FlexModel integration for Symfony.

Installation using Composer

Run the following command to add the package to the composer.json of your project:

$ composer require flexmodel/flexmodel-bundle

Enable the bundle

Enable the bundle in the kernel:

// app/AppKernel.php

public function registerBundles()
    $bundles = array(
        // ...
        new FlexModel\FlexModelBundle\FlexModelBundle(),
        // ...

Configure the bundle

Add the following configuration to your config.yml file:

# app/config/config.yml

    bundle_name: AppBundle # optional, defaults to 'AppBundle'
    resource: "%kernel.root_dir%/../src/AppBundle/Resources/config/flexmodel.xml"

The resource should refer to the location of your FlexModel configuration file.


Generating Doctrine ORM mapping

Run the following command to generate Doctrine ORM mapping and entity classes from your FlexModel configuration:

$ php bin/console flexmodel:generate

After generating the Doctrine ORM mapping you need to update your database schema:

$ php bin/console doctrine:schema:update --force

Creating a Form

To create a form from a FlexModel form configuration you need to use the FlexModelFormType class.

The class will retrieve the form configuration based on the name of the entity and provided 'form_name' option.

// src/AppBundle/Controller/DefaultController.php

public function newAction()
    $entity = ...;
    $form = $this->createForm(FlexModelFormType::class, $entity, array(
        'form_name' => '',

For more information on creating forms, please see the Symfony documentation.

File uploads

The FlexModelBundle provides support for file uploads within FlexModel forms.

To activate this support you need to complete the following steps:

1. Configure the FlexModelBundle for file uploads

The bundle requires a location to store the file uploads. Configure the location with the existing FlexModelBundle configuration in your config.yml file:

# app/config/config.yml

    resource: "%kernel.root_dir%/../src/AppBundle/Resources/config/flexmodel.xml"
    file_upload_path: "%kernel.root_dir%/../../some-directory-outside-of-the-project/%kernel.environment%"

2. Modify your Doctrine entity class

To activate file uploads for a Doctrine entity you need to implement the UploadObjectInterface and add getters and setters for the form fields.

For ease of use the FlexModelBundle provides an UploadTrait to implement both the interface and the getters and setters:

namespace AppBundle\Entity;

use FlexModel\FlexModelBundle\Model\UploadObjectInterface;
use FlexModel\FlexModelBundle\Model\UploadTrait;

class Entity implements UploadObjectInterface
    use UploadTrait {
        getFileUpload as getImageUpload;
        setFileUpload as setImageUpload;
        getFileUpload as getAnotherImageUpload;
        setFileUpload as setAnotherImageUpload;

In the above example you see the UploadTrait with getters and setters for two file upload fields implemented. Here the getImageUpload method maps to a FlexModel field called 'image' and getAnotherImageUpload maps to 'another_image'.
