1. Blog selector( web editor)

This web editor is useful if you want to select some of the blogs you have already created.


Here we are creating an user control where we add BlogPosts control.


<%@ Control Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="WebEditor.ascx.cs" Inherits="CustomControls_WebEditor" %> 
<%@ Register Assembly="Telerik.Blogs" Namespace="Telerik.Blogs.WebControls" TagPrefix="blogs" %> 
<blogs:BlogPosts ID="BlogPosts1" runat="server" ParentIDs="" />


We put the WebEditor in the code behind and use the value to show our blog. Under methods

region you can create a new instance of BlogManager and pass the ID of the WebEditor.


using System;
using System.Web.UI;
using Telerik.Cms.Web.UI;
using System.ComponentModel;
using Telerik.Rss;
using Telerik.Framework.Web.Design;
using Telerik.Cms.Engine;
using Telerik.Cms;
using Telerik.Blogs;
public partial class CustomControls_WebEditor : System.Web.UI.UserControl, ITextControl
    #region Methoods
 protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
 if (selectedBlogs != null)
            BlogManager ctman = new BlogManager();
            IBlog blog = ctman.GetBlog(selectedBlogs[0]);
            BlogPosts1.ParentIDs = selectedBlogs;
    #region Properties
    [TypeConverter("Telerik.Blogs.WebControls.SelectedBlogsConverter, Telerik.Blogs")]
    [WebEditor("Telerik.Blogs.WebControls.BlogsSelector, Telerik.Blogs")]
 public Guid[] SelectedBlogs
 return this.selectedBlogs;
 this.selectedBlogs = value;
 private Guid[] selectedBlogs;







As a result a Guid is returned.


2.Newsletters group selector - it returns all newsletter groups you have already created.


[WebEditor("Telerik.Notifications.Newsletters.WebControl.GroupSelectionList, Telerik.Notifications")]
    [TypeConverter("Telerik.Framework.Utilities.GuidArrayConverter, Telerik.Framework")]
 public Guid[] SubscriberGroups
 get { return subscriberGroups; }
 set { subscriberGroups = value; }
 private Guid[] subscriberGroups;




As a result a Guid is returned.

    How about one of these fancy selectors for the forums too? :)

    On a related note there was a comment a few releases back to focus on the CMS versus the modules.  I'm starting to see some inconsistencies in module functionality with examples like this.  It would be great to split efforts into a core CMS development and modules.  Work on the modules on a different release cycle and publish them to a marketplace in a manner similar to Firefox addons.  That way we can offer up our own implementations of these modules.
