ElencySolutions.MultipleProperty v1.1 Released

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.

For full usage instructions please check out this document.
