Predefined selectors for use in backend modules

  • Predefined selectors for use in backend modules
  • Hi telerik,

    It would be great if we could add predefined selector fields in the backend as a custom field.
    Now you can choose for 'Short text', 'Taxonomies' etc., but it would be nice to have also:

    - Page selector field
    - Image selector field
    - Multiple image selector field


    Is this something worth for a new feature?

    Regards,
    Daniel
  • Hi Daniel,

    Thank you for this suggestion. I will investigate this and probably will write a KB article or a blog post on how to achieve this in the next few days. Thank you again for your suggestion.

  • Hi Lubomir,

    Any update on this? Would be nice to at least have a selector for the image field with use of the new image upload/crop/resize functionality.

    Thanks!
    Daniel
  • Hello Daniel,

    I am still working on this. I hope by the end of the week I will have a blog post about how to use different selectors. I will see to it to have at least the new image selector described.

  • Hi Lubomir,

    Still busy on the post?
    I'm eager to see how I can use this.

    Thanks!

  • Hello Daniel,

    I'm still on it. I think I will be able to post some posts during the weekend. Stay tuned.

  • Thanks for the blogpost.
    Would you be so kind to explain how to register this field?

    Thanks,
    Daniel
  • Okay, never mind. Found it.
    Is it also possible to use the LinkManagerDialog here?

    Telerik.Sitefinity.Web.UI.LinkManagerDialog

    So that we can also check external websites?

    Daniel
  • Hi Daniel,

    I was thinking about that - about making the dialog with two tabs - one for internal site pages and the other for external pages. The problem is how to store the selected value, since we have only one field and we have to distinguish the value stored in it.

  • Hi Lubomir,

    I'm curious if you were able to finish your blogposts? Hope so!
    Other question: how can we use the pageselector inside the insert/edit views of a custom module?

    Regards,
    Daniel
  • Hello Daniel,

    I'm still working on the next blog post in the series - an image and multiple image selector.

    As for your other question - since the PageSelector is just a FieldControl, like any other field controls it may be included in the definitions of your Edit/View views - the same way as, e.g., TextField - either with the new Fluent definitions API or the classic definitions API. A very good example on the latter may be found in the Products or Locations modules from the SDK.

  • Hi Lubomir,

    It would be still a great addition to have the 'Media' type as a custom field available in the other modules. Is this doable? And... is the long awaited blogpost doing okay?

    Thanks,

  • Hi Lubomir,

    I think I cannot find the blogpost, or you didn't have time to write it?
    Could you explain how I can include the 'MediaField' that is available in the Dynamic Modules, in the other modules?

    Thanks,
    Daniel
