I created on custom module to generate a form with this code

function report_page_form_form($form, &$form_state) {
    $meberArr = array();
        '#options'=> $meberArr,
    $form['field_start_date'] = array(
      '#date_format' => 'Y-m-d',
      '#type' => 'date_popup',
    $form['field_end_date'] = array(
      '#date_format' => 'Y-m-d',
      '#type' => 'date_popup',
// Provide a submit button.
          $form['submit'] = array(
            '#type' => 'submit',
            '#value' => 'Filter',
return $form;

In one of my node--nid.tpl.php, I am rendering this form as

 $arr = drupal_get_form('report_page_form_form');
 print drupal_render($arr); 

I am writing an SQL query in the same node--nid.tpl.php file to fetch data from DB.


I need to pass form submitted values to this query. Can anyone help me to do it.

You would get the values of the submitted form in hook_form_submit

function MY_MODULE_NAME_form_submit($form, &$form_state) {
         //your code here

You would get all the required values in $form_state['values']

  • Thanks Aparna. i need the $form_state['values'] in my node--nid.tpl.php. Is that possible instead of new module.

    You could try report_page_form_form_submit. I hope it will work
