using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
using umbraco.NodeFactory;  //Only used when in conjunction with Umbraco

public partial class usercontrols_ContactFormPublications : System.Web.UI.UserControl
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        contactFormSubmit.Click += new ImageClickEventHandler(contactFormSubmit_Click);
        if (IsPostBack)
            contactFormSubmitted.Visible = true;
            contactForm.Visible = false;

        // 1. Fill in the 'formmessage' TextArea Box with the URL of the Last page Visited
        formmessage.InnerText = "This is the page I am referring to:\r\n\r\n " + Request.ServerVariables["HTTP_REFERER"] + ""; 

    void contactFormSubmit_Click(object sender, ImageClickEventArgs e)
        var name = !String.IsNullOrEmpty(formname.Value) ? formname.Value : "(unspecified)";
        var fromAddress = !String.IsNullOrEmpty(formemail.Value) ? formemail.Value : "(unspecified)";
        var message = !String.IsNullOrEmpty(formmessage.Value) ? formmessage.Value : "(unspecified)";
        var postal = !String.IsNullOrEmpty(formpostal.Value) ? formpostal.Value : "(unspecified)";
        var telephone = !String.IsNullOrEmpty(formtel.Value) ? formtel.Value : "(unspecified)";
        var copies = !String.IsNullOrEmpty(formcopies.Value) ? formcopies.Value : "(unspecified)";

        var currentPage = Node.GetCurrent();
         //  2.  If you have an Umbraco field called "mailTo" you can get the maill address using this line:
        //var emailToAddress = UmbracoHelper.getUmbracoProperty(currentPage, "mailTo");

        //  3.  If you are not usin '2' just fill in the 'TO' address here:
        var emailToAddress = "";
        if (String.IsNullOrWhiteSpace(emailToAddress))
            throw new Exception("No address to email to specified");
