HI,

Id like to create some specific user forms for my site. I tried the userdefinedform module which is great to handle in the admin area but lacks the ability to design and apply ur own template to the form.

I therefore started to create my own user form following these 2 tutorials:
[url]http://blog.mike-wittje.de/2009/06/11/formularerstellung-mit-silverstripe/[/url]
[url]http://www.ssbits.com/creating-a-simple-contact-form/[/url]

Now I would like to add the tabs and functionality simialr to the userdefinedfrom to my form:

class SampleFormPage extends Page
{

   static $db = array(

      'Mailto' => 'Varchar(100)',
      'SubmitText' => 'Text'

   );

   static $has_many = array(
      "Submissions" => "SubmittedForm",
      "EmailRecipients" => "UserDefinedForm_EmailRecipient"
   );

   function getCMSFields() {

      $fields = parent::getCMSFields();

      // define tabs
      $fields->findOrMakeTab('Root.Content.EmailRecipients', _t('EMAILRECIPIENTS', 'Email Recipients'));
      $fields->findOrMakeTab('Root.Content.OnComplete', _t('ONCOMPLETE', 'On Complete'));
      $fields->findOrMakeTab('Root.Content.Submissions', _t('SUBMISSIONS', 'Submissions'));

         

      // view the submissions
      $fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.Submissions", new CheckboxField('DisableSaveSubmissions',_t('SAVESUBMISSIONS',"Disable Saving Submissions to Server")));
      $fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.Submissions", new SubmittedFormReportField( "Reports", _t('RECEIVED', 'Received Submissions'), "", $this ) );

      // who do we email on submission

      $emailRecipients = new ComplexTableField(

         $this,
       'EmailRecipients',
       'EmailRecipient',
       array(

            'EmailAddress' => _t('EMAILADDRESS', 'Email'),

            'EmailSubject' => _t('EMAILSUBJECT', 'Subject'),

            'EmailFrom' => _t('EMAILFROM', 'From')

       ),

       'getCMSFields_forPopup',

         "FormID = '$this->ID'"

      );

      

      $emailRecipients->setAddTitle(_t('AEMAILRECIPIENT', 'A Email Recipient'));
      $fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.EmailRecipients", $emailRecipients);

      // text to show on complete
      $onCompleteFieldSet = new FieldSet(

         new HtmlEditorField( "OnCompleteMessage", _t('ONCOMPLETELABEL', 'Show on completion'),3,"",_t('ONCOMPLETEMESSAGE', $this->OnCompleteMessage), $this )

      );

      $fields->addFieldsToTab("Root.Content.OnComplete", $onCompleteFieldSet);

      return $fields;   

   }

}

class SampleFormPage_Controller extends Page_Controller
{

function SampleForm()
{

return new SampleForm($this,'SampleForm');

}

}

The tabs appear but I won't get the email adding, the onsubmission text and the submission to work.
Can anyone help me out, show where i can find the answer or even know a better way to about this?

Your will be very much appreciated...
