Event: OnDocFormRender

Fires after a Resource editing form is loaded in the manager. Useful for inserting HTML into forms, and as of 2.4 for setting several default values on new resources

Service: 1 - Parser Service Events Group: Documents

Event Parameters

Name Description
mode Either 'new' or 'upd', depending on the circumstance.
resource A reference to the modResource object. Since 2.4, this will contain an empty resource object when creating a new resource. Before 2.4 this would be null.
id The ID of the Resource. Will be 0 for new Resources.

Setting Default Resource Values

As of Revolution 2.4.0, you can use a plugin OnDocFormRender for setting a value for one of the following fields:

  • pagetitle
  • longtitle
  • description
  • introtext
  • content
  • link_attributes
  • alias
  • menutitle

It is advised to only do this on new resources, as any values you set will override existing resource values.

Here is how you might use it:

switch ($modx->event->name) {
  case 'OnDocFormRender':
    if ($mode === 'new') {
      $resource->set('pagetitle', 'This is a default pagetitle');
