Creating layout widgets
You can create layout widgets in your Sitefinity web project or a class library.
- In the Solution Explorer, select the folder where you want to put the layout widget
- Open its context menu, select Add » New Item…
- In the left pane, select Sitefinity and in the central pane, select Sitefinity Layout Widget.
Sitefinity Thunder generates a sample widget template and registers it in the toolbox configuration in Sitefinity and, if it is located in a class library, registers the project in the virtual paths configuration.
You can view your custom layout widgets when editing a page or a template layout. For more information, see Adding layout elements.
