Data type
bool
Needed by
Frontend
Mandatory
No
Default value
false
Good to know
Description

Set this to true if the database column should not be written if the value from the submitted form element with the identifier <formElementIdentifier> is empty (think about password fields etc.).

This setting only rules for form elements which creates a FAL object like FileUpload or ImageUpload . By default, the uid of the FAL object will be written into the database column. Set this to true if you want to store the FAL identifier (1:/user_uploads/some_uploaded_pic.jpg) instead.

options.elements.<formElementIdentifier>.skipIfValueIsEmpty

Option path
TYPO3.CMS.Form.prototypes.<prototypeIdentifier>.finishersDefinition.SaveToDatabase.options.elements.<formElementIdentifier>.skipIfValueIsEmpty
Data type
bool
Needed by
Frontend
Mandatory
No
Default value
false
Good to know
Description
Set this to true if the database column should not be written if the value from the submitted form element with the identifier <formElementIdentifier> is empty (think about password fields etc.). Empty means strings without content, whitespace is valid content.

Option path
TYPO3.CMS.Form.prototypes.<prototypeIdentifier>.finishersDefinition.SaveToDatabase.options.elements.<formElementIdentifier>.dateFormat
Data type
string
Needed by
Frontend
Mandatory
No
Default value
‘U’
Good to know
Description
If the internal Datatype is DateTime which is true for the form element types “DatePicker” and “Date”, the object needs to be converted into a string value. This option allows you to define the format of the date. You can use every format accepted by PHP’s date() function ( http://php.net/manual/en/function.date.php#refsect1-function.date-parameters ). The default value is “U” which means a Unix timestamp.

options.databaseColumnMappings

Option path
TYPO3.CMS.Form.prototypes.<prototypeIdentifier>.finishersDefinition.SaveToDatabase.options.databaseColumnMappings
Data type
array
Needed by
Frontend
Mandatory
No
Default value
empty array
Good to know
Description

Use this to map database columns to static values. Each key within options.databaseColumnMappings has to match with an existing database column. The value for each key within options.databaseColumnMappings is an array with additional informations.

This mapping is done before the options.element mapping. This means if you map a database column to a value through options.databaseColumnMappings and map a submitted form element value to the same database column through options.element , the submitted form element value will override the value you set within options.databaseColumnMappings .

options.databaseColumnMappings.<databaseColumnName>.value

Option path
TYPO3.CMS.Form.prototypes.<prototypeIdentifier>.finishersDefinition.SaveToDatabase.options.databaseColumnMappings.<databaseColumnName>.value
Data type
string
Needed by
Frontend
Mandatory
Yes
Default value
undefined
Good to know
Description

The value which will be written to the database column. You can also use the FormRuntime accessor feature to access every getable property from the FormRuntime In short: use something like {<formElementIdentifier>} to get the value from the submitted form element with the identifier <formElementIdentifier> .

If you use the FormRuntime accessor feature within options.databaseColumnMappings , than the functionality is nearly equal to the the options.elements configuration variant.
