Introduction

The following example shows how it is possible to add or remove components for a view through configuration, here to add a component to the plug-in path “Mainarea” of the view named “Test”:

XML
<episerver.shell>
    <viewManager>
        <views>
            <add name="Test">
                <settings>
                    <add name="AddTestComponent" transformationType="Add" 
                        definitionName="EPiServer.Shell.UI.Test.Fakes.FakeComponentDefinition" 
                        plugInArea="ShouldNotContainComponent" />
                </settings>
            </add>
        </views>
    </viewManager>
</episerver.shell>
definitionName usually maps against the full name of the class including namespace.
