Display details from com_connect form in thanks_form? [resolved]

This is another one of those “I’m sure I got this working before” things. I’d like to display selected parts of the submitted form in a com_connect thanks_form.

I can see the submitted details in the browser devtools:

but getting at them proved convoluted. I though I could retrieve them as $_POST variables using <txp:page_url type="empfaenger" /> or perhaps <txp:php>echo ps('empfaenger');</txp:php>, but no luck.

After some experimentation, I have this:

<txp:php>
global $variable;
parse_str(file_get_contents("php://input"), $data);
$data = (object)$data; // Cast it to an object
$variable['recipient'] = $data->empfaenger;
</txp:php>

which gives me a txp variable to use elsewhere, e.g. <txp:variable name="recipient" />.

My question: Is there an easier way to do this?

Re: Display details from com_connect form in thanks_form? [resolved]

You should be able to access them via the built in tags like <txp:com_connect_value>. But its success may depend on the type of field you’re accessing. There’s a bug with the file input that phiw13 uncovered for example. And getting at multiple checkbox values may or may not be easy.

If you hit any snags, I’ll see if we can make it simpler.

Perfect! Classic case of overthinking things. I thought that tag was for the custom email body but it works here just fine. My case is a to_form select box. Thank you!
