using CMS.FormEngine;

using CMS.SettingsProvider;

using CMS.DataEngine;

using CMS.GlobalHelper;




       string bizFormName = "TestingSiteContactUs";

      string siteName = "CMSTestingSite";


      // Read BizForm definition

      BizFormInfo bfi = BizFormInfoProvider.GetBizFormInfo(bizFormName, siteName);


      if (bfi != null)


          // Read data type definition

          DataClassInfo dci = DataClassInfoProvider.GetDataClass(bfi.FormClassID);


          if (dci != null)


              // Get all bizform data

              GeneralConnection genConn = ConnectionHelper.GetConnection();

              DataSet ds = genConn.ExecuteQuery(dci.ClassName + ".selectall", null, null, null);


              if (!DataHelper.DataSourceIsEmpty(ds))


                  // Get ID of the first record

                  int formRecordID = ValidationHelper.GetInteger(ds.Tables[0].Rows[0][0], 0);

                  // Get the record with ID of the first row record

                  DataClass formRecord = new DataClass(dci.ClassName, formRecordID, genConn);


                  if (!formRecord.IsEmpty())


                      // Set new field values

                       formRecord.SetValue("FirstName", "Bob");

                       formRecord.SetValue("LastName", "Marley");

                       formRecord.SetValue("Email", "bob@email.com");

                       formRecord.SetValue("Message", "Good job:)");

                       formRecord.SetValue("FormUpdated", DateTime.Now);


                      // Save updates in the database



                       lblInfo.Text = "The first record was updated successfully.";





                   lblInfo.Text = "No data found.";
