I would like to set the first and last name field using hook form alter. I am already in the right form and able to dump the array you can see it below. This is the form 'commerce_addressbook_customer_profile_form':

The field I want to populate is this

I am unable to set the value of the first and last name field. Here is the array when I print $form.

  Array

    [#parents] => Array
        (

I tried these

 $form['commerce_customer_address']['und'][0]['#columns'][11]['first_name'] = "test";
 $form['commerce_customer_address']['und'][0]['#columns']['first_name'] = "test";
 $form['commerce_customer_address']['und'][0]['#columns'][11]['first_name'] = "test";
 $form['commerce_customer_address']['und'][0]['name_block']['first_name']["value"]['#default_value'] ='test';
 $form['commerce_customer_address']['und'][0]['name_block']['first_name']['#default_value'] ='test';
 $form["commerce_customer_address'"]["und"][0]["value"]['#default_value'] ='test';
 $form['commerce_customer_address']['und'][0]['first_name'] = "test";

and other variations but I am not seeing the value populate

For example this

$form['commerce_customer_address']['und'][0]['name_block']['first_name']['#title']='test';

Changes the title of the field to test, but I still can not set a default value to pre-populate the field on page load.

addressfield is not really a regular form. but uses an address object.

now there is a hook to set de default value, called hook_addressfield_default_values_alter, and you can set it like this:

function hook_addressfield_default_values_alter (&$default_values, $context) {
  $default_values['first_name'] = 'deFaulT';
}

see also here and How can I set a default value for the country in an addressfield?
