Without having tried it my self bit could you use a property of type LinkItemCollection?
You could then use IPermanentLinkMapper to get permanentlinks to your items which you then can store in the collection.
We have in our backlog a story that we should support collections of types (e.g. String, ContentReference etc) but I cant promise anything if/when that will be available.
Unless I've misunderstood the problem I would use a ContentArea.
I didn't think of ContentArea but of course that is a much better alternative. It is much nicer to work with than LinkItemCollection.
Ah. Thank you. ContentArea seems to do the trick.
Next thing is that editor needs to be able to drag my custom Service contents to the ContentArea. I thought about writing a gui plugin which lists all the custom IContents on the site, just like the one that lists Blocks. I'll get back to you if and when I stumble to any new problems :)
I'm a bit lost here with this new EpiServer 7 and its IContent model. Could someone please explain me some things.
Here's an example what I'm trying to do. I want a list of services somewhere and I need to be able to create (service) stations and link services to them.
In Epi6 I would've created Service-class as Page Type and then custom property to hold a list of Services but now in Epi7 I don't know how to do this. I want to create Service as IContent, since it doesn't have a template and is never rendered to user.
I went through the API but found nothing like ContentReferenceCollection, allthough I found ContentReference. I tried to use PageReferenceCollection but that keeps saying me that it cannot be mapped to a PropertyDefinitionType. I'm not even sure if this is the correct way to link custom IContent stuff to the pages.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
