I wrote:

$templateData = array(
'WelcomeMessage' => $welcomeMsg, // Accessible in template via $WelcomeMessage
'VarFirstName' => $SignupFirst,
'VarEmail' => $SignupEmailAddress,
'VarPassword' => $SignupPwd,
'VarSurname' => $SignupSurn
);
$email->populateTemplate($templateData);

and my SignUp.ss template is:

<h3>Hi, $VarFirstName $VarSurname.</h3>
<br/>

<p>$WelcomeMessage</p>

<ul>
<li><strong>Email:</strong>$VarEmail</li>
<li><strong>Password:</strong>$VarPassword</li>

but my template vars on signup.ss are not populated. Only $WelcomeMessage. Why?

What about making sure the values are actually passed into $templateData?

$templateData = array(
'WelcomeMessage' => $welcomeMsg, // Accessible in template via $WelcomeMessage
'VarFirstName' => $SignupFirst,
'VarEmail' => $SignupEmailAddress,
'VarPassword' => $SignupPwd,
'VarSurname' => $SignupSurn
);

var_dump($templateData['VarFirstName']); exit;

$email->populateTemplate($templateData);

Where are the $SignupFirst and friends coming from, can you show more code?

cheers,

Thank you for your reply.

The code is:

function Invia_Email_Registrazione($data) {

$from="info@abc.zxx";
$to=$data['Email'];
$subject="Confirmed";
$body="";
$email = new Email($from, $to, $subject, $body);
$email->setTemplate('SignUp');
$SignupFirst=$data['FirstName'];
$SignupSurn=$data['Surname'];
$SignupEmailAddress=$data['Email'];
$SignupPwd=$data['Password'];
$welcomeMsg = ' Ti sei registrato il '.date('Y-m-d'.'!');

$data coming from function SignupAction($data, $form) because I call $this->Invia_Email_Registrazione($data) into SignupAction.

Bye

Just put the line

var_dump($variable_to_display); exit;

into the code somewhere and use the page as normal. var_dump will print out the content of the variable (object or whatever) and exit will kill the program just afterwards, so you will be able to see the output. See the code block in my first post.
