EPiServer.Forms: Forms tab not showing


Since the first install of EPiServer Forms I have that issue where the "Forms" tab in the right pane is missing. An update to the latest version did not make any difference.

When adding the EPiServer.Froms nuget to a vanilla Alloy site the tab shows correctly.

Chrome, Firefox and Safari behave the same, the console does not show any error.

I have done a comparison of loaded js-files in edit-mode and found that at least the following files are not being loaded in our environment:

- Forms.js

- FormsViewModel.js

Also the "EPiServer Forms" folder is shown under the "Blocks" tab instead. To create a form I need to create a new block and then choose "Form Container".

Any idea why this is happening?

Could you test with "Resetting views"?

/EPiServer/CMS/edit/mysettings.aspx, go to the tab "Display options" and click the "Reset views" button.

I've seen more issues lately with the asset panel loosing its tabs. Haven't looked further into the cause though

I had this same issue after a fresh install of the package. This fix worked (thanks), although you do have to go through and re-customise all the windows.

I also had a problem where it couldn't find the views for the blocks.

The partial view 'FormContainerBlock' was not found or no view engine supports the searched locations.

Had to create a new View folder and point the Forms.config value to it: formElementViewsFolder="~/Views/Shared/Blocks/Forms"
