    Hi ,
    I have created website in sitefinity 3.7 with some external ControlTemplates. Recently I downloaded Sitefinity 4.0 from telerik site. I found, sitefinity 4.0 has totally different structure for .Net as well as for Database.
    How Can I Merger website built-in sitefinity 3.7 to Sitefinity 4.0.
    Thanks in Advance :)

    Hello Kristian,

    There is an open-source Migration tool on codeplex that you can use to migrate the content of your database. Note that this is an alpha version and it has its limitations. To find out more about the migration tool please find the Josh Morales' blog post on Sitefinity 4 RC Migration tool.

    Thank you for contacting us and we look forward to receiving your highly appreciated feedback!

    All the best,

    Hello Kristian,

    Yesterday we have a release of RC 2 where we added support for adding dynamic fields from the UI.

    Custom Fields

    • Ability to create custom fields for all content items
    • Ability to hide/show default custom fields in different views

    We have some documentation about the custom fields that you can find here.

    Hi Ivan ,
    • Ability to create custom fields for all content items
    • Ability to hide/show default custom fields in different views
    Both the features working fine.
    but how can we add custom UserControl as Custom Field for all content items.
    (eg. UserControl.ascx has dropdownlist with CountryName list. now this control i need to put on News module's Insert/Edit template)
    Thanks In Advance :)

    Hi Kristian,

    Currently you can add only a custom control ( there are issues when you use a user control). You need to create a custom control that inherits from CompositeFieldControl or completely custom control that implements IField interface.

    Best wishes,

    Hello Kristian,

    Here is a sample code

    using System;
    using Telerik.Sitefinity.Web.UI.Fields;
     
    namespace Telerik.Sitefinity.Samples
    {
        class CompositeFieldControlCustom : CompositeFieldControl
        {
            protected override System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebControl TitleControl
            {
                get { throw new NotImplementedException(); }
            }
     
            protected override System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebControl DescriptionControl
            {
                get { throw new NotImplementedException(); }
            }
     
            protected override System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebControl ExampleControl
            {
                get { throw new NotImplementedException(); }
            }
     
            protected override void InitializeControls(Web.UI.GenericContainer container)
            {
                throw new NotImplementedException();
            }
     
            protected override string LayoutTemplateName
            {
                get { throw new NotImplementedException(); }
            }
        }
    }
