I’ve just recently implemented your suggestion. Yet, as @socki03 has correctly indicated,
field['name'] does not yield the correct result. If I recall correctly it actually returns the whole object array.
His suggestion of using strpos didn’t seem quite right to me (no disrespect) so I’ve done this.
if ($field['key'] == 'field_524561acf76e5')
This seems kosher (I hope) but hard-coding the field key seems to not be ideal. If I had to recreate that field (on another server for example) I’d have to update the key I imagine.
Is there a way a specific field can be targeted using the field name?
