Working With Record Data

Developer documentation on working with Forms record data.
Umbraco Forms includes some helper methods that return records of a given Form, which can be used to output records in your templates using razor.

Available Methods

The methods can be found by injecting the Umbraco.Forms.Core.Services.IRecordReaderService interface. For performance reasons, all these methods are paged.

GetApprovedRecordsFromPage

PagedResult<IRecord> GetApprovedRecordsFromPage(int pageId, int pageNumber, int pageSize)
Returns all records with the state set to approved from all Forms on the Umbraco page with the id = pageId .

GetApprovedRecordsFromFormOnPage

PagedResult<IRecord> GetApprovedRecordsFromFormOnPage(int pageId, Guid.Parse("formId"), int pageNumber, int pageSize)
Returns all records with the state set to approved from the Form with the id = formId on the Umbraco page with the id = pageId as a PagedResult<IRecord>.

GetApprovedRecordsFromForm

PagedResult<IRecord> GetApprovedRecordsFromForm(Guid.Parse("formId"), int pageNumber, int pageSize)
Returns all records with the state set to approved from the Form with the ID = formId as a PagedResult<IRecord>.

GetRecordsFromPage

PagedResult<IRecord> GetRecordsFromPage(int pageId, int pageNumber, int pageSize)
Returns all records from all Forms on the Umbraco page with the id = pageId as a PagedResult<IRecord>.

GetRecordsFromFormOnPage

PagedResult<IRecord> GetRecordsFromFormOnPage(int pageId, Guid.Parse("formId"), int pageNumber, int pageSize)
Returns all records from the Form with the id = formId on the Umbraco page with the id = pageId as a PagedResult<IRecord>.

GetRecordsFromForm

PagedResult<IRecord> GetRecordsFromForm(Guid.Parse("formId"), int pageNumber, int pageSize)
Returns all records from the Form with the ID = formId as a PagedResult<IRecord>.

The returned objects

All of these methods will return an object of type PagedResult<IRecord> so you can iterate through the IRecord objects.
The properties available on a IRecord are:
int Id
FormState State
DateTime Created
DateTime Updated
Guid Form
string IP
int UmbracoPageId
string MemberKey
Guid UniqueId
Dictionary<Guid, RecordField> RecordFields
In order to access custom Form fields, these are available in the RecordFields property. Furthermore there exists an extension method named ValueAsString on IRecord in Umbraco.Forms.Core.Services, such that you can get the value as string given the alias of the field.
This extension method handle multi value fields by comma separating the values. E.g. "A, B, C"

Sample razor script

Sample script that is outputting comments using a Form created with the default comment Form template.
@using Umbraco.Core;
@using Umbraco.Cms.Core.Composing;
@using Umbraco.Forms.Core.Services;
@inject IRecordReaderService _recordReaderService;
<ul id="comments">
@foreach (var record in _recordReaderService.GetApprovedRecordsFromPage(Model.Id, 1, 10).Items)
{
<li>
@record.Created.ToString("dd MMMM yyy")
@if(string.IsNullOrEmpty(record.ValueAsString("email"))){
<strong>@record.ValueAsString("name")</strong>
}
else{
<strong>
<a href="mailto:@record.ValueAsString("email")" target="_blank">@record.ValueAsString("name")</a>
</strong>
}
<span>said</span>
<p>@record.ValueAsString("comment")</p>
</li>
}
</ul>
