    Hi there,

    I am new to Sitefinity 4.x but have quite alot of experience with Sitefinity 3.x, I am looking at building a Contact us form with the Country dropdown list, since it is a pain to add all of them to the dropdown widget I am looking at reusing anything prebuilt by you or your partners otherwise building it myself,

    Can you please tell me where to download any existing or where to look at to build my own widget.

    A quick reply will be highly appreciated.

    I'm looking for something like this as well.  Having a list of countries is an extremely common feature of forms and having to build it out manually is incredibly inefficient.

    I needed a similar resource when making a States menu selector, and found Snipplr to be very useful. here are a few snippets I found that might be useful:

    Dropdown Countries (C#)
    Countries (HTML)
    Get Countries Method (C#)

    That last one looks particularly interesting, as it doesn't use a list, but rather iterates through all the cultures in C#.

    I've not tried any of these, so I don't know how accurate they are, but they should be helpful in getting you started. I recommend extracting these to an xml file or resource file so it can be reused but easily modified.

    hope this is helpful!
