I am in need to theme webform in D7.

How can I do that ?

In the search I've come to know that by using web-form-nid.tpl.php we are able to theme a drupal individual form.

Could any one guide me in this case to theme a webform.

You can theme a individual webform using webform-form-nid.tpl.php.

For example if our webform node id is 7 , create a template file namely webform-form-7.tpl.php and place it in your theme folder. Clear site cache.

Do a print_r($form); to see all the elements. Then render each elements in file within your html elements.

    <?php print drupal_render($form['submitted']['name']); ?>

As @Patrick Kenny said read the theming.txt, it explain all aspects of theming a webform

  • I can't figure out how to render the submit button, please can you help – Matt Saunders Dec 23 '15 at 17:35
  • Can you specify what have been you tried so far and where you struck at? The submit button can render by something like this <?php print render(drupal_render($form['submit'])); ?> Do a print_r($form); for better understanding. – Anoop Joseph Dec 29 '15 at 6:11

    Or, alternatively, to render submit, you can just do: <?php print drupal_render_children($form); ?>. It will render everything else that you haven't specifically rendered, which for my form I'm working on now is just the submit button. – ProGrammar Mar 10 '17 at 21:09

If you know the .tpl.php filename, here is what you do:

  • Create empty file with that name in your theme. Element it was supposed to template disappeared? Good.
  • Put simple html tag and see if it is displayed in place of your element. It is? Great, you have correct template file.
  • See all variables you can use: place <pre><?php print_r(get_defined_vars()); ?></pre> in your template.
  • Now when you have a file and data structure, just do it!
