Add Page Guide from code

Today I got a question from Stephan Kvart who wants to add Page Guides (Quick Publishing) from code. If you are not familiar with the concept of Page guides I recommend reading about it here. He is as many others a PTB user and does not like the idea of adding guides in web.config. Using Reflector and some smart EPiServer people I was able to create page guides from code.

You need to add a reference to this dll EPiServer.Research.PageGuideHelper.dll. Then you can create a class, inherit from PageGuideExtension and add the attribute PageGuideAttribute.

[PageGuideAttribute]
    public class CreateNewsGuide : PageGuideExtension
    {
        public override string Name
        {
            get
            {
                return "Create News";
            }
        }
 
        public override string Title
        {   get
            {
                return "Create News Title";
            }       }
 
        public override string PageTypeName
        {
            get
            {
                return "[Public] News item";
            }
        }
 
        public override EPiServer.Core.PageReference DestinationPage
        {
            get { return new PageReference(4); }
        }
 
        public override System.Collections.Generic.List<string> Properties
        {
            get { return new System.Collections.Generic.List<string> { "PageName", "MainBody" }; }
        }
    }

They are automatically registered and it works well on my machine.

This code is provided as is without support.
