    I want to get a response from server when clicking on the submit-button (in the donation frontend form).

    I’m able to use filter give_donation_form_required_fields to do this. Doing this way using a modal form allows the error to be shown directly under the submit-button in the donation form. If I do an set_error() in the give_gateway_[gateway] – action then the page is reloaded and the error is not shown in the modal form.

    When using give_donation_form_required_fields I can only test certain things on the external server. What I want to is to test an actual payment to the external gateway server and get a response that is output on the modal form if an error occurs. This requires the page not be reloaded, but it is reloaded when processing the actual payment.

    Do I need ajax doing this? Or are there any “prepayment” filter or so? (I need the purchase data to do the actual testing to the external server)

    @wibergsweb Give ajax uses to validate field values.

    for example:
    1. validate gateway
    2. validate amount
    3. spam detection
    3. etc.

    if you are using give_gateway_[gateway] then I will suggest you do not use set_error() fn instead use give_send_back_to_checkout with extra param and hook pre donation form filter to show your error.

    code 1:
    if( $error){
                'card_decline' => $payment_gateway_response
                 // add your custom error here
                 // use unique query param to prevent future conflict
    code 2:
    // pre form hook to show errors
    function xyz_render_errors( $form_id ){}
    add_action( 'give_pre_form', 'xyz_render_errors', 10, 1 );

    Aha. That was a good solution!give_pre_form! Thanks a lot!

    Glad to hear we were able to help you sort this out. What are you building out exactly? Is it a third-party integration? Would love to hear what your use-case is.

    I’m building a plugin for a specific customer that is a startup-company. The company are going to offer swish as payment and I got the honor to do this. The customers business idea is about making donations to save the world 🙂 (basically)
