Is there a way to add information to the post request which will be sent when I press the "save product" button? I have added some custom things to the product I need to transmit in order to process them (using the catalog_product_prepare_save event).
I have a dropdown menu next to a button, and when I press that button, I need to transmit the content of the dropdown via the request array so that I can receive the option selected in the observer I have registered.

Thanks a lot in advance

EDIT: I have a feeling there is something completely wrong about the way I'm approaching this, a nudge in the right direction would be much appreciated, I'm quite stuck atm.

  • why dont to go for event observer?. Dec 8, 2014 at 5:14
  • @Manik well, I have an event observer, but with that, I can only get the php request data (obviously). The things I need to process though are on the page. My question now is how I can somehow put this data I got into the php request in order to handle it with an observer

  • maybe I got you wrong, but shouldn't you already get it in the Post array if you named your select (as in name="myselect")? Dec 8, 2014 at 14:57

It's purely PHP-related I think, just name your select like this :

<select name="myselect">.....</select>

And you should be able to retrieve it like this
