Issue with getting data from Elementor form

  • Got an issue with my code, See Below

    add_action( 'elementor_pro/forms/new_record',  'thewpchannel_elementor_form_create_new_user' , 10, 2 );
    function thewpchannel_elementor_form_create_new_user($record,$ajax_handler)
        $form_name = $record->get_form_settings('form_name');
        //Check that the form is the "create new user form" if not - stop and return;
        if ('Create New User' !== $form_name) {
        $form_data = $record->get_formatted_data();
        $username=$form_data['Username']; //Get the value of the input with the label "User Name"
        $password = $form_data['Password']; //Get the value of the input with the label "Password"
        $email=$form_data['Email'];  //Get the value of the input with the label "Email"
        $user = wp_create_user($username,$password,$email); // Create a new user, on success return the user_id no failure return an error object
        $user_role = new WP_User($user);
        if (is_wp_error($user)){ // if there was an error creating a new user
            $ajax_handler->add_error_message("Failed to create new user: ".$user->get_error_message()); //add the message
            $ajax_handler->is_success = false;
        $last_name=$form_data["Last Name"]; //Get the value of the input with the label "Last Name"
        $company_name=$form_data['acf']['Company Name']; // Get Company Data from form
        update_field( 'field_6182b31388dbe', $company_name, 'user_'.$user );
        wp_update_user(array("ID"=>$user,"first_name"=>$company_name,"last_name"=>$last_name)); // Update the user with the first name and last name

    Now the $company_name field isn’t working for me, I’m unable to capture anything from the form. The form is built with basic Elementor and ACF. I’ve tried the method you see, I’ve tried doing $form_data[‘field_6182b31388dbe’] and a few more variations.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated


  • HI @samnymr

    I’m not at all familiar with elementor, however, can you see if the below works:

    add_action( 'elementor_pro/forms/new_record', function( $record, $handler ) {
    	//make sure its our form
    	$form_name = $record->get_form_settings( 'form_name' );
    	if ( 'Create New User' !== $form_name ) {
    	$raw_fields = $record->get( 'fields' );
    	$fields = [];
    	$admin_email = $no_exists_value = get_option( 'admin_email' );
    	$to = $admin_email;
    	$subject = 'Test form submission data';
    	$message = 'Form data';
    	foreach ( $raw_fields as $id => $field ) {
    		$fields[ $id ] = $field['value'];
    		$message .= $field['value'];
    	$headers = 'From: My Name <[email protected]>' . "\r\n";
    	wp_mail( $to, $subject, $message, $headers );
    }, 10, 2);

    The idea being on form submission, it should email the site admin address a list of form data.
    Check whether the company name is present.

    If not, the data isn’t reaching the submission.

    If it is, you can then look to see which part may then be failing.

  • Hiya!

    User is defined when its created 🙂

    The issue seems to be around the get formatted data option

    I’ll try your method of emailing it to myself and see if that helps 🙂
