    Hi there,
    i am trying to create a behaviour for “all” empty fields.
    I can’t use a default value for those fields, since our users tend to start typing after the default value – which causes it to always be present in the submitted form and making the content a bit jibberish.
    My current idea would be some custom code which iterates over all the text-fields and check if they are empty/null – and if so, changes the content to our default value.
    I’m currently stuck with understanding the datastructure(s) provided by QuForm – i don’t intend to ask you for help in developing the code – just some help understanding the right way to go.

    Is there a build-in way i can use to create this behaviour?
    Is the hook “quform_pre_process” the right one or would you recommend another one?

    How do i iterate over all of the Text/Textarea fields in my form, without listing them each by hand?
    I was looking for an attribute to iterate over (e.g. for each $field => if $field.type equals text/textarea ==> do something) – but couldn’t find one.

    Best regards
    Alcesh
