Limiting Form Submission

×Warning: This tutorial was created 2579 days ago. Some of the information may be out of date with more recent versions of Formidable. Please proceed with caution and always perform a backup before adding custom code.

The code below uses the php switch statement (a case structure) to evaluate certain forms to determine if they hit their limit. The echo command lets me output alternate actions if the limit is reached. If the form limit has been reached, the page displays options for the user to select. In the example, I've noted a wait list page which would display another form.

'add_action('frm_display_form_action', 'limit_entry_count', 8, 3);
function limit_entry_count($params, $fields, $form){
remove_filter('frm_continue_to_new', '__return_false', 50);
$count = FrmEntry::getRecordCount($form->id);     // Gets the record count for the current form
switch ($form->id) {
case 25:    // Evaluates for Form 25
if ( $count > 25 ) { //sets a limit for 25 submissions. You could also use >=26
echo '

add_filter('frm_continue_to_new', '__return_false', 50);
}
break;
case 26:
if ( $count > 10 ) { //sets a limit for 10 submissions. You could also use >=11
echo '

add_filter('frm_continue_to_new', '__return_false', 50);
}
