I'm trying to render a custom form using renderWith().

I'm still quite new to SS, so the data model isn't entirely clear to me yet. Here's what I have so far:

	class SignupForm extends Form 
		function __construct($controller, $name) 
			  $fields = new FieldSet(
					new TextField("FirstName", "voornaam"),
					new TextField("Surname,", 'naam'),
					new DateField('BirthDate', 'geboortedatum'),
					new EmailField("Email", "e-mail adres"),
					new PhoneNumberField('Mobile', 'gsm'),
					new PhoneNumberField('Fax', 'fax'),
					new TextField('Street', 'straat'),
					new TextField('Number', 'huisnummer'),
					new TextField('Zip', 'postcode'),
					new TextField('City', 'gemeente')
			  $actions = new FieldSet("SignupAction", "word lid");
			  parent::__construct($controller, $name, $fields, $actions);
		function forTemplate() {
			  return $this->renderWith(array(
		function submit($data, $form) {
			$submission = new SignupFormSubmission();

Now, how do i make it actually render, using my custom SignupForm template? I guess I need to create a Model and controller for the page, but what should be in those classes? Also, how do i integrate validation?

Thanks a million.

if i understand your question, you should be able to comment the 'Director::redirectBack();' line in the submit function and use
to render with your template.
