    Problem with custom form Template Link to this post


    I'm trying to render a custom form using renderWith().

    I'm still quite new to SS, so the data model isn't entirely clear to me yet. Here's what I have so far:

       class SignupForm extends Form
          function __construct($controller, $name)
              $fields = new FieldSet(
                   new TextField("FirstName", "voornaam"),
                   new TextField("Surname,", 'naam'),
                   new DateField('BirthDate', 'geboortedatum'),
                   new EmailField("Email", "e-mail adres"),
                   new PhoneNumberField('Mobile', 'gsm'),
                   new PhoneNumberField('Fax', 'fax'),
                   new TextField('Street', 'straat'),
                   new TextField('Number', 'huisnummer'),
                   new TextField('Zip', 'postcode'),
                   new TextField('City', 'gemeente')
              $actions = new FieldSet("SignupAction", "word lid");
              parent::__construct($controller, $name, $fields, $actions);
          function forTemplate() {
              return $this->renderWith(array(
          function submit($data, $form) {
             $submission = new SignupFormSubmission();

    Now, how do i make it actually render, using my custom SignupForm template? I guess I need to create a Model and controller for the page, but what should be in those classes? Also, how do i integrate validation?

    Thanks a million.

    if i understand your question, you should be able to comment the 'Director::redirectBack();' line in the submit function and use
    to render with your SignupForm.ss template.
