Issue Type: Patch Created: 2008-10-20T12:57:58.000+0000 Last Updated: 2010-04-16T13:07:14.000+0000 Status: Resolved Fix version(s): - 1.10.4 (28/Apr/10)

In the manual the text and examples mention that addFilter() and addValidator() also takes the fully qualified class name like Zend_Filter_Alnum or Zend_Validate_Alnum. This does not work any more since 1.6.0 and throws the following fatal error:

Fatal error: Uncaught exception 'Zend_Loader_PluginLoader_Exception' with message 'Plugin by name Zend_Filter_Alpha was not found in the registry.' in /home/devhost/zfbuch/ZendFramework-1.6.2/library/Zend/Loader/PluginLoader.php:370 Stack trace: #0 /home/devhost/zfbuch/ZendFramework-1.6.2/library/Zend/Form/Element.php(1937): Zend_Loader_PluginLoader->load('Zend_Filter_Alp...') #1 /home/devhost/zfbuch/ZendFramework-1.6.2/library/Zend/Form/Element.php(1613): Zend_Form_Element->_loadFilter(Array) #2 /home/devhost/zfbuch/ZendFramework-1.6.2/library/Zend/Form/Element.php(524): Zend_Form_Element->getFilters() #3 /home/devhost/zfbuch/ZendFramework-1.6.2/library/Zend/Form/Element.php(541): Zend_Form_Element->_filterValue(NULL, NULL) #4 /home/devhost/zfbuch/ZendFramework-1.6.2/library/Zend/Form/Decorator/ViewHelper.php(201): Zend_Form_Element->getValue() #5 /home/devhost/zfbuch/ZendFramework-1.6.2/library/Zend/Form/Decorator/ViewHelper.php(231): Zend_Form_Decorator_ViewHelper->getValue(Object(Zend_Form_Element_Text))
