Forms Module - Display user data in "After submit text"
  • Hi,

    We would like to display data that the user has entered in the "After submit text".

    Example:

    Dear {firstname}{surname},

    Thank you for your interest.


    Click here to download the bid document.

    //{mydoc} is a hidden input field obtained from get parameter in the form URL

    We would be most grateful if you could advise us on how we can achieve this.

    Thank you.
  • You may want to look at creating a separate page altogether and using the "return_url" parameter to point to that. There is a flashdata called "posted" which will have all the posted data information in which you can merge into that page.
  • Hi admin,

    Thanks a lot for your support.

    We have created the static page in fuel/application/views and pointed the return_url to that page and this part works ok. We are trying to output the posted flashdata in the page as below but it is not showing. Getting error instead.

    var_dump($this->CI->session->flashdata('posted'));

    We would be most grateful if you could let us know what we could be doing wrong.

    Thank you.
  • What's the error that you are getting?
  • Hi admin,

    This is the error below. We also tried to echo it from a controller method and encountered similar errors.

    Thank you.

  • Try just referencing the $CI object and not $this->CI:
    var_dump($CI->session->flashdata('posted'));
  • Hi,

    We tried that as well and still got same type of error.

    We tested another way by creating a session userdata for the form post to show it in the view and clearing the session data once it has been displayed.

    Thanks a lot for your support.
