Looks like you might have to hack this one :S

The callback you found is part of this line:

<form
    method="post"
    action="<%RT->Config->Get('WebPath')%>/index.html"
% $m->callback(CallbackName => 'InFormElement');
>

I've tried what you did, and regarding callbacks thats the right way of
using them, but it doesnt seem to work.
I assume that the above line adds the QuickCreate box as an element on the
index.html page using the callback InFromElement.

So the callback you've tried was one from the index.html page...

Hacking it is done this way (well, its another polite way of doing this):

mkdir -p /opt/rt4/local/html/Elements
cp /opt/rt4/share/html/Elements/QuickCreate /opt/rt4/local/html/Elements/

After that edit the title: (I'd also remove the big text of comments at the
start, it's only a small piece of code so it makes reading a little easier)

<&| /Widgets/TitleBox, title => loc('Quick ticket creation NEW') &>

And then restart the server:

service apache2 stop && rm -rf /opt/rt4/var/mason_data/obj/* && service
apache2 start

You've now replaced the "stock" quick create box with a new one, with your
own title (just so you see the difference).

After that you can try to add the custom fields, this is the code Ruslan
used so you could try to add it in the QuickCreate code (your own) and see
if it will do what you want it to: (2 callbacks)

*BeforeUpdate*
*
*
<%ARGS>
$TicketObj
$skip_update
$results
$ARGSRef => {}
</%ARGS>
<%INIT>
return unless $ARGSRef->{'SubmitTicket'};

my $CFs = $TicketObj->CustomFields;
my $ValidCFs = $m->comp(
    '/Elements/ValidateCustomFields',
    CustomFields => $CFs,
    NamePrefix => "Object-RT::Ticket-". $TicketObj->id ."-CustomField-",
    ARGSRef => $ARGSRef
);
unless ( $ValidCFs ) {
    $$skip_update = 1;
    while (my $CF = $CFs->Next) {
        my $msg = $m->notes('InvalidField-' . $CF->Id) or next;
        push @$results, loc($CF->Name) . ': ' . $msg;
    }
}

*AfterWorked*
*
*
<& /Ticket/Elements/EditCustomFields,
    TicketObj => $Ticket,
    InTable => 1,
    DefaultsFromTopArguments => 0,
&>
<%ARGS>
$Ticket

This code hoever assumes a ticket is already in a certain queue, and then
gets the custom fields associated with it.
Since you're making a ticket, it's not yet in a queue, which makes it hard
to lookup which CF it "could" set.

So here you might have to take the piece of code inside the while loop and
manually define the CF's you want in there.
