    I would like to implement a "Thank You" email to users who fill out a form in Sitefinity. The email I will get from Sitefinity's built-in email editor.


    I think I need to:


    1) inherit from FormsControl

    2)Subscribe to IFormEvent 

    3) Get the formResponse:

    FormsManager formsManager = FormsManager.GetManager(); var formResponse =     formsManager.GetFormEntries(FormData).SingleOrDefault(fE => fE.ReferralCode == FormData.FormEntriesSeed.ToString());  var emailAddress=formResponse.GetValue("EmailAddress").ToString();


    4) Get the email template

    NewslettersManager newslettersManagermanager = NewslettersManager.GetManager();    MessageBody messageBody = newslettersManagermanager.GetMessageBodies().SingleOrDefault(b => b.Id == emailTemplateId);


    5) Send email 



    My question​s is, how do I define custom properties on my new inherited FormsControl?
