    How do I findout the backend template markup for the generate Insert view of a custom module? I need to customize the way the individual fields are arranged and want to put some extra logic in the code behind and use that as an external template for the insert view.

    Hi Duneel,

    When you install the SDK there is a folder with external templates -C:\Program Files (x86)\Telerik\Sitefinity SDK 4.0\Resources. All templates can be exported with Reflector as well.
    I suggest that you should use custom fields instead of trying to modify the templates. Custom fields can be added from the UI and there is an option to create a custom controls that can be used as a fields in the view.

    If you want to arrange some of the fields you should change the definition of the view which can be done from the configurations.
