I am adding the Highrise API to submit information from a user defined for to highrise (with name / email to create the person and everything else into a note). I'd like to create validation for the User defined from that if my new check box...

    * @var Array Fields on the user defined form page.
   static $db = array(
      "SubmitButtonText" => "Varchar",
      "OnCompleteMessage" => "HTMLText",
      "ShowClearButton" => "Boolean",
      'DisableSaveSubmissions' => 'Boolean',
      'SendResultsToHighrise' => 'Boolean' //<---- new check box, also added on the submission page

when this is checked the form is required to have three fields firstname, lastname and email - how would I add this in a validator?

To anwser this myself...

class UserDefinedForm extends Page {
   function getCMSValidator() {
      return new UserDefinedForm_Validator();

class UserDefinedForm_Validator extends RequiredFields {

   function ExistsAndRequired($f,$strTitle,$strType) {
      return (
         isset($f['Title']) && isset($f['Type']) && isset($f['Required']) &&
         $f['Title'] == $strTitle && $f['Type'] == $strType && $f['Required'] == 1

   function php($data) {
      $bRet = parent::php($data);

      $bFirstname = false;
      $bLastname = false;
      $bEmail = false;

      if (count($data['Fields'])) foreach ($data['Fields'] as $field) {
         if ($this->ExistsAndRequired($field,'Firstname','EditableTextField')) $bFirstname =true;
         if ($this->ExistsAndRequired($field,'Surname','EditableTextField')) $bLastname =true;
         if ($this->ExistsAndRequired($field,'Email','EditableEmailField')) $bEmail =true;

      if ($data['SendResultsToHighrise']==1) {
         if (!($bFirstname && $bLastname && $bEmail)) {
            $this->validationError('Fields','Firstname, Lastname & Email fields are required to send details to Highrise',"required");$bRet = false;

      return $bRet;
