I am building a custom module. In my module I have a form function which basically creates the form.

When this form is submitted, I want the form to return to a specific URL.

I have added a 'RET' hidden field to the form with the correct URL, but I am unsure how to have the form actual use this. Can anyone show me what I need to add to my existing code to achieve this.

public function form() 
    $entry_id = $this->EE->TMPL->fetch_param('entry_id');
    if( $entry_id === FALSE ) {
        return "";

    $return = $this->EE->TMPL->fetch_param('return');

    $hidden_fields = array(
        "entry_id" => $entry_id,
        "ACT" => $this->EE->functions->fetch_action_id( 'Cdwd_waiting_list', 'submit_record' ),     
        "RET" => $return   

    $form_data = array(
        "id" => $this->EE->TMPL->form_id,
        "class" => $this->EE->TMPL->form_class,
        "hidden_fields" => $hidden_fields

    $tagdata = $this->EE->TMPL->tagdata;

    $form = $this->EE->functions->form_declaration($form_data) . 
        $tagdata . "</form>";

    return $form;

Inside of your submit_record method (of your Cdwd_waiting_list class), you'll need to add something like this (after you've done everything else you need to with the form submission):
