WFFM and Sitecore forms are quite different in their implementation and the user interface for managing the forms in Sitecore. Both provide a fairly full-featured form building module. Sitecore forms however is a lot slicker to use as a content editor and is built in a much more modern way.
However given that it’s still quite new functionally there are some ...
In Sitecore 9.0 it is not possible OOTB.
However, in Sitecore 9.1 they did announce field prefilling as a new feature so if upgrading when this version becomes available (should be very soon now) is an option I would do that.
If that is not an option, you could check the extension my colleague Bart has written: https://github.com/bartverdonck/Sitecore-...
You can relatively easily achieve this.
On the form editor navigate to Form Elements panel and find Structure accordion. There you have “Page” element. Drag-and-drop 2 pages to your form. So the first page is going to be your form with submit button, and the second one will display our thank you message.
Add submit button to the first page and don’t forget ...
Here is the answer my Sitecore community. Thanks to Sitecore Support!
Wrong Forms folder ID. Somewhere along the check-in source control travels someone must have deleted the original Forms folder, and then created a new Forms folder with a different ID. Because of this one simple change by a developer the Forms Designer was now rendered useless and ...
Sitecore Forms module on Sitecore 9 Initial release comes with only 5 Submit Actions OOTB.
Trigger Goal, Trigger Campaign Activity, Trigger Outcome, Redirect to Page and Save Data
To send email on Submit action either you can use Marketing Automation and send emails by selecting “Trigger Goal” submit action.
Else you can write Custom Save Action to Send ...
Assuming you're asking about Sitecore 9 Forms, if you have the value, you can get the selected text of a dropdown field like this:
if (field is DropDownListViewModel)
DropDownListViewModel dropdownField = field as DropDownListViewModel;
string selectedtext = dropdownField.Items.FirstOrDefault(a => a.Value == value)?.Text;
By the way, the ...
By default, no it does not. I created a simple form, added the Save Data save action and checked the database. It was not encrypted.
I'm off to dig a little deeper to find if this is a setting you can configure!
You cannot see data directly in Sitecore (except of exporting them to CSV file).
You can see stored data in SQL Server in sitecoreInstanceName_ExperienceForms database.
There are two tables:
FieldData - Here you can see actual posted data with there field name, value and field type
FormEntry - Here you can find relationship between FieldData and FormId
This is a known issue in Forms as it uses the default jQuery validation and there are no any localized scripts on custom language translations ootb. The issue is seen on the email validator - as long as jquery thinks it is a bad email, you will see the English text. After that you can see the translated text (the regex from Sitecore is different from the ...
For your requirement you can either create new Single-line text field or you can update in existing Single-line text field. I am focusing on existing one. Below are the steps:
Move to the location /sitecore/templates/System/Forms/Fields/Field and add CustomAttribute field with Single-Line Text
Switch to Core db and go to this location /sitecore/client/...
The reason your Execute() method is not being hit is due to the use of string parameter type of your SubmitActionBase. There is a check in this base class if there parameters passed from your Submit Action item are empty, and if so the action is not executed.
The solution depends on what your Submit Action is doing.
1.Override TryParse method
If you are ...
Did you make a split in you're layout between outer and inner layout?
Step 3 and 4 in documentation:
It is important because, to make sure only to load required script and styles, sitecore forms pushes scripts and ...
Sitecore Forms and WFFM are 2 different modules that happen to handle the same functionality (forms). There is no migration path available and at the moment there is no mention of anything like that either (on the contrary - when asked the Forms team said this was nowhere on the roadmap because the modules are too different).
I have a website running on 9 ...
In order to style the custom checkboxes you must have a class on parent, because CSS does not allow a parent selector. For that you can modify the View/
Go to wwwroot\[sitecore-instance]\Views\FormBuilder\FieldTemplates\CheckboxList.cshtml and in foreach loop you will get its Markup. Update it with your CSS class and add a tag enclosed
Make sure to ...
On the form item is a field Styles
You need to fill the name of your css files splitted by "|"
The files on the disk are stored on folder:
You can override the processor in forms.renderForm pipeline that parses and builds the list of files to include, and prepend the CDN url of your provider.
Create a new pipeline processor, inheriting from the existing Sitecore one and override the CreateFullFilePath method:
public class IncludeFiles : Sitecore.ExperienceForms.Mvc.Pipelines.RenderForm....
No it is not possible, xConnect is the service layer that sits in between the xDB and any trusted client, device, or interface that wants to read, write, or search xDB data. So you can not write to master,experience forms or other databases except xDB databases.
Communication is must happen over HTTPS and clients must have the appropriate certificate ...
You could check the Forms Extension my colleague Bart released: https://github.com/bartverdonck/Sitecore-Forms-Extensions. It includes a "RawHtml" field that can be used to output unescaped pure html.
Or just check that code to create your own version with a custom field that suits your needs (as the raw html is fairly simple). Documentation on how to ...
Go for Sitecore Forms. WFFM is no longer included in 9.1 so that is a dead end...
You will need to create your own submit actions (in both options btw) if you want it on this version.. If you can wait just a little longer until the actual release of Sitecore 9.1 (announced for November) you will get an ootb data prefill framework in Sitecore Forms but that ...
It's a simple answer. Because WFFM will eventually become obsolete and eventually not be included or supported with Sitecore anymore. I believe the plan is that Sitecore Forms will eventually contain all the same features that WFFM currently includes.
1. First step is to create new item under PageSettings for FormSettings in core database.
You need to add it in core database under /sitecore/client/Applications/FormsBuilder/Components/Layouts/FormSettingsPropertyGrid/PageSettings/SettingsForm item:
It needs to be created based on FormCheckBox Parameters template.
Exact path to that template:
This functionality is not available in Sitecore 9.0.1 so for 9.0.1 I wrote a temporary code till than you are not upgrading into 9.1. If you want to apply condition on radio button so you can use below code, similar code you can use for drop down:
@foreach (var item in Model.Items)
string val = item.Value;
string sectionName = string.Empty;
The order of the field is basically the order in which the fields were created. The genesis of the export is the Sitecore.ExperienceForms.Client.Controllers.ExportDataController. And this calls into the Sitecore.ExperienceForms.Data.SqlServer.SqlFormDataProvider provider.
The SQL that fetches the list is this.
This data is stored in a browser's cache and if it's there, browser doesn't send requests again to the server to get updated information.
It may happen that before some internal caches are rebuilt, you sent the first request and you receive "There are no actions to display" message.
If that's the case, clearing the browser's cache and maybe restarting the ...
This can happen for multiple reasons:
A) Missing attributes on a custom field
Solution: Make sure that the @Html.GenerateUnobtrusiveValidationAttributes(m => m.Value) attribute is present on all of your fields.
See http://madhuanbalagan.com/sitecore-9-forms-uncaught-typeerror-cannot-read-property-unobtrusive-of-undefined for details
B) jQuery is being ...
After clean installation of 9.1.1, I have the same issue. I did reindex. I checked IDs.
But I suppose issue is somewhere else. This is from search log:
35448 16:58:48 ERROR Solr Error : ["undefined field is_template"] - Query attempted: [(((((_content:(**) OR _name:(**) OR _displayname:(**)) AND (is_template:(1) AND _latestversion:(1))) AND _path:(...
You should check that your message is "Automated" and "Active". You can do this in 2 ways:
in the Content Editor check the System section of your message item :
or, and better, in EXM:
Go to the "automated email campaigns" in the main navigation on the left
Find your message (it should be in there if it was an automated one)
Click the message to go to ...
I got this to work using a different approach. I implemented ISubmitAction and the ExecuteAction() method.
I then add an FormActionError.ErrorMessage if the submit action fails.
I hope this helps someone. I did test with and without specifying the assembly name as mentioned by Peter but believe if you are using Helix you do need it.
I received feedback from Sitecore support:
The mentioned behavior is expected because the tracker should be only triggered upon a submit as it is expensive to keep it alive after navigating to the next or previous page
So it looks that it's not a bug. Tracker is not initialized in Forms "Next" or "Previous" navigation step. To workaround it, you can ...
