I'd like to modify the html of a form field from hook_form_alter(). Any hook for this one? enter image description here

    Yes, that would be hook_form_alter(), as you've said. If you're having trouble implementing hook_form_alter(), it's very important that you edit the question to include your code, and describe exactly what isn't working. We can't write it for you, as I'm sure you know. Thanks – Clive Nov 28 '13 at 13:35
  • yes but in practice how do I change it? I've uploaded a screenshot of the structure. The issue us how to overwrite the field_multiple_value_form. When I tried to add another function at #theme the page was not respoding – Potney Switters Nov 28 '13 at 13:39

    See the answers to this question for a couple of different methods. – Clive Nov 28 '13 at 13:42

Your question itself the answer, inside hook_form_alter use the following

$form['field_job']['und'][0]['#prefix'] = 'yours html'

and $form['field_job']['und'][0]['#suffix']='yours close tags of html' this html will wrap field.


you just need implement hook_form_alter in your custom field and according drupal form api change what you want :

notice "&" before $from(call by refrence)

get your form id by view source of you page and search form <from .... id="your-form-name" ..../>

function youmoudle_form_alter(&$form,$form_state,$form_id){

// your change come here
