    FORMS Link to this post

    Hi All,

    I have been trying to work this out for a very long time now with no success....

    I've got a business listing page set up right... and it has a list of details... on the listing page it has two different email addresses.. $Email1 and $Email2.

    When you click on the link for $Email1 or $Email2 it takes you to a contact page with the ID passed to the contact page

    I then want to get $Email1 and send the contact form to that email address... here is the code I have set up:

    class ContactListing_Controller extends Page_Controller {
       public function getEmail() {
             $ea = $_REQUEST['id'];
             $email = DataObject::get_by_id("BusinessListing", "$ea");
             $emailTo = $email->Email1;
    if(!$email) return false;

       public function ContactListingForm() {
             $ea = $_REQUEST['id'];
             $email = DataObject::get_by_id("BusinessListing", "$ea");
             $emailTo = $email->Email1;
          return new Form($this, "ContactListingForm", new FieldSet(
             new TextField("Name"),
             new TextField("Phone"),
             new TextField("Email", "Email"),
             new TextareaField("Comment"),
             new TextField("MyEmail", "MyEmail", "$emailTo")

          ), new FieldSet(
             new FormAction("ContactListingAction", "Submit")

          ), new RequiredFields());
       public function ContactListingAction($data, $form) {
             $from = 'example@email.com';
             $to = $data['MyEmail'];
             $subject = 'testing for website 9';
             $body = 'This is the body of my email';
             $email = new Email();


    The error I get is Undefined index: id

    I know that this is because I am essentially trying to POST the id and it's not being passed through the form...

    please help!!!

    SS has abstracted the old school PHP $_REQUEST variable. You will want to access variables in the $this->URLParams variable which will fetch it off the URL.
