Last week I released v1.0 of my MultipleProperty control. For more information please see my previous blog post. I have had some feedback from some developers in the community and have added the following new features.
New Features in v1.1
I have added a new virtual method to the MultiplePropertyBase class named CreateDefaultViewControls. This method can be overriden to allow custom mark-up to be rendered when the property is bound to an EPiServer Property control. By default a string representation of the entity will be rendererd.
Editors can now sort items within list view using drag and drop.
A new interface has been added named IMultiplePropertySettingsCreator. A property has also been added to the MultplePropertyEntityPropertyAttribute named PropertySettingsCreator. A developer can now set the value of the PropertySettingsCreator property to be a type that implements IMultiplePropertySettingsCreator. This offers a cleaner way of applying property settings to a property than v1.0.
The border colours have changed from blue to grey to be inline with the CMS 6 interface.
Working with the ElencySolutions.MultipleProperty property controls
To use ElencySolutions.MultipleProperty you will need to reference the ElencySolutions.MultipleProperty assembly from your web application project. You will also need to add a reference to System.Runtime.Serialization.
The assembly is dependent on EPiServer CMS 6.
The assembly and sample code can be downloaded from codeplex.
