I am trying to build a questionnaire that simply replaces (alters) the label of a list-field.

I´m doing so by replacing a token from views (embed) and using a hook_alter_form function in an separate module.

Question: How can I save that value and write it to the database? I´m using an Entity form and a list-field.

This is the snippet I´m struggling with:

function question_to_label_node_presave($node) {
  if ($node->type == 'page') {
    $replaced_text =  token_replace($node->field_question['und'][0]['value']);
    $node->field_question['und'][0]['value'] = $replaced_text;

Found from here.

I'm currently trying to run this in a custom module but cannot seem to find the right node type for Entity form. I´m using the Devel-module, trying to find the right array value.

  • Hi and welcome to Drupal Answers. Could you please make your question clearer? What is a "select or other"-field? Which entity form? Please share your code. – Wtower Dec 29 '14 at 14:50

I´ve solved it by using a token, and placed that token (from a view) in a hidden field in that form - thus saving that value.

The same token generated from views - I used to alter the label for that question with "hook_alter_form".

A kind of non programmatically way of solving the problem.
