I have a custom entity type, and I'm defining its form, which extends
ContentEntityForm. During my
save() function, I want the form to conditionally unset fields based on the values of other fields. (example: unset the value of a list select field if a certain checkbox is checked off)
I can't seem to accomplish this with
$form_state->setValueForElement(), in both cases my code is seemingly ignored and the select widget is not unset upon finishing saving (although a var_dump of
$form_state->getValues() at the end of the function shows that the values array is indeed being modified the way I want it to be).
However, the following code seems to work nicely for the
title field (defined via
baseFieldDefinitions(), is not inside a field collection):
$entity = $this->getEntity(); $entity->set('title', array(array("value" => "aaaaaaaa"))); $entity->save();
My title for the newly saved entity does indeed show up as "aaaaaaaa"
Is it possible to target fields inside field collections in this way using this
$entity object? Or is this the totally wrong approach?
