Hi ! This is my custom code to add some fields to the form :



class MyMember extends DataObjectDecorator {

	//Add extra database fields
	function extraStatics(){
		return array(
			'db' => array(
			    'Pseudo' => 'Varchar(255)',
			    'TheWebsite' => 'Varchar(255)',
			    'ConfirmationEmail' => 'Varchar(255)'
	public function updateMemberFormFields(&$fields) {
		$fields->push(new TextField('Pseudo', 'Pseudo'));
		$fields->push(new TextField('TheWebsite', 'TheWebsite'));
		$fields->push(new EmailField('ConfirmationEmail', 'ConfirmationEmail'));




Object::add_extension('Member', 'MyMember');

If you find errors or faults, please let me know !

Regarding the confirmation email field, I think the best way to check if fields are matched is :

-First, get the form. Do you think I need to create a new php file, e.g. MyForm.php with an extended MemberProfilePage class ? Or can I get the form into an another class in my MyMember.php ?
I have not yet found how can I get the form...I already tried this code, but I don't know where I need to put it :

function getCMSFields() {
	$fields = parent::getCMSFields();
        //get the email field
	$email = $fields->FieldByName('Email');
        //then, get the value of the email field, but how ?
        //return fields
	return $fields;

Do you think it's a good way ? Does this code can work ?

-Second, extract the email fields values. With loadDataFrom(), or getData(), or something else ?

-Thirdly, check if the email fields are matched before form submitting. I really don't know how can I do this.

-Finally, submit the form.

Is this the best way ? Or do you know something else easier ?

Hi !

For the time being, I have no time to work on this confirmation email field (I must work on a problem with the blog RSS Feed).
But if (or when) I have time, I'ill continue to find the solution. :)
