I'm using a custom form in CTools Modal to alter comment.

$form['subject'] = array(
   '#type' => 'textfield',
   '#title' => t('Title'),
   '#default_value' => $comment->subject,
$form['comment_body'] = array(
   '#type' => 'text_format',
   '#default_value' => $comment->comment_body['und'][0]['value']

All is good. I get my comment title and my comment body which is pushed in ckeditor field. My submit :

$comment = comment_load($form_state['values']['cid']);
$comment->comment_body['und'][0]['value'] = $form_state['values']['comment_body']['und'][0]['value'];
$comment->subject = $form_state['values']['title'];


The subject is goodly saved from my form but for the body, it save an empty value.

Ps: when I change text_format for textfield, it work.


You forgot to add the format:

$comment->comment_body[LANGUAGE_NONE][0]['format'] = $form_state['values']['comment_body'][LANGUAGE_NONE][0]['format'];

  • Even with this line, it save me an empty value. Maybe something to know, when in my validate I put a form_set_error in $form_state['values']['comment_body'] == '' it doesn't pass even if i let the comment input form empty. – guish Apr 13 '17 at 16:22
  • And you've confirmed that the form state array contains the elements you're trying to access? – Clive Apr 13 '17 at 16:46
  • Haha, your comment gave me an illumination : it was $form_state['values']['comment_body']['value'] missed this final value so, in the submit it looks like : $comment->comment_body['und'][0]['value'] = $form_state['values']['comment_body']['value']; (same thing for format). Thanks you @Clive – guish Apr 13 '17 at 17:45
