Contour, disabling the auto resume feature

If you have a multistep form in Contour and the end users doesn’t fill in all the steps, the next time he visits the form he can simply continue where he stopped…

Currently it isn’t possible to disabled this resume funtionality in the UI but it’s pretty easy to do, it’s just a matter of removing a cookie.

Here is a snipped you can use (just make sure to set the correct form guid):

<script runat="server">
  protected override void OnLoad(EventArgs e){
            if (!IsPostBack)
                int pageId = umbraco.presentation.nodeFactory.Node.GetCurrent().Id;
                string formId = "204188fc-509e-43e2-b04e-dcfde2e62158";
                if (Request.Cookies["contour_"+pageId+"_" +formId] != null)
                    var contourCookie = Request.Cookies["contour_"+pageId+"_" +formId];
                    contourCookie.Expires = DateTime.Now.AddDays(-1d);

    Thanks Tim,
    This solved an issue I had with opening a form to edit, and deleting… After that any other records I opened for editing in that form would appear blank.

    hi Tim,

    Does this still work with the current Contour?
    I tried adding it in a usercontrol to a macro so I could add this specifically to multistepforms (I am adding the macro the content editor), but it doesn’t seem to work.
