I am now using Episerver 7 MVC to create some Xform for sending mail or redirect to other page much more convenient.
But after research in the internet and forums as well, I found a solution to let the form work. But there still a question cannot to solve. If I not choose the brower 'Page shown after the form has been sent', the Success Action could be triggered, but if I choose a page for the brower option, Success action could not be fired and just redirect to the page which I have chosen in Episerver CMS.
I want to know how to deal with it and if I want to use AfterSubmitPostedData event in Episerver 7 MVC, how can I do?
Just the same as in global.asax or just do not have to do it and use other action instead.
'Page shown after the form has been sent' is on each Xform Editor and I just want to do manual sending another mail after the Xform mail has been sent and then after I sent manual mail, it redirect to the page which I have setted.
I really need your help.
I researched a lot, but cannot find any useful information. Then I reflector the source and according to episerver 7 codes, finally solve the problem.
Would be nice if you could share some code fragments for reference. Thanks!
In EPiServer.dll the following code exists in the class-file XFormSuccessACtionResult.cs that contributes to the problem.
If the editor have an confirmation page, the Success method isn't invoked.
public override void ExecuteResult(ControllerContext context)
if (base.XForm.PageGuidAfterPost != System.Guid.Empty)
string mappedUrl = this.GetMappedUrl(base.XForm);
base.InvokeAction(context.Controller as Controller, context.HttpContext.Request.Params.get_Item("successAction"));
There is a work around. After I did some decompiling of the EPiServer.dll I came up with this solution (assuming that you use DoSubmit as PostAction and Success as the SuccessAction)
public virtual ActionResult Success(BasePageData currentPage, XFormPostedData xFormpostedData)
//you custom code here ...
//Return to the right page..
if(xFormpostedData.XForm.PageGuidAfterPost != Guid.Empty)
//default, return to index.
public virtual ActionResult DoSubmit(BasePageData currentPage, XFormPostedData xFormpostedData)
if (ModelState.IsValid && ProcessXFormAction(xFormpostedData))
return Success(currentPage, xFormpostedData);
protected bool ProcessXFormAction(XFormPostedData post)
var xformData = new XFormPageHelper().GetXFormData(this, post);
return XFormActionHelper.DoAction(xformData, post, true);
catch (Exception ex)
This save my day!
Very useful information
