Is there a Hook / Filter to manipulate form output?

  1. Hey,

    While styling my contact form page, I need to add a container element around the select (dropdown), or modify the <div class="ginput_container"> code where the element contained within is a dropdown.

    Is there a hook or filter that would help me to do this, specifically only for dropdown elements?

    i.e. The current output looks like:

    <li class="gfield gfield_contains_required" id="field_1_4">
        <label for="input_1_4" class="gfield_label">Drop Down<span class="gfield_required">*</span></label>
        <div class="ginput_container">
            <select tabindex="13" class="medium gfield_select" id="input_1_4" name="input_4">
                <option value="First Choice">First Choice</option>
                <option value="Second Choice">Second Choice</option>
                <option value="Third Choice">Third Choice</option>
            </select>
        </div>
    </li>

    I need it to look like this:

    <li class="gfield gfield_contains_required" id="field_1_4">
        <label for="input_1_4" class="gfield_label">Drop Down<span class="gfield_required">*</span></label>
        <div class="ginput_container select-wrapper">
            <select tabindex="13" class="medium gfield_select" id="input_1_4" name="input_4">
                <option value="First Choice">First Choice</option>
                <option value="Second Choice">Second Choice</option>
                <option value="Third Choice">Third Choice</option>
            </select>
        </div>
    </li>

    or this:

    <li class="gfield gfield_contains_required" id="field_1_4">
        <label for="input_1_4" class="gfield_label">Drop Down<span class="gfield_required">*</span></label>
        <div class="ginput_container">
         <div class="select-wrapper">
            <select tabindex="13" class="medium gfield_select" id="input_1_4" name="input_4">
                <option value="First Choice">First Choice</option>
                <option value="Second Choice">Second Choice</option>
                <option value="Third Choice">Third Choice</option>
            </select>
        </div>
        </div>
    </li>

    I know this can probably be done with jQuery if not by modifying the output with a hook / filter, but I don't know how to do this.

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

  2. Hi James,

    Take a look at this hook:

    It gives you the ability to complete rewrite the ouputted HTML for a field.
