Is it possible to update hidden form fields after they have been added to the database?


The code that I'm using gives an error -  {"Guid should contain 32 digits with 4 dashes (xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx)."}

I've tried -

var ddsSubmission = new DdsPermanentStorage();

* code here to get the correct field, remove it, and re-add it to the submission object with the updated values.

ddsSubmission.UpdateToStorage(formGuid, formsIden, submission);

as well as -


but in both cases I get the same error.

This error appears to be related to the Guid that's part of formsIden but I use formsIden to get the friendlynames and it works.

    Hmm, I tried the following code but see no problem

            public override Guid SaveToStorage(FormIdentity formIden, Submission submission)
                var dds = new DdsPermanentStorage();
                var submissionId = dds.SaveToStorage(formIden, submission);
                submission.Data["__field_183"] = "test@test.test"; // __field_183 is the id of my hidden visitor profiling field
                dds.UpdateToStorage(submissionId, formIden, submission);
                return submissionId;

    Thanks Phu. I changed my code to use var submissionId = ddsSubmission.SaveToStorage(formsIden, submission); but it still gives the error  {"Guid should contain 32 digits with 4 dashes (xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx)."}.

    I'm wondering if there is a permission or property in the web.config related to this method that I haven't set.

    I tried this with another Episerver site I'm working with and I'm getting the same error. Anyone else have this problem?
