Submitting form data to SOAP webservice
July 5, 2011

Andy Smiff

Hello everyone,


I started using CForms and love it…however, my client has requested that the forms I am creating submit their data to a SOAP webservice.


Is this possible with CForms? 


I assumed that using the "Send form data to an alternative page:" option in the form admin would help with this but wanted to clarify a few issues.


  1. Can CForms still handle the field validation through AJAX if this option is used?
  2. Would I need to modify or add anything to allow the form to submit to a SOAP web service?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hey guys!

Yep, it's very possible to use CForms for SOAP transactions. I've done it a couple of different ways, but the method you use will depend on your endpoint requirements. If it's a .Net based endpoint, you'll probably want to use a cURL based method method like this: CForms to MethodCRM: Getting dirty with SOAP

If it's not strict, you can just use SoapClient in your myfunctions.php instead:

Hope that helps.
