    Hi,

    I am using sitefinity 4.1 in my project and there is a requirement to create a custom module with my own created tables. I have to create module for backend users /pages. Have tried job application posted in your documentation, but no luck. There are no such implementation available to work on user defined tables for backend pages so that I could take help for my project.
    Please provide definite solution on this so that I could proceed in my project. It will be really helpful for me.
    Thanks
    Fareed

    Hi Fareed,

    You need to create a data layer that will be bridge between Sitefinity and the custom tables you have already created. In Sitefinity 4 we use Open Access as  a datalayer for our modules and each module has data persistent class.

    All the best,

    You could check the Open Access ORM help.

    If you're not using the Content model at all, but instead developed your own backend with asp.net user controls, you might want to look at my recent video / blog post on Intra-Site modules in Siteifnity 4: http://bit.ly/lHcOX7

    This shows you how to create a simple installer that registers your custom controls as a module, without needing to hook into any Sitefinity definitions.

    I hope this is helpful!
