Saving form with data from AJAX (outputFormatting terror!)


Recommended Posts


I am trying to build a form which is saved via AJAX, containing text fields, selects and checkboxes. No matter what I do, I can't get rid of the error "Call $page->setOutputFormatting(false) before getting/setting values that will be modified and saved."

The problem is mostly with data coming from selects. I compared my Ajax data with the post data from a regular form submit and afaict it matches.

My special case right now is for two selects from inputfieldPage ("year" and "schaltgruppe_kurbel"), each configured to hold only one page. The form sends single values (page ids) and the error is thrown. I tried converting all single values to arrays with one element, but no success. 

This is my script to save the data. It runs in a module:

$prod = $this->pages->get($this->id);

$prod->of(false); # this doesn't really make a difference but it's here.

$form = $this->modules->get('InputfieldForm');

$fields = $prod->getInputfields();

foreach($fields as $f) $form->append($f);

foreach($form as $f) $prod->set($f->name, $f->value);

$prod->save(); # ERROR

Can anyone help? I'm really stuck here ...



PS I also tried leaving out the PW admin specific stuff like processInput and set the input data directly, but no change ...

Thanks Kongondo,

I put of(false) almost everywhere now and most of it seems to work. I still need to catch a few fieldtypes in order to get the right info out of them but I'm getting there.
