How to add Universal Email 'blank' template page bindings; form page loads slow.

How to add Universal Email 'blank' template page bindings; form page loads slow.

I'm building a form (FindSalesRep.php) using Data Bridge Form Builder and using Universal Email to send the form.

Added a select list and trying to add a binding for it to the WA template page (UEmail server behavior says template is 'blank.php'). When I open the template 'webassist/email/templates/blank.php in DW it doesn't show any bindings that I can add (including those in the form already, such as comments). Is this the correct template page for my form? If so, where are the bindings?

Also, the page loads very slow. I've deleted the captcha and other security validations (kept those related to the basic form fields). Also deleted the related security server behavior validations. I've had pages fail to load due to validations before, could this be the reason the page loads slow?

The blank page will automatically loop through all of the form fields and display their values. You can remove those and then us the plus button to add the form bindings from the page where the email server behavior is applied to access and add them manually instead.

I can't comment on the speed. It appears to open and run quickly to me. The actual email send can take a second or two.

On the FindSalesRep.php page I've added a select list of US States, which have been entered manually in the code. On the same page, I then created a Dynamic Select List server behavior.

Opened Blank.php and created a new 'Form Data' binding based on the WA Form, but the select list doesn't show up in the list of available form elements.

Files attached.

Your select list doesn't have a name attribute. You need to refer to the submitted value by name, which means it needs a name.

I'd like to format the email page that goes to the client differently, but can't find where the file is located.

Thought it was Blank.php, but that's not it.

The form action is a php script.

It will be referenced in your email include file where the body is built. By default it is in the folder webassist/email/templates

Back to the earlier post, I've named everything in the Contact Us page, but still can't get the form items to show up in the Blank.php bindings.

On the Contact Us page, there weren't any dynamic behaviors for the radio button or checkboxes, so I tried to create manually. The names of the checkbox items appear in the 'Checkbox:' area, but not sure where to go from there. The 'Check if:' area wants me to select something from the form Persistent Form list, but none of the checkbox items are listed.

Also opened the 'Dynamic Attribute' behavior, but neither radio or checkbox items are listed.

Files are attached.

I'm afraid I don't really understand the question.

It looks like you are referring to form elements that don't exist. Any form element will be referenced by name. So you have in your email body: <?php echo((isset($_POST["SalesRep"]))?$_POST["SalesRep"]:"") ?>

but nowhere on your contact form do you have a form element named "SalesRep". Same thing with "JobOpportunities"

After recreating the checkbox elements using insert > webassist > form > checkbox group, everything, including the radio button began working. My error was naming each checkbox differently, rather than one name for all checkboxes.

Thanks
