Custom rendering of images added in XHtmlString



Is it possible to add a custom rendering view for images when they are added through the XHtmlString property?

With custom I mean through controller or directly to a DisplayTemplate.

/ Thanks

It's possible. However content is rendered as block elements inside TinyMCE, so you can't add them inside e.g. a paragraph or float them to the left.

In Webform you inherit from ContentControlBase and set the type to your image content data type, e.g. ImageData.

Goaral, I didn't hear anything more from Andreas, have you looked at the links I provided?

Yeah actually the two combined helper me out now :).

What i missed was UIDescriptor<ImageFile> :

public class ArticlePageDescriptor : UIDescriptor<ImageFile>, IEditorDropBehavior
public EditorDropBehavior EditorDropBehaviour { get; set; }

public ArticlePageDescriptor()
EditorDropBehaviour = EditorDropBehavior.CreateContentBlock;
