php – yii\base\ErrorException – Class 'app\controllers\EntryForm' not found

Posted by: admin July 12, 2020 Leave a comment


I just tried the Working with Forms tutorial on the “basic” version of Yii v 2.0.0. I followed it step by step, but I guess something is wrong. I have the EntryForm model in place, SiteController has the actionEntry and both the views are there too.

Error Trace:

1. in /usr/share/nginx/html/basic/controllers/SiteController.php at line 99


public function actionAbout()
    return $this->render('about');

public function actionEntry()
    $model = new EntryForm;

    if ($model->load(Yii::$app->request->post()) && $model->validate()) {
        // valid data received in $model

        // do something meaningful here about $model ...

        return $this->render('entry-confirm', ['model' => $model]);
    } else {
        // either the page is initially displayed or there is some validation error

2. yii\base\ErrorHandler::handleFatalError() 
How to&Answers:

use app\models\EntryForm; in SiteController.php solved it.


The base namespace in SiteController.php is namespace app\controllers;.
So you can add use app\models\EntryForm; in the top of file or use $model = new \app\models\EntryForm(); for direct select of class.


Managed to resolve my issue by generation a different table using Gii. Then the auto generated class and used it on EnterForm.php

class EntryForm extends \yii\db\ActiveRecord
