Add Contact to Maximizer Address Book with PHP

By on March 19, 2019

The class below is an example how to post data from a web form to the address book in Maximizer. The first thing you need to do is create a Web Form in Maximizer (Administration -> Web Forms). The PHP class below uses the fields that were created for the form (your form will have different fields). The class uses the “name” from <input> in the Maximizer Web Form for the PHP SaveToAddressBook() method. You also need to pass the “action” string from the <form> to the method. When the method is called, it won’t be displayed on the web page since its hidden by CSS, and its submitted automatically by a JavaScript button press.

The Maximizer generated Web Form isn’t complicated. If you remove all of the styling and validation code, you can easily use the <input> fields in any web application. The class below only has the essential code for posting the form.

—[ code ]———————————–

<?php

class MaxLibrary
{
// This is the “action” string in the <form> declaration.
private $_action;

// These are for the <input> fields in the form.
private $_first_name;
private $_last_name;
private $_company;
private $_phone;
private $_email;

public function __construct ($action, $first_name, $last_name, $company, $phone, $email)
{
$this->_action = $action;

$this->_first_name = $first_name;
$this->_last_name = $last_name;
$this->_company = $company;
$this->_phone = $phone;
$this->_email = $email;
}

///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
// Load form with data and automatically press submit button to send data to Maximizer.
// The “name” in the <input> statements in this function must match the name in Maximizer
// generated form.

public function SaveToAddressBook ()
{
