Retrieving data from specialized CMSControls

How do I access data after Bizform submit from the country and state control, the international phone control, and email control?

My code for normal input fields looks like this:

Control first_name = this.frmContactRegInput.BasicForm.FindControl("First_Name");

I am thinking I need the exact casting for this to work with these specific Kentico controls.

RE:Retrieving data from specialized CMSControls

The BizForm control is based on the BasicForm control that provides a property called FieldControls. It is a standard HashTable that contains all controls as FormEngineUserControl.

However, if you need only the entered data, it should be possible to use the BasiForm.DataRow property instead, for example:

DataRow row = BizFormControl.BasicForm.DataRow;
string email = ValidationHelper.GetString( row["EmailField"], String.Empty );

Moreover, the BizForm control provides a few handlers you can use to access the entered data, such as OnAfterSave, OnBeforeValidate, OnUploadFile, etc.

I would like to point you to the following knowledge base article that demonstrates how you can use the OnUploadFile handler to validate the size of uploaded file: How to validate the size of uploaded file in BizForm

FYI: BasicForm.DataRow has been replaced with BasicForm.Data in Kentico CMS 6.0
