I'm an Umbraco noob here but I'm sure I'm probably not the first person who's asked this - I just can't find anything on it...
I have a contact form on a page with a submit button on it, nothing complicated, just emails a mailbox.
So using Visual Studio it works as expected, but obviously when I move to Umbraco there is no contact.aspx.cs file with code for the button click event.
My question is, where do I handle this event in Umbraco? Is it possible to have code behind files? Or do I need to use Macros?
If anyone can point me in the right direction I'll be much obliged.
Place uncompiled code file in the App_Code folder.. standard asp.net procedure.
As a side note, I would recommend placing your form in a usercontrol and wrapping in a macro.
Hi richard terris,
+1 for Daniel's suggestions to wrap the funcitonality in a usercontrol, then either just wrap it in a macro or directly put it on the template (like you would with any other ASP.Net user control and aspx page).
You can of course create code-behind files as well if you so wish, I made a blog post about how that works here.
+1 where? :P
I rarely place uncompiled code in App_Code.. I compile an assembly for everything... that's how I roll.
Sascha, you reference your blog spot that explains how to ceate code-behind files. Can you please resend the link as the one above goes to an unknown page.
is working on a reply...
