On the NetTuts.com site today there's a new tutorial from Sahan Lakshitha about creating forms in FuelPHP, the PHP 5.3-centric framework.

Thanks to FuelPHP's fieldset class, working with forms couldn't be easier. With a few lines of code, you can easily generate and validate a form. Today, we're going to learn how to do just that!

He starts with guiding you through a simple install of the FuelPHP framework and configuring it to connect to a MySQL database. He shows how to set up a model, specify its properties and creating a controller to handle the user interaction. Using the definitions in the model, FuelPHP can automatically generate a form, complete with default options and some validation on the field (things like "required", "valid_url" and "max_length"). There's also code included showing how to edit current posts and listing out the complete post list.
