Sending an e-mail via set template

I am using MS Visual Studio 2005 .Net C#. I am trying to create a sample e-mail setup. i.e.

I would like an e-mail set up when a user clicks on the button will create an email notification sending out to an e-mail address saying data submitted etc... but also displaying what in the email whatever data has been inserted in that particular txt box.

Thanks!

Hi,

I have made a quick example here for you.  So say for any for you have, for the event of the submit button, either add this code or have it as the event handler.  Basically it emnails you all the information from the posted form values prefixing with the name.

Cheers

Andrew

    protected void TemplatedEmailFormData(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        StringBuilder sb1 = new StringBuilder();
        foreach (string s in Request.Form)
        {
            sb1.AppendLine(s + " : " + Request.Form[s]);
        }
        MailAddress FromAddress = new MailAddress("user1@email.com");
        MailAddress ToAddress = new MailAddress("user1@email.com");
        MailMessage message = new MailMessage(FromAddress, ToAddress);
        message.Body = sb1.ToString();
        SmtpClient client = new SmtpClient("127.0.0.1", 25);
        client.Send(message);
    }

I would only like the data from one txt box rather than all the values enetered by the user.

then simply this

Andrew
    protected void TemplatedEmailFormData(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        MailAddress FromAddress = new MailAddress("user1@email.com");
        MailAddress ToAddress = new MailAddress("user1@email.com");
        MailMessage message = new MailMessage(FromAddress, ToAddress);
        message.Body = YourTextBox.Text;
        SmtpClient client = new SmtpClient("127.0.0.1", 25);
        client.Send(message);

I am sorry as I am on the beginner level. The code i assume is added into the CS file which I have. How will I ensure that this has run after the button has been clicked.

Also in the body, I would like to inserted the text.box while in a sentence. E.g. The new project txtPName.text has been commissioned.

How will I do this??
    protected void TemplatedEmailFormData(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        MailAddress FromAddress = new MailAddress("project@theidfactor.com");
        MailAddress ToAddress = new MailAddress("project@theidfactor.com");
        MailMessage message = new MailMessage(FromAddress, ToAddress);
        message.Subject = "New Project Has been commissioned";
        message.Body = txtPName.Text 'Has now been commissioned';
        SmtpClient client = new SmtpClient("127.0.0.1", 25);
        client.Send(message);

        message.Subject = "New Project Has been commissioned";
        message.Body = txtPName.Text + 'Has now been commissioned';

REA_ANDREWCommented:
you will have a Button, so you simple add this to its onclick event

OnClick="TemplatedEmailFormData"

introluxAuthor Commented:
What if I have a command already on the OnClick=

Is it possible to add two multiple commands???

introluxAuthor Commented:
????????

REA_ANDREWCommented:
yes, so just add this code block, either at the end or the beginning of your current function

aslong as you code between the two curly brackets you can put as much code in there as you want.  

Andrew
        MailAddress FromAddress = new MailAddress("project@theidfactor.com");
        MailAddress ToAddress = new MailAddress("project@theidfactor.com");
        MailMessage message = new MailMessage(FromAddress, ToAddress);
        message.Subject = "New Project Has been commissioned";
        message.Body = txtPName.Text + 'Has now been commissioned';
        SmtpClient client = new SmtpClient("127.0.0.1", 25);
        client.Send(message);

This is a very simple error which I have looked all over the internet but no luck. I have tried every possible ways to have multiple commands being executed

Thanks

REA_ANDREWCommented:
Before you attempt this you need to read up on Basic C# syntax and event handlers, as I am struggling to jump in and fill all the gaps.  Have a read through some tutorials first.

introluxAuthor Commented:
I have read through some examples and all only explain how to execute one command. Hence I have two:

AddCredentials_Click
TemplatedEmailFormData

AddCredentials_Click = This adds data into the access database
TemplatedEmailFormData = This sends an e-mail

I want both of these to run at the same time the button 'Print' is clicked by the user.

Thanks

REA_ANDREWCommented:
check this.

I have

pubilc void DoSomethingA()
{
}

and
pubilc void DoSomethingB()
{
}

I could simply write this:

pubilc void DoSomethingA(object sender,EventArgs e)
{
DoSomethingB();
DoSomethingC();
}

OnClick="DoSomethingA"

So here I call DoSomethingA on the onclick and in turn it then calls the other two functions DoSomthingB and DoSomethingC

Cheers

Andrew :-)

I meant fo you to get that from my example, you simply need to place the other function call inside your original function for the button.

AddCredentials_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
//YOUR CODE HERE!!

//NOW MY CODE
        MailAddress FromAddress = new MailAddress("project@theidfactor.com");
        MailAddress ToAddress = new MailAddress("project@theidfactor.com");
        MailMessage message = new MailMessage(FromAddress, ToAddress);
        message.Subject = "New Project Has been commissioned";
        message.Body = txtPName.Text + 'Has now been commissioned';
        SmtpClient client = new SmtpClient("127.0.0.1", 25);
        client.Send(message);

//NOW ANY OTHER FUNCTION IF YOU WANT
AnotherFunctionOrTwoHere();

//NOW CLOSE THE FUNCTION BLOCK
}

p.s. make sure you know and insert the email provider host you have. replace the 127.0.0.1 with the actual email host address if it is not the same as that.  i.e. a dedictaed server
