Content picker in custom MVC report?



Henrik made a nice example here how to add a MVC report in the Reports section, nice.

But how do I add a content picker into my report? Looks like the reports are "dojo free" and the other standard reports in Epi are old .aspx files.

Are you willing to pick a content item dynamically or will it work if you pass that from config settings?

Can you also give a highlevel idea of what you want to acheive, so there may be other implementation approach that you can try?

Preferrable is of course that you can pick it dynamicly like a normal content selector.

What I want to do is to search for specific products and variants but I waat the user to be able to select a specific category to search within. 
I have solved it by rendering the catalog tree in a dropdown, it does the job but of course a regular content picker would have been better.

In that case, following link may help in rendering the content picker

This will help :)

Yes, that helped and was really useful. But there was no way to get a dialog containing the catalog tree, just the page tree.
Dates worked just fine so I guess I will just use that.

The dialog I'm looking for is the one shown when adding a category to a catalog content in the Commerce GUI or adding the catalog in the asset pane.
I also tried to add the catalog as an Id to the dialog:


But that threw an exception.

For that I will need to do little RnD. 

Did you tried passing ID with this url? (below)

OK, then I will do some hit and trails to get some solution.
