Loading additional resources

Recommendations [hide]

Note: Episerver Forms is only supported by MVC-based websites and HTML5-compliant browsers.

You can load additional resources after form rendering with IViewModeExternalResourcesImplement the IViewModeExternalResources interface to return a list of resources (JavaScriptS or CSS files) that are loaded into ViewMode along with EPiServerForms.js.

The interface is used mostly for the following:

  • Third-party validators.
  • Rich element types (with rich, complex user interface that needs JavaScript to render UI and handle interaction), such as DateTimeElement in the Forms.Samples project.
using EPiServer.Forms.Core;
using EPiServer.ServiceLocation;
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;

namespace EPiServer.Templates.Alloy.FormsExtended
  {
    /// <summary>
    /// This example will force Forms.Core to load a JS and a CSS file (at http://example.com/Customized/ViewMode/Alloy.css) along with Form rendering
    /// </summary>
    [ServiceConfiguration(ServiceType = typeof(IViewModeExternalResources))]
    public class ExampleViewModeExternalResources : IViewModeExternalResources
      {
        public IEnumerable<Tuple<string, string>> Resources
          {
            get
              {
                var arrRes = new List<Tuple<string, string>>();
                arrRes.Add(new Tuple<string, string>("script", "/Customized/ViewMode/Example.js"));
                arrRes.Add(new Tuple<string, string>("css", "/Customized/ViewMode/Example.css"));   // This will not work in nonJS mode
                return arrRes;
              }
          }
      } 
  }
