Customization to Event Reg Form

I have read /topic/customizing-the-user-registration-form-and-emails/ and we have a similar issue.

  • WP User integration active
  • Have the No Sync active (to prevent WP user changes accidentally)

What our client would like is to disable entry on the Registration form I am wondering if I can use similar hooks to just add the “Disabled” element to the input forms. Or if we can copy a template into our child theme the problem is so far I have not found the template that needs to be updated.

Will either of these work, I preferred not to add additional JS and CSS doesn’t apply the disabled

Hi there,

When the form input is generated there are a couple of filters available:


Which as the name suggests is passed to the input’s constructor and you can set disabled to true there.

Or FHEE__EE_Question__generate_form_input__return which filters the form input object itself, so you can run the disabled method on it yourself.

Note that you’re going to need to check that you are disabling the correct inputs and not just all when doing this.

I seem to not be as smart as I think :). I’m wondering if you have any examples or scenarios that I might be able to use to learn how to do this. I would like to learn but I am stuck here.

Thank you,

I don’t have any examples of disabling inputs, but I do have an example of using the FHEE__EE_SPCO_Reg_Step_Attendee_Information___generate_question_input__input_constructor_args hook here:

Setting the constructor arg ‘disabled’ to true should disable the input.

Does that help?
