    Newsletter 0.4 - customize a part of newsletter subscription form Link to this post


    I try to have a subscription form on all my pages. So i add this function in my Page_Controller in Page.php (and i use it in my template) :

    function NewsletterSubscribeForm($newsletterTitle){
       $subscribeForm = DataObject::get_one('SubscribeForm', "`Title`='$newsletterTitle'");

       if($subscribeForm) {
             $locale = Translatable::get_current_locale();
             $subscribeForm = $subscribeForm->getTranslation($locale);

          $formController = new SubscribeForm_Controller($subscribeForm);

          return $formController->Form()->renderWith('MyNewsletterSubscribeForm', 'Form');

       return false;

    It's OK, it works.

    But I have only one newsletter and i don't want to select a newsletter in the list... I would like to default checked this newsletter. I try to add this code juste before the return in my function :

    // I get the source to have the keys
    $source = $formController->Form()->Fields()->fieldByName('Newsletters')->getSource();
    $values = array();

    // I create an array "values" with source keys and values set to 1 (to have HTML 'checked="checked"' when the form will render)
    foreach($source as $index => $item) {
       if ( is_a($item, 'DataObject') ) $key = $item->ID;
       else $key = $index;

       $values[$key] = 1;

    // I set Value for this CheckboxSetField

    But it doesn't work :'(
