Augmenting Validation on Subclassed Custom Forms




19 February 2013 at 3:09am Community Member, 528 Posts

I have a cusrtom form, with multiple subclasses forms that I want to augment the Validation porion on the sublcasses, but I'm not sure how to go about it.

The Custom Form

class LeadCaptureForm extends Form {
   public function __construct($controller, $name) {

      $fields = new FieldList(
      $actions = new FieldList(
       FormAction::create("leadSubmit")->setTitle($controller->FormButton)->setUseButtonTag(true)->addExtraClass('button red small point-right')
      $validation = new RequiredFields(array('Email'));
      parent::__construct($controller, $name, $fields, $actions, $validation);

The sublcassed forms look like this

class MarketForm extends LeadCaptureForm {
   function __construct($controller, $name) {
      parent::__construct($controller, $name);

      $newfields = new CompositeField(
      $this->Fields()->insertBefore($newfields, "main");

On the MarketForm I'd like to add a few of the LeadCaptureForms to the validation as well as the the fields from MarketForm.
