    Code first form fields disappear/reappear on app restart

    Hi,

    I have a strange issue with code first forms that only occurs when the application restarts.

    If the form doesn't exist, then it is created just fine, but when the app restarts for any reason (app pool recycle, web.config change, new assembly etc.) all of the form fields disappear from the front and back end. The form is still there, but none of the fields are. Another restart brings them back.

    Anyone encountered this before?

    Greg.

    Hi Tim,

    Umbraco: 6.1.6
    Contour: 3.0.19

    Here's a screencast from a brand new installation of Umbraco/Contour: http://screencast.com/t/zHm3K5vzv86u

    It's a really basic codefirst form, just the 2 fields. In my other project I have a custom form field which I first suspected was the culprit, but this confirms it's not that.

    using System;
    using System.Collections.Generic;
    using System.Linq;
    using System.Text;
    using Umbraco.Forms.Core;
    using Umbraco.Forms.CodeFirst;
    using Umbraco.Forms.Core.Providers.FieldTypes;
    using Umbraco.Forms.Data.Storage;
    using System.Configuration;
    
    namespace WebApplication1.Definitions
    {
        [Form("LoginForm", ShowValidationSummary = false,
            DisableDefaultStylesheet = true,
            StoreRecordsLocally = false)]
        public class LoginForm : FormBase
        {
            [Field("Log in", "", Caption = "Email Address",
                Mandatory = true,
                Regex = @"(\w[-._\w]*\w@\w[-._\w]*\w\.\w{2,3})")]
            public string Username { get; set; }
    
            [Field("Log in", "",
                Type = typeof(Password),
                Mandatory = true)]
            public string Password { get; set; }
    
            public override IEnumerable<Exception> Validate()
            {
                var e = new List<Exception>();
    
                return e;
            }
    
            public override void Submit()
            {
                System.Web.HttpContext.Current.Response.Redirect(umbraco.library.NiceUrl(1047) + "?done=true");
            }
        }
    }
    
    Greg.

    We're experiencing the same thing using Umbraco 4.11.8 and Contour 3.0.12, we didn't notice this issue, but were made aware of it a week ago, as with Greg, an App Restart will actually make this work for an unspecified amount of time, after which the content disappears.

    Is there any news about this Tim?

    Hi Tim

    Any news on this issue?

    I've noticed fields missing on some of my codefirst forms when I upgraded a project from u4.11 to u7.1.1.

    Need a resolution to this fairly pronto.

    Kind regards

    Martin

    Hi Tim

    I've noticed when codefirst forms are pulled into umbraco 7 for the first time you have to remove the two entries in the web.config otherwise i get a YSOD. They get put back in once the app has restarted. I'm not sure if this is related?

    My install has quite a few code first forms and it seems pretty random which ones are missing fields, I cannot see anything obvious. Is it possible (at least in the case of u7) it could be some kind of agressive caching problem?

    You've come through in the past for me when I needed prompt attention to the contour codebase...dont let me down ;-)

    Thanks 

    Martin

    Only syncing when in debug mode and not trying to sync otherwise would that be an option?

    And you are sure a content editor hasn't changed the forms?

    Hi Tim

    I've tried running up my local instance with debugging enabled and disabled and it doesnt make any difference. Lots of forms with holes either way.

    Hi Tim

    I've just taken a look at the UFFields table and it's missing rows. So the import process on application start isnt working correctly.

    One last thing Tim, what's the significance of the two ContourFormBuilderHttpModule web.config entries needing to be missing on first start? Is there any other way this can be achieved? It seems a bit scrappy that I have to remember to remove them on first import.

    @Martin thanks, that way it's easier to keep track :)

    For the missing fields could you give http://nightly.umbraco.org/Umbraco%20Contour/3.0.21/ a try

    And let me know if that fixes it (should also fix a YSOD you can get when first importing the form)

    AWESOME! fields back to normal no YSOD!

    I was hoping to attend CG14 but family pressures mean i've had to dip out another year! :-(

    When I finally get the chance to attend CodeGarden, I owe you quite a few beers!

    All the best

    Martin
