Making a Simple Form Module on Drupal 7.8

We have created a simple module before, that is here. But if you build a web site, you'll need to use forms. For that reason, i'll show you about making a simple form module in this article. Let's remember which files we've got when we create module on drupal.

Mymodule (folder)
  • mymodule.module
"" file is for settings of the module, that's why we don't use it for this article. Other ones also are so important now.

If you check this article out, can remember what the system of drupal's work. When we code, we call the function which will use. Well, then code your and mymodule.module pages:

mymodule.module page
function honda_menu() {
  $items['honda/hrv'] = array(
    'title' => 'Honda HR-V',
    'page callback' => 'honda_form',
    'access arguments' => array('access content'),
    'file' => '',
  return $items;

As you see the bold row's got our function for the module with "page callback". honda_form() function is in; page

function honda_form() {
 return drupal_get_form('form_for_honda'); //This is the function that will use
function form_for_honda($form_state) {
 $form['text'] = array(
  '#type' => 'textfield', //Input type
  '#title' => t(Write something..'), Input label
 $form['Okey'] = array(
  '#type' => 'submit', //Input type
  '#value' => 'I am Ok!', //Button value
 return $form;

When we go to honda/hrv direction, we're going to see it like down here;


Well done! Our form is ready to use. I've just added a textfield and submit button. If you want to add something else, you should add elements for array. For example;

'#type' => 'checkbox',
'#type' => 'fieldset',
'#type' => 'file',
'#type' => 'radios',
