MelisCmsSlider Services

MelisCmsSlider provides many services to be used in other modules:

  • MelisCmsNewsService
    Services to retrieve lists of sliders, slider details and save sliders
    File: /melis-cms-slider/src/Service/MelisCmsSliderService.php
// Get the service
$sliderService = $this->getServiceManager()->get('MelisCmsSliderService');
// Get slider by id
$data = $sliderService->getSlider($sliderId);

MelisSlider Forms

Forms factories

All Melis CMS Slider forms are built using Form Factories.
All form configuration are available in the file: /melis-cms-slider/config/app.forms.php
Any module can override or add items in this form by building the keys in an array and marge it in the Module.php config creation part.

return array(
	'plugins' => array(

		// MelisCmsNews array
		'MelisCmsSlider' => array(

			// Form key
			'forms' => array(

				// MelisCmsNews Properties form
				'MelisTechnologySlider_details_form' => array(
					'attributes' => array(
						'name' => 'sliderDetailsForm',
						'id' => 'sliderDetailsForm',
						'enctype' => "multipart/form-data",
						'method' => 'POST',
						'action' => '',
					'hydrator'  => 'Laminas\Hydrator\ArraySerializableHydrator',
					'elements' => array(
							'spec' => array(
					'input_filter' => array(
						'mcsdetail_id' => array(

Forms elements

MelisCmsSlider provides form elements to be used in forms:

  • CmsSliderSelect: a dropdown to select a slider

Listening to services and update behavior with custom code

Most services trigger events so that the behavior can be modified.

public function attach(EventManagerInterface $events)
    $sharedEvents      = $events->getSharedManager();

	$callBackHandler = $sharedEvents->attach(

			$sm = $e->getTarget()->getEvent()->getApplication()->getServiceManager()
			$sm = $e->getTarget()->getEvent()->getApplication()->getServiceManager()
    		$params = $e->getParams();

    		// Custom code here


    $this->listeners[] = $callBackHandler;
