Edit form submission and delay email notification

  • Edit form submission and delay email notification
  • Hi everyone,

    I'm working on a custom functionality that updates some form entry specific fields, based on the current page. I got that part working fine, but the issue is that every admin subscribed to receive new form notifications is getting 2 of them:
    - The first one with the manually updated values blank
    - The second one with the proper values updated.

    At the point of reaching the "FormsEntryCreatedEventHandler" seems to me that the notification is already sent (or queued to be sent: I checked at this table 'sf_notif_cmplt_msg_job' and there's a new entry right before the method starts). I tried disabling the notifications by manually unsubscribing everyone for that form in the "FormSavingEvent" that comes a bit earlier and the entry does not seem to be found in the table, but I'm still getting the first notification as soon as I enter FormsEntryCreatedEventHandler (and also I think that could lead to problems even if that worked if concurrent users submit the form). 
    The second email is queued because of the "formsManager.SaveChanges();" line and that one sends the proper values.

    This is how the global.asax.cs file looks like (partially and simplified)

    private void Bootstrapper_Initialized(object sender, Telerik.Sitefinity.Data.ExecutedEventArgs e)

        if (e.CommandName == "Bootstrapped")
            EventHub.Subscribe<IFormEntryCreatedEvent>(evt => FormsEntryCreatedEventHandler(evt));

    public void FormsEntryCreatedEventHandler(IFormEntryCreatedEvent eventInfo)

        if (eventInfo.FormName != formName) return null;

            var form = GetForm(eventInfo.FormName);
            var entry = GetFormEntry(form, eventInfo.EntryId);
            var programField = ;
            var degreeField = ;
            entry.SetValue("TextFieldController_1", "value 1");
            entry.SetValue("TextFieldController_2", "value 2");
        catch (Exception ex)
            //uh oh... log this.

    Any suggestions?
    Thanks in advance
