    Hi,

    I have created a self-installing widget to install automatically while starting Sitefinity project.

    However, the behavior is different in Sitefinity 8.2 and Sitefinity 9.0.

    In sitifinity 8.2, I could see the registered widget in toolbox and on form editor page where as in Sitefinity 9.0, I could only see the widget in toolbox under sections but the same widget is not displaying on form editor page.

    Mai I know the reason why this is happening?

    Note: This behavior is only with Form Controls and with page controls I didn’t see this behavior.

    Hi,

    The default forms editor in Sitefinity 9.0 is MVC only so if your widget is a Web Forms widget it will not show in the forms toolbox. In version 8.2 the forms editor only defaulted to MVC only if you had installed Sitefinity Editor.

    If your forms widget is indeed WebForms you can change to Web Forms on the Create form dialog. See an example here: http://screencast.com/t/NOHpOSrUoUL2

    Thanks Seth Cleaver. I could see the widgets after selecting framework as web form only option.
