    Writing Custom Data to fields onWrite Link to this post

    I have a page type of "Venue" setup with 2 fields "Address" which I want CMS Editors to input and "LatLong" which will store the latitudes and longitude of a Google Geocoding Request (this will be used to generate google maps later).

    I would like this all to happen automatically whenever the page is saved and published from the CMS. Is this possible what functions/methods should I use?

    I have dug around in the documentation and nothing seems to quite fit my needs.

    Any suggestions?

    Sounds like onAfterWrite() would work for that.


    Thats the onBeforeWrite() but there is also onAfterWrite() and events for your datamodel on most actions.
