Custom Element Not Appearing on Form


Hey Everyone,

I am making a custom dropdown following this example (

The admin section seems to be working, but I cannot get the item (the View) to appear on the form.  I am not getting any errors, but I also cannot step through the Razor code. I cannot figure out what I am missing.

This is where the cshtml is stored.


Does anyone have ideas on how to troubleshoot this and get it working?

Just for troubleshooting purposes are you able to make changes to one of the out of the box Form Element views (you will need a copy of those stored in the same location) and have that show up when you view the page?

Thanks @KennyG (I don't think the @ thing works...)

Sorry for the slow response, this thing has taken me down a rabbit hole, but yeah, that helped.  I had an error with the Model.GetItems() returning the right stuff and then I think the View has to be named the same as the block.  This last bit was not obvious to me.   I am sure it is written down somewhere.

Alright...   nothing to see here.  Thanks for chiming in!
