The following tutorial demonstrates how to add a Language selector in your widget's designer. You use the Language selector to select different cultures, defined in your Sitefinity CMS application.
Add Language selectors
- Sitefinity CMS automatically registers the scripts you need and, if no other designer view with explicitly set priority exists, Sitefinity CMS sets your designer view priority 1. In case you need to have full control over the scripts that are loaded or you want to set custom priority, you can alternatively create your own
DesignerView.YourView.json file. If you have a
JSON file that matches the convention (even if empty), this automatic scripts registration will not occur. In your
DesignerView.<YourView>.json file, add a
scripts array. The content of the file should be similar to the following:
For more information on the scripts that you must load, see List of selectors scripts reference.
- Sitefinity CMS automatically finds all AngularJS modules you rely on and references the widget designer to them. In case you rely on custom AngularJS modules or have logic that needs an AngularJS controller, you can create your own
designerview-<yourview>.js file. If you have a
.js file that matches the convention (even if empty), this automatic modules referencing will not occur. In your
designerview-<yourview>.js file, place the following code right before the definition of your custom view controller:
DesignerView.<YourView>.cshtml file, place the following tag where you want to render the Language selector:
NOTE: You must use the
sf-site attribute with the Language selector.
Get or set the selected culture
To load the culture for a specific site, you use the
sf-site attribute. You can use the optional attribute
sf-culture to access the selected culture. The value of these attributes are scope properties -
sfSite - that you must add in your widget's controller:
NOTE: If you do not supply an
sfSite attribute value, the Language selector is not rendered .
You can combine The Language selector to work alongside the Site selector to display the selected site's available cultures.
sf-site attribute has the following structure of the JSON properties:
sf-culture attribute has the following structure of the JSON properties:
