ALRA1 created the topic: Adding Form Name to checkbox item

I am reposting here as the last one I posted never got published

I am suddenly running into a problem with adding a form name to a value into a checkbox item as recommended at this post:


Up until recently, the code below worked fine in a check box value (0;Title 1;value1), where Title was replace by:
<?php return htmlentities(JFactory::getDocument()->getTitle());?>

as in 0;<?php return htmlentities(JFactory::getDocument()->getTitle());?>;Confirmed

I am running a site with Joomla 3.911 and PHP 7.2x - Could this be the problem?

What I want to achieve is the ability to add the form name as a value in a checkbox without actually manually adding it

Is there another way to code the file name as a value is this option is no longer possible?

Can you please test whether the checkbox title gets filled in when you just Preview the form in backend.

I have tested this and it seems to be working fine for me.
I am using Joomla! 3.9.13 Stable, PHP/7.3.0, BreezingForms 1.9.0 Stable (build 931).

That is the code that should do what you want, fill the title with the Title of your form.
If this doesn't work for you, even though it should, you will have to enter it manually.
