Hi,
I would like to convert the below code, adapted from a SSbits tutorial, into a format that allows me to specify my own custom form template as demonstrated here http://doc.silverstripe.org/doku.php?id=form#using_a_custom_template).

I am not entirely clear on what goes in the Myforms.php and what does in the ContactPage.php.

Any help would be greatly appreciated,
Sam

<?php

class ContactPage extends Page
{
   static $db = array(
      'Mailto' => 'Varchar(100)', //Email address to send submissions to
      'SubmitText' => 'HTMLText' //Text presented after submitting message
   );
   
   //CMS fields
   function getCMSFields() {
      $fields = parent::getCMSFields();
   
      $fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.OnSubmission", new TextField('Mailto', 'Email submissions to'));   
      $fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.OnSubmission", new HTMLEditorField('SubmitText', 'Text on Submission'));   
   
      return $fields;   
   }

}
/* *****************
* Controller
******************/
class ContactPage_Controller extends Page_Controller
{
   function ContactForm() {
   // Create fields
      $Params = Director::urlParams();
      
    $fields = new FieldSet(
       new TextField('Name', 'Name*'),
         new EmailField('Email', 'Email*'),
         new TextareaField('Comments','Comments*')
      );
       
    // Create action
    $actions = new FieldSet(
       new FormAction('SendContactForm', 'Send')
    );
      // Create action
      $validator = new RequiredFields('Name', 'Email', 'Comments');
   
       $form = new Form($this, 'ContactForm', $fields, $actions, $validator);
      $protector = SpamProtectorManager::update_form($form, 'Captcha');
   if($protector) $protector->setFieldMapping('Name', 'Email','Comments');
      return $form;
   }
   

   function SendContactForm($data) {

       //Set data
      $From = $data['Email'];
      $To = $this->Mailto;
      $Subject = "Website Contact message";    
      $email = new Email($From, $To, $Subject);
      //set template
      $email->setTemplate('ContactEmail');
      //populate template
      $email->populateTemplate($data);
      //send mail
      $email->send();
       //return to submitted message
      Director::redirect(Director::baseURL(). $this->URLSegment . "/?success=1");

   }

   public function Success()
   {
      return isset($_REQUEST['success']) && $_REQUEST['success'] == "1";
   }
?>

So I'm almost there. But I can't get mollom to work with my custom form class. I get an error if I uncomment the line -- $form = new Form($this, '__construct', etc., etc. -- in the ContactForm.php. This is the code that i've seen mentioned in the forum. But it doesn't appear to work with custom form classes.

Any help is appreciated!
Sam

ContactForm.php:

<?php
class ContactForm extends Form {

function __construct($controller, $name) {
$Params = Director::urlParams();
$fields = new FieldSet(
      new TextField('Name', 'Name*'),
      new EmailField('Email', 'Email*'),
      new TextareaField('Comments','Comments*'));

$actions = new FieldSet(
new FormAction("SendContactForm", "Submit"));

$requiredFields = new RequiredFields('Name', 'Email', 'Comments');

/* $form = new Form($this, '__construct', $fields, $actions,$requiredFields);
   $protector = SpamProtectorManager::update_form($form, 'Captcha');
   if($protector) $protector->setFieldMapping('Name', 'Email','Comments');
   return $form; */

   parent::__construct($controller, $name, $fields, $actions,$requiredFields);

} // END __construct

function forTemplate() {
return $this->renderWith(array(
$this->class,
'Form'
));
}
}
