I have an entity page where the entity has an email field. On that page, there is a form built in a custom module. What I'd like to to is that on form submit, the module sends an email to the address that is the value in the entity field.

So somehow I need to pass that email address to the form submit function.

What is the best way of doing this?

  • any reasons you can not incorporate custom form as other fields in your entity form?

One way is to put either the e-mail or an ID referencing the e-mail (the NID of the node where it is stored for example) as a hidden field, which will be received by your submit handler hook.


  • That doesn't solve the problem of getting the value of the email field into the scope of the form builder function in my custom module. Jun 23 '14 at 6:06
