This tutorial demonstrates how to add a hierarchical taxon selector in a widget's designer view. You can select taxa from a hierarchical taxonomy like Categories or a custom classification of your choice. For more information about categories in Sitefinity CMS, see For developers: Hierarchical taxonomies. For more information on custom classifications in Sitefinity CMS, see Create custom classifications.
To add a Hierarchical taxon selector, in your DesignerView.YourView.cshtml file, place one of the following tags anywhere in the HTML code:
Single item selection:
Multiple items selection:
The values of the attributes are scope properties that you define in the MVC widget controller.
To access the selected value, you use the sf-selected-item and sf-selected-item-id attributes. If multiple selection of items is enabled, you must use the sf-selected-items and sf-selected-ids attributes. For more information on multiple selection of items, see Use content item selectors.
By default, the selector shows only categories but you can modify it to work with a hierarchical taxonomy of your choice. You do this by specifying a sf-taxonomy-id attribute that accepts a scope property holding the GUID of the taxonomy. For an example on how to find the ID of a taxonomy, see Hierarchical taxonomies API
You can specify the dialog header using the sf-dialog-header attribute. By default, the dialog header is Select but if you set sf-dialog-header="Department", then the header is Select Department.
