    Is there any documentation on writing a custom Image\Library provider in 4.0 yet?

    There's a couple systems I'd like to integrate into it...

    Hi Steve,

    The providers are loaded through configuration files. Actually you can create a new provider for a given module through UI.
    You can get all providers programmatically from ContentModuleConfigBase and its Providers property which returns ConfigElementDictionary<string, DataProviderSettings>

    DataProviderSettings - represents the configuration elements associated with a provider.


    • Name - Gets or sets the name of the provider configured by this class.
    • Description - Gets or sets description of the provider configured by this class.
    • ResourceClassId - Gets or sets the global resource class ID for retrieving localized strings.
    • ProviderType -The type of the data provider.
    • Parameters - Gets a collection of user-defined parameters for the provider.
    • Enabled - Gets or sets a value indicating whether the provider is enabled.
    • Version -  Gets or sets the version number for a data provider assembly.
    So, if you want to have custom provider that uses the default parameters you can do this from Settings >> Libraries >> Providers >>"Create new"

    You can create a custom type that inherits from OpenAccessLibrariesProvider
