when a form action takes place, it posts the fields and also redirects to that page, right? I need to make a custom form do the same, I have successfully made it post the fields in my drupal 8 custom module , using an http request with guzzle, but how do i make it redirect simultaneously as well?

In your submit handler:

$form_state->setRedirect($route_name, $parameters, $options);

Or if you have a URL object:



  • Hi thanks, if I just have the URL as a string, what parameters and options do I have to put in? – Diana May 5 '17 at 15:03
  • 1
    Something like $url = \Drupal\Core\Url::fromUri('http://google.com'); – Clive May 5 '17 at 15:07
  • I gott this error Redirects to external URLs are not allowed by default, use \Drupal\Core\Routing\TrustedRedirectResponse for it. – Diana May 5 '17 at 15:10
  • Oh yeah, I forgot about the unwilling API. See this comment: drupal.org/node/2599342#comment-10484496 for a code example, but read the rest of the issue for context too – Clive May 5 '17 at 15:13
  • I tried this but my response is a guzzle object, so it doesnt like it $form_state->setResponse($response); – Diana May 5 '17 at 15:23
