I'm using form object and am trying to set a default option from the options i retrieved from a model. Everywhere I searched it appears it should be possible to set the default value by setDefault. But I can't get it to work. What am I missing?
In my for object the field looks like below. It does populate everything it just sets the default to the first option found. And I want to set the default to 'drie maanden', which means 'three months'.
// Guarantee $guarantee = new Select('guarantee', GuaranteeType::find(), [ 'using' => ['name', 'name'], 'useEmpty' => false, 'emptyText' => 'Select guarantee term', 'emptyValue' => '', 'class' => 'form-control select2', ]); $guarantee->setDefault(); $guarantee->setLabel('Guarantee'); $guarantee->addValidators( [ new PresenceOf( [ "message" => "Selecting a guarantee term is required", ] ) ] ); $this->add($guarantee);
