    Hello Team telerik,
    I need to link a generic control to the page. There are couple of generic controls  out of the box avaiable namely Generic Content and content View. Content view provides the list of contents available where as Generic Content once dragged on content areas would display only the description of the selected content. Is there a control to link the Generic Content with title, Description, date, etc. the same as the News view.

    Any help is highly appreciated.

    Regards,
    Siddesh Kapadi

    Hi Siddesh Kapadi,

    NewsView has the same functionality as ContentView. The NewsView inherits from ContentView and the only difference is "Thumbnail" metakey implementation.

    Hey,

    Thanks for the response. But do you mean that News module should be used instead of generic content? If yes, then again the same question remains unanswered as to how can the News Content (not the list) be linked(only single) to a page by doing so or an alternative to achieve this in Generic Content can also be worked with ?

    Please mind that only a single content needs to be mapped to the page and not the list.

    Thanks and Regards,

    Hello Siddesh Kapadi,

    The ContentView control has a property SelectedItemId that is located under Obsolete Members property section. You can use this property to show a single event. Although the property is marked as obsolete there would not be any errors.

    Kind regards,

    Hello Team telerik,

    This seems to be working perfectly but still I have some queries. The All Content link appears on the top of the control and I need to remove the same. Once I enter(need to add the GUID manually rather than the auto picker :( ) the GUID in SelectedItemId, there is no provision to manage the content parameters to appear on the page like publish date, author, etc... Also the posted by : at the bottom does not seem to disappear if no author is selected.

    Please find the attached png file.

    Kindly Help.


    Thanks and Regards,
    Siddesh Kapadi

    Hi Siddesh Kapadi,

    You can map the external template for the control how to map a template and remove the links. You can implement a custom selector for the control how to create custom WebUITypeEditor
