Bypass a db Save action

chriso0258 31 Jul, 2015

On my form I have a textarea box where a user can add comments. In my on Submit event I have a db Save action to save the comments to a table I've set up to store them. The table includes a foreign key to another table as well as the date the form was submitted. A user may not always write a note when completing the form but because of the db Save action, a new record gets created in the comments table when the form is submitted. Is there a way I can bypass the db Save action if the is nothing written in the note box of the form?

Thanks for your insights.

Hi chriso0258,

Use an Event switcher action; change the event list to say save_comment, save the action. Add PHP like this
if ( !empty($form->data['comment']) ) {
  return 'save_comment';
Add your second DB Save action to the new save_comment event in the Event Switcher.
