Here is what I need to achieve:

  1. There is field "linkedIn url" in user's profile entity.
  2. There is Event registration form on the website.
  3. In the Event Registration form I would like to render field "linkedIn url" with value from the user's profile entity.
  4. When user submits the Event Registration I want to save a value of the field to the database (to user profile entity of course).

Any suggestions? thx!


EDIT: I implemented this functionality. For those interested, complete source code is below: (Note that I'm saving data to profile2!)

/**
*
* Implements hook_form_alter
*
*/
function MYMODULE_form_alter(&$form, &$form_state, $form_id) {
    global $user;
    if ($form_id == 'registration_form') {
            $profile = profile2_load_by_user($user->uid); // Load profile2 data
            if ($profile['main']->field_linkedin_url) {
                $linkedin_url = $profile['main']->field_linkedin_url['und'][0]['value'];
            } 
            $form['linkedin_url'] = array( // Add field to form
                '#type' => 'textfield',
                '#title' => t('Your LinkedIn profile'),
                '#default_value' => isset($linkedin_url) ? $linkedin_url : '',
                '#maxlength' => 255,
                '#size' => 60,              
                '#description' => t('Please enter your LinkedIn profile URL'),
                '#weight' => 10,
            );          
            $form['#submit'][] = 'entity_registration_custom_registration_form_submit'; // Call custom submit handler

    }
}


/**
*
* Custom Form Submit Handler
*
*/
function  MYMODULE_MYFORM_submit($form, &$form_state){
    global $user;
    $profile = profile2_load_by_user($user->uid); // Load profile2 data
    $profile['main']->field_linkedin_url['und'][0]['value'] =  $form_state['values']['linkedin_url']; // Set new value for Profile2 field
    profile2_save($profile['main']);
    drupal_set_message(t('Submit handler works!'));
}

You have to modify your form in a hook_form_alter : and the linked_in url will appear in the event registration form

function mymodule_form_alter(&$form, &$form_state, $form_id){
   if ($form_id == 'eventregistration_node_form'){

      // Find the user obj
      global $user;
      // Load all profile fields
      $account = user_load($user->uid);
      // Add the linked_in url in the event registration form
      // Supposing your field madhine name is ; linkedin_url
      // Supposing you use the link module for this field (if not, change ['url'] to ['value']
      $form['linkedin_url']['und'][0]['url']['#default_value'] = $user->linkedin_url['und'][0]['url'];
   }
}

If you don't want to expose the linked_in field during the form do this :

function mymodule_form_alter(&$form, &$form_state, $form_id){
   if ($form_id == 'eventregistration_node_form'){
     // Hide your field
     $form['linkedin_url'][und]['#access']  = false;
     //Add another submit function
      $form['actions']['submit']['#validate'][] = 'mymodule_eventregistration_validate_form_alter';
   }
}

// Your submit function
function mymodule_eventregistration_validate_form_alter($form, $form_alter){

     // Find the user obj
      global $user;
      // Load all profile fields
      $account = user_load($user->uid);
      // Add the linked_in url in the event registration form
      // Supposing your field madhine name is ; linkedin_url
      // Supposing you use the link module for this field (if not, change ['url'] to ['value']
      $linkedin_url = $user->linkedin_url['und'][0]['url'];

    form_set_value($form['linkedin_url'], array('und' => array(0 => array('url' => $linkedin_url))), $form_state);
}
  • that's great! Thx for pointing me in the right direction. As far as I understand, the above's example saves the linkedin_url to the event node, but I want linkedin_url to be saved to User entity instead. What hook can I use for that? Also how can I avoid saving linkedin_url to event node? THX! – Antonio Nov 11 '13 at 2:21

    In this case, use the second example and add not a 'validate' function, but a 'submit' function. Il this submit function, load the user ($account = user_load($user->uid)) and add the linked_in url from the form value ($account-> linkedin_url['und'][0]['url'] = $form_state['values']['linkedin_url']['und'][0]['url']), and save the user (user_save($account)); – bobylapointe Nov 11 '13 at 7:50
  • That's it! Thank you bobylapointe! You are the man! :) – Antonio Nov 11 '13 at 15:36
