    Hi People

    I want to start developing modules for this beta version.

    Do you have a sample module with code that I can use as a reference?

    No final decision has been reached about this yet. We are currently working on a sample module to provide as reference soon.

    Ok please update me when the example module is ready. Sooner the better.

    What about putting in normal user controls?

    Hi Paul,

    In the current version the only way to add user and custom controls is by modifying the Web.config file.

    Look for the following tags <telerik><cms><toolboxControls>.

     

    Example for user control:

    <add name=”MyUserControl” section=”My Controls” url=”~/UserControls/MyControl.ascx” description=”Some description goes here” />

     

    Example for custom control:

    <add name=”MyCustomControl” section=”My Controls” type=”MyControls.MyControl, MyControls” description=”Some description goes here” />

     

    In beta 2 we will provide the ability to upload controls from the user interface and configuration will be handled automatically.

     

    Note that there are still some problems with the design time handling of controls but they should work fine at run time.

    Hey

    It would be great if for the beta2 release there was a example module. Any essential documentation would also be great.

    Hello Paul,

    We intend to add an example how to create custom modules. Also we will include the relevant description into the Developer Manual. We do not promise that it will be ready for the mid November beta but for sure we will ship the official version of Sitefinity 3.0 with such an example.

    Kind regards,

    Hello

    Following up what was asked earlier, I was wondering if there was any news on any sample code for custom modules (that are tied in with workflows and such)

    Many thanks.

    Hello Imran,

    We are planning an update for Beta 3 which will include the sample Jobs module.  The update should be out by the end of the week.
