    Umbraco Forms - Adding a Custom Workflow

    I've just gone through the documentation on Umbraco Forms (even creating a pull request to fix typos and update a couple of bits) but I'm not sure what I've come up with on creating a Workflow is correct.

    The documentation is here:

    The code there looks to be either a bit out of date or I'm missing some using directives (or both) as it doesn't seem to work. I suspect it's out of date as it uses Log.Add rather than Umbraco.Core.Logging.LogHelper. Also the RecordService doesn't seem to accept a parameter now (I've modified this by passing the record and form in the delete method.. though there doesn't seem to be a Dispose method).

    Basically is what I've come up with correct or bat-muck crazy?  After all this messing around my solution builds but when I try to add the workflow an exception is thrown about WorkflowController.cs not found?

    Has anyone got any tips on this please?
