I have prepared a form using Drupal form API. Now how can I insert the form values when I click the submit button by using db_insert()?

$form['totp'] = array(
    '#title' => t('Title of the Programme'),
    '#type' => 'textfield',
    '#required' => TRUE,
    '#maxlength' => 250, 
    '#size' => 50,    

$form['pd'] = array(
    '#type' => 'radios',
    '#title' => t('Programme Day'),
    '#required' => TRUE,
    '#options' => array(
        0 => 'One Day Programme',
        1 => 'Two or More Day Programmes'

The above values to be stored in MySQL table?


You would need to add a custom form submit handler.

$form['#submit'][] = 'mymodule_custom_form_submit';

Then, in the function, use $form_state['values'];

function mymodule_custom_form_submit($form, $form_state){
            'totp' => $form_state['values']['totp'], 
            'pd' => $form_state['values']['pd']

    +1. If your form function is "my_custom_form", "my_custom_form_submit" will be called automatically so no need to add submit handler manually. – AKS Jan 31 '13 at 5:44
