hi

I want to remove some fields from saving if some conditions match ... example:

public function onBeforeWrite() {

	if($this->owner->salutation == 'Ms') {
	    unset ($this->owner->somefield);
	}

	parent::onBeforeWrite();
    }

If users salutation = "Ms" the field "somefield" should be ignored when saving, even user changed the field ...

The sample code dont work for me.

thx

I haven't tested this in a decorator, only in a Page class, where replacing $this->somefield with $this->record['somefield'] did the trick. So maybe unset($this->owner->record['somefield']); will work...
