    I use onBeforeInsert in my table_edit.php to generate a value which should be added to the database (will come from another subsystem so it's not available during the form input).

    currently i do the following but thing there is a better solution .

    function onBeforeInsert()
                  global $app 
                  $app->tform->errorMessage = myfunction($_POST) ;
                  $this->dataRecord['value'] = $_SESSION['value'] ;
                  unset ($_SESSION['value']) ;
    global $_SESSION ;
    if (ok) 
    $_SESSION['value'] = "foo";
    return "error foo :-(" ;

    May you describe a bit more what you try to do. ISPConfig has various methods to validate and filter user input incl. custom validators and custom datasources for values. A custom validator or custom datasource is a php class which can handle nearly any kind of value and the validators and datasources are just configured in the tform file, there is no overriding of onBeforeInsert nescessary then.

    I have a form with Value A and B

    What i tried to find out was how to :

    Entering Value A into a form --> submit the form --> use onBeforeInsert function in myform_edit.php to generate Value B and store this into the table.

    So Value B is not entered by the user but generate by ispconfig.

    I found that i simply can use $page->dataRecord['B'] = $result['object'] ; to fill B.

    Yes, thats correct. If B is defined in the tform file as table field, you can set B in dataRecord in any event function that gets executed before the insert or update happens.
