Hi all,
I am now currently trying to extend the user form module (https://github.com/silverstripe/silverstripe-userforms). I noticed there is several hooks like

$submittedForm->extend(onPopulationFormField,$field)
Now I have a class
 class CustomForm extends UserDefinedForm {
       public function onPopulationFormField($field){
           ...
       }
}

But it doesn't enter that function. I am trying to populate a hiddenfield before the form is submitted to the server. Can someone provide me some examples or instruction on how to do this please?

Thank You.
Best regards.

Hi

these hooks not for subclasses, they for extensions see http://api.silverstripe.org/master/class-SilverStripe.Core.Extension.html
