function hook_node_submit

7.x node.api.php hook_node_submit($node, $form, &$form_state)

Act on a node after validated form values have been copied to it.

This hook is invoked when a node form is submitted with either the "Save" or "Preview" button, after form values have been copied to the form state's node object, but before the node is saved or previewed. It is a chance for modules to adjust the node's properties from what they are simply after a copy from $form_state['values']. This hook is intended for adjusting non-field-related properties. See hook_field_attach_submit() for customizing field-related properties.


$node: The node object being updated in response to a form submission.

$form: The form being used to edit the node.

$form_state: The form state array.
