Differently from Zend Framework 1, I couldn’t find any good documentation about the usage of subforms in Zend Framework 2.
After a bit of investigation, I understood how to use them.
When the subforms extend the `Fieldset` ZF2 class, they can be added to the form with a name, and that name (e.g. subform1 and subform2) will be used with getData() and setData() as a key of the subform data array.
The validation can stay in each related subform, the isValid() ZF2 Form will recursively validate all the subforms.
A `MainForm` contains two subforms (named `subform1` and `subform2`) of the same class `SubForm`.
Once filled in, getData() will return the following. Equally, the same array structure will fill in the related fields.
$data = array(‘formElement’ => ‘…’,‘subform1’ => array(‘first’ => ‘…’,‘second’ => ‘…’,),‘subform2’ => array(‘first’ => ‘…’,‘second’ => ‘…’,));
Here the code:
