Attach all files from a folder to an email sent from forms for editor email

Hi

Is it possible - in a razor template - to attach all files from a certain folder to an email sent from Forms for editor module?

I am wondering, could this be a solution to add something like this to the forms mail template?

 

mail.Attachments.Add(new System.Net.Mail.Attachment("pathToAttachment"));

 

Or does anyone have any other examples or documentation on how this could be done?

Hi Hans

You can use a notification subscriber:

 [Subscribe(Dynamicweb.Forms.Notifications.Frontend.OnSendMail)]
    public class FormBeingSent : NotificationSubscriber
    {
        public override void OnNotify(string notification, NotificationArgs args)
        {
            if (args == null)
                return;

            var loadedArgs = (Dynamicweb.Forms.Notifications.Frontend.OnSendMailArgs)args;

            loadedArgs.EmailMessage.Attachments.Add(new System.Net.Mail.Attachment("pathToAttachment"));

        }
    }

Be careful - it could be a lot of data in an email causing it to never reach its target. You could link to the files instead as the files are online anyways.

Hi Hans

You cannot do it from a Razor template. It has to be a notification subscriber which is a class written in C# or VB.

What you can do from the Razor template is to link to the files. It is a better solution if you ask me.
