Hi Everyone,

I've tried everything to pass a simple parameter over URL to my form and it still doesnt work. My code is below. Anything I should be enabling/disabling maybe within Joomla?


// fetch the values from the URL
$myparam = base64_decode( JRequest::getVar('reff', '') );

//assign them to form elements
ff_setValue('NameField', $myparam);

Thanks everyone!!!

go to your form->Advanced->More options->Form pieces->Before form->check Custom and try this:
ff_setValue('NameField', $myparam);

Please replace NameField with name of your element in which you want to set value (not title).

Let me know if it helps
