symfony 1.1 as it does not make sense. You can use Propel Form to achieve the same goal.

object_admin_double_list To be done
object_admin_select_list To be done
object_admin_check_list To be done
  • sfRichTextEditor

The 2 rich text editors (TinyMCE and FCK) have no equivalent in symfony 1.1. This needs to be done.

  • ValidationHelper:
1.0 1.1
form_has_error sfForm (various methods)
form_error sfForm (various methods)

JavaScript helpers

All helpers in JavascriptHelper are deprecated and they won't have equivalent in symfony 1.1.

symfony 1.2 won't have Prototype/ included as we want to give the user the choice of their JavaScript library. Also, we think that JavaScript have to be written in JavaScript, and as such, there won't be any official port of these helpers in the future.

Miscellaneous helpers

The helpers in TextHelper are deprecated and won't have equivalent in symfony 1.1. We think they don't belong to the core framework.

The helpers in NumberHelper need to be ported to symfony 1.1.
