Id for Div

  • Id for Div
  • Hi,

    Is there any way to apply id for Div of layout controls in sitefinity?

  • Hi SJ,

    Currently there is no way to assign IDs in layout controls. If you put IDs you may have problems when you insert multiple instances of the same layout control.

    Can you please explain why you need to have IDs there? Maybe we could think of a workaround?

    All the best,

  • Hello Lyubomir,

    I am having a similar challenge. I have a page with two image galleries, I only want to display one at a time. Alternating based on a button.  I am using sitefinity 5.1.327.  I am looking for a way to have sitefinity wrap a widget in a named div, so I can easily hide or display it with javascript.

    See if this gets you started - I'm sure you'll be able to advance on the basics.

    It's a simple custom layout example that allows you to toggle display of two panels.

    I use this concept quite a lot, and have had no major issues to date. 

    In edit mode, you can change panels, so you can drag & drop an image gallery widget into each panel, and then configure them differently.

    In public mode, the user can click on the button to change panels, which will display alternate galleries.

    Add the layout to you toolbox PageLayouts
    type="Telerik.Sitefinity.Web.UI.LayoutControl, Telerik.Sitefinity"
    description="My Layout" layoutTemplate="~/path/MyLayout.ascx"

    Custom Layout: MyLayout.ascx
