i know this should be posted in the forage section but I know more people read this section. I am new to developing a module using Module Creator. I want to build a simple module, first then add a jquery select statement after I get the first easy module created. I already have the Jquery part of it created. So here is what I would like it to look like:

Send Email To: [Text Field Here]
Email Sent From: [Text Field Here]
Subject: [Text Field Here]
Message: [Multiline Text Field Here]
[Submit Button Here]

I know how to write the script for the above so that is not a problem. What I don't know how to do is the rest. I have searched all over and can not find any info on it. So here are my questions:

1. in the module creator language should I use C# , VB , or Web?

2. if you have a basic View.ascx View.ascx.resoce and/or a View.ascx.CS code I can copy to get me going I would appreciate it.

3. Any info on tutorials, or links would be greatly appreciated!

4. Am I asking for a lot of help here?

Well I figured out the first part using C# and rad script it is as follows (for anyone else that is trying to do it:
@using DotNetNuke.Common;

@{
var errorMessage = "";

if (IsPost)
{
var toEmail = Request["toEmail"];
var fromEmail = Request["fromEmail"];
var subject = Request["subject"];
var body = Request["body"];

try {
WebMail.SmtpServer = "relay-hosting.secureserver.net";
WebMail.SmtpPort = 25;

WebMail.UserName = "Name [email protected]";
WebMail.Password = "Password";
WebMail.From = fromEmail;
WebMail.Send(to: toEmail,
subject: subject,
body: body);
}
catch (Exception ex ) {
errorMessage = ex.Message;
}
}
}



< form method="post">
From Address: < input type="text" name="fromEmail" value="[email protected]" size="65"/>

My next questions are:

How and where would I add a site redirect after pressing the send email button?

How would I add a sql select script into the To: field (with a drop down menu) here is the script I have set up:SELECT 'All Users' as QuestionOption, Stuff( (SELECT N'; ' + email FROM users where email>=' ' FOR XML PATH(''),TYPE) .value('text()[1]','nvarchar(max)'),1,2,N'') as QuestionOptionValue UNION SELECT 'All Volunteers' as QuestionOption, Stuff( (SELECT N'; ' + U.email FROM dbo.Users AS U LEFT OUTER JOIN (SELECT up.UserID, MAX(CASE WHEN ppd.PropertyName = 'Volunteer' THEN up.PropertyValue ELSE '' END) AS Volunteer FROM dbo.UserProfile AS up INNER JOIN dbo.ProfilePropertyDefinition AS ppd ON up.PropertyDefinitionID = ppd.PropertyDefinitionID and ppd.PortalID = 0 Group By up.UserID) as upd on U.UserID = upd.UserID Where upd.Volunteer='True' FOR XML PATH(''),TYPE) .value('text()[1]','nvarchar(max)'),1,2,N'') as QuestionOptionValue UNION
SELECT 'All Committees' as QuestionOption, Stuff( (SELECT N'; ' + U.email FROM dbo.USERS AS U LEFT OUTER JOIN (SELECT up.UserID, MAX(CASE WHEN ppd.PropertyName = 'Committee' THEN up.PropertyValue ELSE '' END) AS Committee FROM dbo.UserProfile AS up INNER JOIN dbo.ProfilePropertyDefinition AS ppd ON up.PropertyDefinitionID = ppd.PropertyDefinitionID and ppd.PortalID = 0 Group By up.UserID) as upd on U.UserID = upd.UserID Where upd.Committee >' ' FOR XML PATH(''),TYPE) .value('text()[1]','nvarchar(max)'),1,2,N'') as QuestionOptionValue

For starters - you should never add a
Instead of going down the path you are attempting to use - use the Create Module tool to build a default c# module - not a razor script module.

The c# module template will set you up a default that shows you how to add fields and how to include an clickable button - that responds on the server side in a way that can easily be used to do you send mail code.

Hi!

I have a same goal. How I wanted to decide it:

1.Add to page simple HTML/text module. Some forms with button.

2. Add some scripts before and/or after content of module.

3. Result: when I press on the button a email with information from forms is sending to [email protected]

A question is - can I realize such scheme? And how? Or I need to create new type of module?
