    Hello,

    Is it possible to limit access to a particular control on a page?  For example, I would like to add a "generic content" control to the home page of my site.  I only want the control to be displayed when a user is authenticated or belongs to a specific role.  Anonymous users would not be able to see the particular control.

    I understand that I can assign permissions to an entire page, but would like to have a little more granularity and be able to hide/show controls based on the user role. 

    Thanks in advance,

    Robert

    Hello Robert,

    The current implementation and API does not allow restricting modification over controls that have been added to a page. You can only control which controls can be dragged and dropped on a page. We will have granular permissions from Sitefinity 4.0.

    Ivan, thank you for the quick reply!

    You've answered my question, but you bring up another question.  Do you have an ETA on when we can expect version 4.0?  If not a specific date, can you provide some timeframe of when it may be expected?

    Thank you,

    Robert

    Hi Robert,

    We will not be able to release the official version earlier than 2010. Most probably we will mange to release a limited beta before that, but there is no certain time frame.
