Hello vee mat,
Generic content items have flat structure and you cannot show them as a tree, because you will have only one node.
On a page you could drop a ContentView based
control( ContentView, NewsView, BlogPosts, EventsView etc) and CategoriesTree
control. Then you have to configure the following properties of the CategoryTree control
- CategoryContentUrl - url to a page where you have dropped ContentView based control.
- CategoryKey - this key should be the same as the CategoryKey set for the ContentView based control. You could check what has been set under QueryString Keys for your ContentView control.
- CategoryKeyType- this key should be the same as the CategoryKey set for the ContentView based control. You could check what has been set under QueryString Keys for your ContentView control.
- ProviderName - set the provider name which the control will use to bind the control. By default it is Generic_Content.
To customize master and details view, you need to map the external templates - How to map a template
, Working with presentation modes.
Mapping these templates allows you to change the html and the way that the text/links will appear. For some complex manipulation, you have to override the control behavior by creating a custom class that inherits from the desired control.
