# Custom field get but dont set the value in customer registration

I want to know how to solve this issue, I have a problem with the saving value of the custom attribute, i referred to this tutorial .I had done the same thing as the tutorial thats why I didn't put my code. So when i create or edit an account he dont save the value of this custom attribute, but when i edit it manually in a backend and i save, i can get it in front !

The field that doesn't set value:

<li>
<label for="w_telephone"><?php echo $this->__('Telephone') ?></label> <div class="input-box"> <input type="text" name="w_telephone" id="w_telephone" value="<?php echo$this->htmlEscape($this->getCustomer()->getWTelephone()) ?>" title="<?php echo$this->__('Telephone') ?>" class="input-text" />
</div>
</li>


the new one for testing:

<li>
<label for="w_pincode" class="required"><em>*</em><?php echo $this->__('Code pin') ?></label> <div class="input-box"> <input type="text" name="w_pincode" id="w_pincode" value="<?php echo$this->escapeHtml($this->getCustomer()->getWPincode()) ?>" title="<?php echo Mage::helper('core')->quoteEscape($this->__('Code pin')) ?>" class="input-text required-entry" />
</div>
</li>


I tried to add a new one for testing, this new one "w_pine" works fine but not that of before "w_telephone".

I solved my problem, i hade some lines commented in my install script

<?php
$installer =$this;

$installer->startSetup();$setup = new Mage_Eav_Model_Entity_Setup('core_setup');

$entityTypeId =$setup->getEntityTypeId('customer');
$attributeSetId =$setup->getDefaultAttributeSetId($entityTypeId);$attributeGroupId = $setup->getDefaultAttributeGroupId($entityTypeId, $attributeSetId);$installer->addAttribute("customer", "w_telephone",  array(
"type"     => "varchar",
"backend"  => "",
"label"    => "Telephone",
"input"    => "text",
"source"   => "",
"visible"  => true,
"required" => true,
"default" => "",
"frontend" => "",
"unique"     => true

));

$attribute = Mage::getSingleton("eav/config")->getAttribute("customer", "w_telephone");$setup->addAttributeToGroup(
$entityTypeId,$attributeSetId,
$attributeGroupId, 'w_telephone', '999' //sort_order );$used_in_forms=array();
//these lines start
$used_in_forms[]="adminhtml_customer";$used_in_forms[]="checkout_register";
$used_in_forms[]="customer_account_create";$used_in_forms[]="customer_account_edit";
$used_in_forms[]="adminhtml_checkout"; //these lines end$attribute->setData("used_in_forms", $used_in_forms) ->setData("is_used_for_customer_segment", true) ->setData("is_system", 0) ->setData("is_user_defined", 1) ->setData("is_visible", 1) ->setData("sort_order", 100) ;$attribute->save();
\$installer->endSetup();
