    Help with simple form Link to this post

    Hi, I am currently working on a website and am having trouble with forms.

    I am attempting to create a simple quiz where the user has one question with 5 options. I have got to the stage where the form is created, but I am stuck on how to return / pass the value they have selected. Following the tutorials and documentation, I have got this so far. Basically all this is trying to do is display weather the user has selected option 1 or not, however I am not that familiar with php and am struggling to pass the value.

    Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    class Quiz_Controller extends Page_Controller {

    function Quiz() {
    // Create fields
    $fields = new FieldSet(
    // List the your fields here
    new OptionsetField(
    $name = "Quiz1",
    $title = "Test Qustion...",
    $source = array(
    "1" => "Option 1",
    "2" => "Option 2",
    "3" => "Option 3",
    "4" => "Option 4",
    "5" => "Option 5"

    // Create actions
    $actions = new FieldSet(
    new FormAction('doQuiz', 'Submit')

    return new Form($this, 'Quiz', $fields, $actions);

    function doQuiz($source) {

    if ($source=="1")
    echo "Option1 selected";
    echo "Option1 not selected";



    Again, it is this last function, doQuiz, or more so the passing of values between the two functions, that I am struggling with.

    All your values are stored in the array $source ..

    Use $source['source'] to get the requested value.
