Hi There,

i wonder if / how it's possible to add another action than sending an email to an UserDefinedForm (i.e. entering something into a db table).

Any hints anyone?

One way you can do that is to add a DataObjectDecorator to the SubmittedForm object and hook into the onBeforeWrite of the submittedform object to write the data to your other table.

Hi Willr,

thx for your answer.

since I need several different actions (sendig additional mails and more..), an even migth want to define them by the page, I extendend UserDefinedForm and overwrote the process method of it's controller like:

class FormPage_Controller extends UserDefinedForm_Controller {

function process($data, $form) {

	if ( $something ) {
	if ( $somethingElse ) {

	return parent::process($data, $form);

This currently seeems to work pretty fine for me.
Just wanted to mention if someone else is having this prob.

Regards (and still a happy new year! ;))
