No doubt you have heard the latest version of Web Forms for Marketers — better known as WFFM — now works on Sitecore MVC — don’t know about you but I am quite excited over this!

Plus, as an added bonus — and this made my day when I installed it 😀 — you can change most of the rendered markup for forms in Views that ship with the module (these are installed into ~\Views\Form\EditorTemplates\ of your Sitecore instance).

However, the other day, I discovered the submit button text is hard-coded in one of the module’s Views:

submit-button-text-hardcoded

As you may know, the module does provide a field on Form Items to change the submit button text:

submit-button-text-form-item

Unfortunately, the value of this field is not being put into the value attribute of the submit button in the View above.

I have alerted Sitecore support of this issue via a ticket though do recommend modifying ~\Views\Form\EditorTemplates\FormModel.cshtml to use the submit button text set on the Form Item if you are using WFFM on Sitecore MVC:

submit-button-text-not-hardcoded

As you can see, the value of the submit button text field is set on a property of the model, and can be easily be put into the value attribute of the submit button.

If you have any thoughts on this, please share in a comment.

    Thanks Mike!

    I must say the MVC version of the module has so many issues that it really made me look like a fool with a client. I added 4 patches so far. This is for Sitecore 7.2 and WFFM 2.141008
