$this->request->post['name'] post['lastname'] is not a valid php syntax.

Don't know what kind of framework you're using, but I guess $this->request->post is an array that contains all your POST values.

If lastname is a field in the POST form, then you can retrieve it by calling


If this doesn't work, then you need to provide more specific info like which framework you're using, what exactly do you need, and what error you're getting.

By the way, since you can call $this->request->post['name'], try print_r($this->request->post) to see how many POST values you can get from there.
