<?php

/*
* Example PHP implementation used for the index.html example
*/

// DataTables PHP library
include( "../lib/DataTables.php" );

// Alias Editor classes so they are easy to use
use
DataTables\Editor,
DataTables\Editor\Field,
DataTables\Editor\Format,
DataTables\Editor\Mjoin,
DataTables\Editor\Options,
DataTables\Editor\Upload,
DataTables\Editor\Validate,
DataTables\Editor\ValidateOptions;
...
$ok = "John Doe"; // I want to pass this value to my sa_added_by_id field
...
// Build our Editor instance and process the data coming from _POST
Editor::inst( $db, 'social_activity ' )
->fields(
Field::inst( 'sa_title' )
->validator( Validate::notEmpty( ValidateOptions::inst()
->message( 'A title is required' )
) ),
Field::inst( 'sa_place' )
->validator( Validate::notEmpty( ValidateOptions::inst()
->message( 'A place name is required' )
) ),
Field::inst( 'sa_activity_type' ),

    Field::inst( 'sa_lat' )
        ->validator( Validate::numeric() )
        ->setFormatter( Format::ifEmpty(null) ),
    Field::inst( 'sa_lng' )
        ->validator( Validate::numeric() )
        ->setFormatter( Format::ifEmpty(null) ),
    Field::inst( 'sa_date' )
        ->validator( Validate::dateFormat( 'Y-m-d' ) )
        ->getFormatter( Format::dateSqlToFormat( 'Y-m-d' ) )
        ->setFormatter( Format::dateFormatToSql('Y-m-d' ) )
)
->debug(true)
->process( $_POST )

    On the client-side you can use preSubmit to modify the data being submitted to the server-side. However, it would be best to use the user session information you'll likely have at the server-side (I assume?) so as to ensure the data is accurate. The server-side events can be used for that. Specifically, have a look at this section.

    Yes, with PHP you need to tell it that you want to make a variable from a higher scope available in an anonymous function:

    function ( $editor, $id, &$values ) use ( $ok ) {
    

    Move details available in the PHP manual (example 3 on that page).
