is there a way to rename the automatically labeled input fields of a form?
The form elements are declared ‘public’ within the model, e.g.:
Now, if I use the form generator this will easily make a form with a text field called ‘bday’ and is labeled like that as well:
<?php echo $form->labelEx($model,'bday'); ?> <?php echo $form->textfield($model,'bday'); ?> <?php echo $form->error($model,'bday'); ?>
Is there a way to quickly rename the input field? I would like to have it labeled as ‘Birthday’ instead.
Also, if it is a required field is there are way that it will display an error message stating ‘Birthday can not be blank’ instead of ‘bday can not be blank’?
The only way I can think of is renaming the variable in the model but maybe there is another way as well?
Thank you very much for your help in advance
