Good day all,
could someone explain or reference explanation what is the difference between UIDescriptor and EditorDescriptor?
I'm not a CMS UI guy, so here's my simple understanding
UIDescriptor is the "template" for the content type, like when you want to hide/show tabs, views etc.
EditorDescriptor is more "for the property" when you can define the widget you want to use for your property. But you can also use it to change how your content is displayed (using IMetadataExtender which it implements).
Hmm, that clears the picture like what should be used when modifying the UI. Thanks for the direction on that. I am also looking for the same thing, like I would link to modify the link selection model popup to restrict the selection types.
@Quan: Can you provide link to some helping docs on that? I seached but I did't find more relative.
https://world.episerver.com/documentation/developer-guides/CMS/user-interface/Editing-objects/ provides some details about working with EditorDescriptor.
