Extending default EPIServer.Forms template


Hi there,

I am trying to find out how involved it might be to extend the default forms template with a new tab and custom properties. The goal would be that every time a new form is created, the new properties and default settings would be included and set by default.

I know this is possible on page types but just curious if there is anything with the EPIServer.Forms plug-in that might prohibit this?

Hi neworigin,

It is exactly the same as page types.

Forms is based upon a special type of block.

You can create your own custom form block just make sure to inherit from FormContainerBlock.

Then you can add your custom properties just like pages and blocks and set defaults.

Thought that would be the case. Thanks!
