    Hi,

    I want to use a hook like “forminator_form_before_save_entry” to make some modification to a specific field before passing the entries to be saved

    Thanks

    Hi @mehdismekouar,

    I hope you are doing well today!

    We are checking your request with our SLS (Second Line Support) team to provide a workaround or custom code to achieve this and will inform you accordingly.

    Thanks for the patience while we are looking into this.

    Kind regards,
    Zafer

    Hi again @mehdismekouar,

    Our SLS team provided the following code snippet which could be used as mu-plugin.

    <?php
    add_action( 'forminator_custom_form_submit_before_set_fields', 'wpmudev_change_submitted_field_data', 10, 3 );
    function wpmudev_change_submitted_field_data( $entry, $module_id, $field_data_array ) {
        $form_ids = array(141); //Please change the form ID
    	if ( !in_array( $module_id, $form_ids ) ) {
    		return;
    	}
        
        foreach ( $field_data_array as $key => $value ) {
            if ( 'hidden-1' == $value['name'] ) {
                Forminator_CForm_Front_Action::$info['field_data_array'][$key]['value'] = sanitize_text_field( 'your new value' );
            }
        }
    
    }

    This is just an example to change the hidden-1 field’s values. Please make sure to change your form ID and you can find more information below on how to use mu-plugins.

    I tried the code but it didn’t work
    I did a small modification with logging, i get the value and i do modify it but it doesn’t get stored modified

    
    add_action( 'forminator_custom_form_submit_before_set_fields', 'phone_number_correction', 10, 3 );
    function phone_number_correction( $entry, $module_id, $field_data_array ) {
    $form_ids = array(3730); //Please change the form ID
    if ( !in_array( $module_id, $form_ids ) ) {
    return;
    }
    
    foreach ( $field_data_array as $key => $value ) {
        if ( 'phone-1' == $value['name'] ) {
            error_log('old phone: ' . $value['value']);
            $new_phone = str_replace('+2120', '+212', str_replace(' ', '', $value['value']));
            error_log('new phone: ' . $new_phone);
            Forminator_CForm_Front_Action::$info['field_data_array'][$key]['value'] = $new_phone;
            $field_data_array[$key]['value'] = $new_phone;
        }
    }
    }

    Here is the logged result for a subscription example:

    [16-Dec-2023 12:00:12 UTC] old phone: +212 611 223344
    [16-Dec-2023 12:00:12 UTC] new phone: +212611223344

    and the stored value is shown as follows

    Hi @mehdismekouar,

    Hope this message finds you well.

    Before escalating to our developers, I noticed that a function is mission in this line:

    Forminator_CForm_Front_Action::$info['field_data_array'][$key]['value'] = $new_phone;

    It should be

    Forminator_CForm_Front_Action::$info['field_data_array'][$key]['value'] = sanitize_text_field($new_phone);

    Note that sanitize_text_field() function is required.

    Could you replace it and try again? Here is the final code with the changes:

    add_action( 'forminator_custom_form_submit_before_set_fields', 'phone_number_correction', 10, 3 );
        function phone_number_correction( $entry, $module_id, $field_data_array ) {
        $form_ids = array(3730); //Please change the form ID
        if ( !in_array( $module_id, $form_ids ) ) {
        return;
        }
    
        foreach ( $field_data_array as $key => $value ) {
            if ( 'phone-1' == $value['name'] ) {
                error_log('old phone: ' . $value['value']);
                $new_phone = str_replace('+2120', '+212', str_replace(' ', '', $value['value']));
                error_log('new phone: ' . $new_phone);
                Forminator_CForm_Front_Action::$info['field_data_array'][$key]['value'] = sanitize_text_field($new_phone);
                $field_data_array[$key]['value'] = $new_phone;
            }
        }
    }

    Let us know if it works.

    Best regards,
    Laura

    Hi @mehdismekouar,

    Could you please try this snippet and then check whether it works fine:

    <?php
    
    add_action( 'forminator_custom_form_submit_before_set_fields', 'phone_number_correction', 10, 3 );
        function phone_number_correction( $entry, $module_id, $field_data_array ) {
        $form_ids = array(3730); // Please change the form ID.
        if ( !in_array( $module_id, $form_ids ) ) {
            return;
        }
    
        foreach ( $field_data_array as $key => $value ) {
            if ( 'phone-1' == $value['name'] ) {
                $new_phone = str_replace( '+2120', '+212', $value['value'] );
                $new_phone = str_replace(' ', '', $new_phone);
                Forminator_CForm_Front_Action::$info['field_data_array'][$key]['value'] = sanitize_text_field($new_phone);
            }
        }
    }
    
    
    add_filter( 'forminator_prepared_data', 'phone_number_correction_prepared', 10, 2 );
    function phone_number_correction_prepared( $prepared_data, $module_object ){
    	if ( $module_object->id != 3730 ) { // Please change the form ID.
    		return $prepared_data;
    	}
    
    	if ( ! empty( $prepared_data['phone-1'] ) ) {
            $new_phone = str_replace( '+2120', '+212', $prepared_data['phone-1'] );
            $new_phone = str_replace(' ', '', $new_phone);
    		$prepared_data['phone-1'] = sanitize_text_field($new_phone);
    	}
    
    	return $prepared_data;
    }
    
    

    You’ll have to make sure to update 3730 in the above snippet with your from ID.

    Could you please check and see whether the above helps?

    Kind Regards,
