Dynamic form field as a block


I have a fixed form block (not Episerver forms) which has some standard form fields.

I want to add a Content Area which allows additional, dynamic form fields to be added to the form.

The question I've got it is, when a Post back of the block is performed, how would I retrieve the values from the items in the content area?

Has anyone ever managed to achieve this, or has some example / pointers that can help?

IMHO solution could be following (also depends on what you gonna do with submitted data afterwards):

  • while postback happens on the server you have access to current page
  • get info about added blocks to that forms "dynamic section" from ContentArea
  • every block should implement some known interface via which you could understand name of the posted field (to find it in incoming request)
  • then you can loop through those blocks and for each block find posted value in incoming Http request

What you do later with these collected values - depends on requirements.
