gform_post_data filter not firing

    I am trying to change the post type of the form data but it seems like gform_post_data is not firing at all. The file is included while execution i.e. a die() in the file halts everything but inside the function nothing is executed, so I think gform_post_data filter is not even firing on my setup.

    add_filter( "gform_post_data", "ft_gf_change_post_type", 10, 2 );
    
    function ft_gf_change_post_type( $post_data, $form ) {
    	$post_data["post_type"] = "job";
    	return $post_data;
    }

    Also on Gist: https://gist.github.com/1363676

    P.S. I have gone through the forums a lot, the same filter is working for everyone but not me. Any suggestions what could be failing here?

    I have solved the problem, the form needs to have atleast one of the post related field on the form (you can add a hideme class to hide using jQuery it if you don't need it), then only it triggers the code to save it in custom post type.

    I have this code working now:

    add_filter( "gform_post_data", "ft_gf_change_post_type", 10, 2 );
    
    function ft_gf_change_post_type( $post_data, $form ) {
    	$does_form_saves_as_post = false;
    
    	foreach ( $form["fields"] as $field ) {
    		if ( in_array( $field["type"], array( "post_category", "post_title", "post_content", "post_excerpt", "post_tags", "post_custom_fields", "post_image" ) ) )
    			$does_form_saves_as_post = true;
    	}
    
    	if ( $does_form_saves_as_post )
    		$post_data['post_type'] = 'job';
    
    	return $post_data;
    }
