    Hi,

    I have created a custom user control.  I want to show this under Administration tab as a Tool. I tried to do this by inheriting the class with ITool interface. I found that to use ITool, namespace Telerik.Framework is required but I didn't find the Telerik.Framework.dll in the solution's bin folder.

    I am following this 

    http://www.sitefinity.com/developer-network/forums/developing-with-sitefinity/extend-admin-section

    How can I show the control as a Tool under Administation tab or create a Tool? The version of sitefinity I am using is 4.3.1885.0

    Kindly help me to figure it out.

     

    Thanks,

    Prateek

    Hi,

    You can create a new backend page from Administration -> Backend pages. You can set it under the Administration group page. In the page you can drop your custom control.

    To create custom widgets, please, refer to:
