I've been playing a while with the module. I like everything that it offers like drag-and-drop user interfaces, email submissions, etc..

Now what I want to extend the functionality behind this so that I can have every new editableformfields' values to be saved into DataObject.

For eg, I have this code here

function doSubmitRegistration($data, $form){
$volunteer = new Volunteer();


'IVP Volunteer Registraton Form successfully submitted',

This code is uses the FormField - not the formfield from UDF's module. I have a volunteer table, or dataObject in this case.

I explicitly save all the form's input fields by referencing its dataFieldByName property (and obtaining its data value) and then saved them into my volunteer Dataobject.

So how do I to accomplish something similar under the UDF's framework? What are accessor methods or classes in the getFieldConfiguration method can I hope to accomplish like this?
