Control Panel: Adding Views to Control Panel

by Ivan Osmak

[This post is part of the developer's manual preview published on this blog. You can find temporary TOC here.]  

Control Panel classes are just root Views in the new backend architecture. Event though, they are somewhat special, they are still only Views based on ViewModeControl base class.


We have seen how to add child views or subviews to a View in this article and Control Panel base calss is no exception here.


In article about automatic command generation and automatic breadcrumb we have also seen why in the Control Panel class implementation it may prove useful to add Views using AddView<T> overload which allows us to specify title and description. Namely, it will allow us to take advantage of the built in features for automatic command generation and breadcrumb tracking.


So, with this wrap up of different concepts used to achieve a desired end, we are finishing the topic on Control Panel base class.
