The idea behind the playlist is to give us more options when it comes to displaying generic content with Sitefinity. The download contains several Generic Content Wrappers. They make sure all content inside is wrapped in an outer div (to help with styling). Note: Requires at least jQuery 1.4 registered in the header.

Controls Included

  • Wrapper
  • FancyBox
  • Expander
  • Background Image
Generic Content Wrapper
Wraps this entire control in a div so you can style these freeform html blocks consistently.  This is using the method outlined by telerik here.

Generic Content Expander
This control also contains the standard wrapper, but allows you to hide the content until a link is clicked, then the content will pop in, slide in, fade in, or flash in/out.

Generic Content FancyBox
The guys over at fancybox did such a great job with this.  So not only does this wrap content like the others (in the same div), but it has virtually every fancybox feature available to use from the advanced tab.

Generic Content Background Image
This shows the content with an image directly behind the text.  You can choose files or library images.

Feel free to also check out the demo page for the controls.
