Selecting content

The following built-in content selector examples show ways to set up content selector properties to create links to other content, such as selecting a page in a page reference property.

Built-in content selectors

public virtual PageReference PageReference { get; set; }
    
    [UIHint(UIHint.Block)]
    public virtual ContentReference BlockReference { get; set; }
    
    [UIHint(UIHint.Image)]
    public virtual ContentReference ImageReference { get; set; }
    
    [UIHint(UIHint.Video)]
    public virtual ContentReference VideoReference { get; set; }
    
    [UIHint(UIHint.MediaFile)]
    public virtual ContentReference AnyMediaFileReference { get; set; }
    
    [UIHint(UIHint.BlockFolder)]
    public virtual ContentReference BlockFolderReference { get; set; }
    
    [UIHint(UIHint.MediaFolder)]
    public virtual ContentReference MediaFolderReference { get; set; }

Customizing a selector

The following example, which you can customize, shows how to override the default root of the repository.

[UIHint("teaserblock")]
    public virtual ContentReference TeaserBlockReference { get; set; }
    
    [EditorDescriptorRegistration(TargetType = typeof(ContentReference), UIHint = "teaserblock")]
    public class BlockReferenceEditorDescriptor : ContentReferenceEditorDescriptor<TeaserBlock>
    {
        public override IEnumerable<ContentReference> Roots
        {
            get
            {
                //Sample to override the default root for the repository.
                //Take the reference from configuration or site initialization and do not hard-code it.
                return new ContentReference[] { new ContentReference(90 ) };
            }
        }
    }
