    I would like to know what is it that I am doing wrong in the Registration Widget. I keep trying to add the custom fields that I have created for my Basic Profile.

    When I go to add the field I get this code in the Edit Template page: <sitefinity:TextField runat="server" DisplayMode="Read" Value='<%# Eval("Company")%>' />

    When I add this code and preview the page, nothing shows up, nothing. 

    when I change DisplayMode to "Write" I am able to see an input field that does absolutely nothing in regards to registering that fields data. 

    I other words I need to know what I am suppose to write in this template editor in order to ge the right field to show up.

    https://sitefinity.litmos.com/course/6798/module/34762   that has been helpful but at the end he just mentions the registration widget instead of actually showing how to add the custom fields.

    please help!

    Hello Fredy,

     Your question was answered in your support ticket, I'm posting the answer here, as well:

    Here's how you should add the field to the template, so it can be bound properly:

    <sitefinity:TextFieldrunat="server"ID="testCustom"  DisplayMode="Write"DataItemType="Telerik.Sitefinity.Security.Model.SitefinityProfile"DataFieldName="testCustom"/>


    The name of my field here is "testCustom" and it is added in the basic profile. If you add the field it to another profile type, you will have to change the DataItemType to the relevant Profile Type.  The DataFieldName property indicates to which field the value should be bound. Also, an ID is necessary to be added.

    Hi Qainan,

     Here's an example of adding a dropdown choiceField, bound to a field in the Profile Type, called Country:

    <sitefinity:ChoiceField id="State" runat="server" DisplayMode="Write" RenderChoicesAs="DropDown" DataItemType="Telerik.Sitefinity.Security.Model.SitefinityProfile" DataFieldName="Country">
                        <Choices>
                            <sitefinity:ChoiceItem Text="Bulgaria" value="Bulgaria"></sitefinity:ChoiceItem>
                            <sitefinity:ChoiceItem Text="UK" value="UK"></sitefinity:ChoiceItem>
                            <sitefinity:ChoiceItem Text="USA" value="USA"></sitefinity:ChoiceItem>
                        </Choices>
                </sitefinity:ChoiceField>

    Hi Qainan,

     You can use the same code that I've sent to you, only with a simple change in syntax:

    RenderChoicesAs="SingleCheckBox"
    Also, have in mind that the custom field that you register in your profile must be of type Multiple Choice.

    Best wishes,

    Can checkboxes and dropdownlists be used in the profile editing widget as well?
    Would the country in the user's profile be selected properly?
    Another issue: How do you implement dropdownlists and checkboxes in the BACK-END registration and user profile widgets (no templates are open for us the change)?

    does this mean that I have to individually add all the choices in the code portion as well?

    If so what was the purpose to adding them in the GUI of the choice field?

    Also why aren't the default inserts the textboxes when you are working on the registration widget and not the profile widget, seems that a lot of coding is used when there is a lot of GUI work done before hand.
