 * Provides a base class for forms.

 * ContainerInjectionInterface, and a less-structured use of traits which
 * default to using the \Drupal accessor for service discovery.
 *
 * To properly inject services, override create() and use the setters provided
 * by the traits to inject the needed services.
 *
 * @code
 * public static function create($container) {
 *   $form = new static();
 *   // In this example we only need string translation so we use the
 *   // setStringTranslation() method provided by StringTranslationTrait.
 *   $form->setStringTranslation($container->get('string_translation'));
 *   return $form;
 * }
 * @endcode
 *
 * Alternately, do not use FormBase. A class can implement FormInterface, use
 * the traits it needs, and inject services from the container as required.
 *
 * @ingroup form_api
