Kentico Xperience 13 documentation and ASP.NET Core

Most documentation about running Xperience applications under ASP.NET Core can be found in a dedicated section: Developing Xperience applications using ASP.NET Core. The rest of the documentation still applies, but some code samples and scenarios might need slight modifications for Core projects.

Certain pages allow you to switch between Core and MVC 5 content using a selector located under the page heading.

All major differences between the MVC 5 and Core platforms are summarized in Migrating to ASP.NET Core.


Creating forms

You can create new forms via the Forms application:

  1. Open the Forms application.
  2. Click New form.
  3. Enter the name of the form.
  4. Click Save.

You have created a new form. Now you can specify its properties or continue designing the form on the Form builder tab.

  • Display text – the text message specified here is displayed.
  • Redirect to URL – the client browser is redirected to the given URL.
  • Reload form – the form is displayed again without any filled in data.
