SOLVED!! How can you make form_set_error() affect the only form submitted?

Drupal form_set_error() function provide validation message based field name. So if you have same field name in same page , after the submission you can see both fields are marked as red color(Error class). It validate or show message for right form but it provide error class for all element which are same.

I found a way to solve it. If you render those form using drupal_get_form then you can add one extra line in top to get rid of this problem.

for example :-

drupal_static_reset('form_set_error'); // adding this line makes you life out of hell.-)
$form = drupal_get_form('webform_client_form', $node, $submission);
return drupal_render($form);

Creating custom filters with drupal and views

If you want to know how to create custom filters with Drupal and view please follow the step from the link

But you need to remember some missing information :-

it is done in views api 2 , so function definition you need to change. for example

$this->query->add_where($this->options[‘group’], “term_node.tid = %d”, $value); should be

$this->query->add_where($this->options[‘group’], “term_node.tid”, $value,’=’);

ofcourse remember to add those files inside file, otherwise you will see broken handlers in your view.

Floating a textfield next to a radio button in Drupal form

This can actually be done entirely with the Forms API. Here is an example:


// This will mimic the normal form element title as well as provide the group for our radio options.
$form[‘nations’] = array(
‘#type’ => ‘item’,
‘#title’ => t(‘Nationality’),
‘#description’ => t(‘<Enter your field description here.>’)
$form[‘nations’][‘american’] = array(
‘#type’ => ‘radio’,
‘#title’ => t(‘American’),
‘#default_value’ => 1,                    // If there is a default value, this should also be specified for each radio button.
‘#return_value’ => 1,
‘#parents’ => array(‘nations’),           // You must specify this for each radio button for them to act as a group.
‘#prefix’ => ‘<div>’  // The first radio button needs to make the style match a normal radios group.
$form[‘nations’][‘german’] = array(
‘#type’ => ‘radio’,
‘#title’ => t(‘German’),
‘#return_value’ => 2,
‘#default_value’ => 1,
‘#parents’ => array(‘nations’)
$form[‘nations’][‘other’] = array(
// The ‘container-inline’ class places elements next to each other, while the ‘form-item’ class provides the correct spacing between options.
‘#prefix’ => ‘<div>’,
‘#suffix’ => ‘</div>’
// By supplying the title here, instead of using the ‘#field_prefix’ property of the textfield, clicking the text will also select the radio button.
$form[‘nations’][‘other’][‘other_option’] = array(
‘#type’ => ‘radio’,
‘#title’ => t(‘Other:’),
‘#return_value’ => 3,
‘#default_value’ => 1,
‘#parents’ => array(‘nations’)
$form[‘nations’][‘other’][‘other_textfield’] = array(
‘#type’ => ‘textfield’,
‘#default_value’ => ”,
‘#size’ => 20,         // The default size is a bit large…
‘#suffix’ => ‘</div>’  // End of the “form-radios” style.

In your validation and/or submit callbacks, the selected radio option will then be in $form_state['values']['nations'] and the textfield value will be in $form_state['values']['other_textfield'].

With a little more work, you can change the example so that you don’t have to create each element manually .-)

How To Disable Custom Panel Page Programmatically?

You can automatically disabled custom panel page  via hook_update_N.  After little digging around in CTools module codebase, I ended up with the following code snippet.

$page = page_manager_get_page_cache('<page_name>'); // Replace <page_name> 
$function = ctools_plugin_get_function($page->subtask, 'enable callback');
$result = $function($page, TRUE);

Hook function for email_registration drupal module

Some of the site needs email as sername for their Drupal site. Email Registration module helps to get rid of that problem.
but  it saves username from the email address whatever that is before @.

example :  save username as : takim.islam

Many people might think , they can update their username from hook_user case ‘Insert’ , but it will not work.
They actually dont need to do anything such that. Because there is already a hook function hook_email_registration_name($edit, $account)
which people can implement from their own module like :

mymodule_email_registration_name($edit, $account)

$string = ‘Takim Islam’; // or replace with any value from $account / $edit

return $string;


Thats it, your problem is solved!

Multiblock Module

Drupal’s block module is limited by the fact that a block can only have one instance. Each block has a 1:1 relationship with its region, weight, visibility (and other) settings. This means that it is impossible to have blocks in multiple regions or to have blocks that have different settings on different pages.  MultiBlock module solves this problem by allowing you to create multiple Block Instances of already existing blocks.
