I have written a custom module which defines some tokens. These tokens are used e.g. in Wysiwyg editor this way: [mytype:closing_date] (I have token_filter module)

Is it posible to make these tokens available also in the Webform module, and specifically in the confirmation e-mail that is sent after filling the form?

I tried %mytype[closing_date] but didn't work.

use also the token module, you'll find instructions in its documentation.

basically, you'll need to implement these two hooks:

function my_user_token_values($type, $object = NULL, $options = array()) {
  if ($type == 'user') {
    $user = $object;
    $tokens['name']      = $user->name;
    $tokens['mail']      = $user->mail;
    return $tokens;


function my_user_token_list($type = 'all') {
  if ($type == 'user' || $type == 'all') {
    $tokens['user']['name']      = t("The user's name");
    $tokens['user']['mail']      = t("The user's email address");
    return $tokens;

I have already implemented these hooks in my custom module which defines tokens (the hooks are named differently in D7 than in D6). But how to use them in the Webform e-mail confirmation? – camcam Mar 28 '12 at 20:26
