Hook triggers after invoice is sent - please HELP!

Recommended Posts

Hello,

i have this problem which i think appeared after the upgrade from WHMCS v7 to v8:

i have a hook at /includes/hooks/invoice_date.php that modifies the final invoice date to be the actual time of marking the invoice paid, instead of the proforma generation date:

<?php
function proformainvoicepaiddate($vars) {
$invoiceid=$vars["invoiceid"];

update_query("tblinvoices",array("date"=>"now()"),array("id"=>$invoiceid));
}
add_hook("InvoicePaid",0,"proformainvoicepaiddate","");
?>

The hook works but it's getting triggered after the PDF invoice email is sent to the client.

So the WHMCS sends the email to the client, then the hook runs. The client gets the invoice with the wrong date (the proforma first generation date) and only after this, the hook changes the date on the final invoice.
This way in WHMCS i get one date for the final invoice and the client receives an email with a different date for the same invoice. This is illegal in my country.

Can you please help me find a workaround for this, i mean getting the hook triggered before the email is sent to the customer?

I know now there is a hook-point called EmailPreSend that runs prior to any templated email being sent but i don't know how to implement it, i am not a PHP programmer.

Any help here, please?

Thanks.

Hello bro,

You can try using this hook here: https://developers.whmcs.com/hooks-reference/invoices-and-quotes/#invoicepaidpreemail
It will trigger once the Invoice is marked as Paid and before the email send.

Try this one:

<?php
function proformainvoicepaiddate($vars) {
	$invoiceid = $vars["invoiceid"];

	update_query("tblinvoices", array("date" => "now()"), array("id" => $invoiceid));
}

add_hook("InvoicePaidPreEmail", 0, "proformainvoicepaiddate","");
?>

That worked.

Thanks Andrezzz!
