Action Form Notes

Action Form is a module developed by for the DNN Content Management System and Development Platform. The developers at have used the Action Form module for countless projects and solutions for a number of years. The following is an modest collection of notes that we have started to record about techniques to take advantage of the strengths of this module. We record this here not to become a secondary help system for Action Form users or DNNSharp. But if you can find something here that helps you, that makes us happy too.

Standard Tokens in Action Form

Mark Buelsing 0 2342 Article rating: No rating
  • Utility Tokens
    • [_ReportKey] - unique ID that identifies the current submission. This also powers edit functionality in Action Form. Whenever a entry parameter is present in query string, Action Form tries to match the associated report entry and load it into the form.
    • [_Referrer] - holds the URL from which the user arrived to the form
    • [_UserIp] - holds the IP of the user
    • [_FormUrl] - the URL where the form lives
    • [_FormUrlRelative] - same as above, only it’s a relative URL
    • [_EditUrl] - is the URL to edit current submission at a later time
    • [_IsNew] - true when the form is submitted for the first time
    • [_IsEdit]- true when the form is edited (for example using the [_EditUrl] token or Action Grid).
  • These tokens also work
    • [Module:ModuleId] - The Module ID

Use the following for Action Grid

Alternate Syntax for Querystring Tokens:  [$ID=1]   (This syntax only works for ActionGrid)

Also alternative syntax for Querystring tokens: [QueryString:PID=-1]  introduced for Action Grid, the -1 is needed to allow QctionGrid to return the columnnames first

Welcome Photographers!

We would like to make connections with amateur photographers who would like to see their beautiful images used on the Internet.

If you are interested, leave your name and email and we'll contact you when a particular photo is needed for one of our website projects. If you have a photo that fits the need, then send it to us. At the very least, you will get credit for the photo. Some projects will pay for your photo. It is an opportunity to get your work published!

Thank you
