In the past few weeks there has been increasing number of requests by our clients on how to make a custom template for forms notifications. With this blog post we will create one and register it in our project so that we can customize it further as we like.
The first thing you need to do is to create an .htm file in your project which will be our custom template. Then paste the following HTML code in it:
This is the default HTML template which we can now modify as we wish. You can also find it in Sitefinity’s SDK installation folder Content->Resources->WidgetTemplates.zip. For now just add some <p> or <h1> tag with some text, so that after the registration we ensure that we have switched the default template. Then we need to set the Build Action to Embedded Resource as it needs to be resolved from an embedded assembly in the next step.
In order to register your custom template you need to create an .aspx page and use the following code in its Page_Load method:
Now build your solution and run the .aspx page in order to register the custom template. Note that you will need to run this page in the browser each time you make modifications to the template so that the new changes are applied to Sitefinity.
If our email notification settings are correct we should now receive a notification email on form submission with our custom template.
I have also uploaded an archive containing the files from the video here.
I hope you found the blog post useful. Any comments and suggestions are highly appreciated.
