This tutorial demonstrates how to add a taxon selector in a widget's designer view. You can select taxa from a flat taxonomy like Tags or a custom classification. For more information on Sitefinity CMS tag, see For developers: Flat taxonomies. For more information on custom classifications in Sitefinity CMS, see Create custom classifications.
The image below shows a flat taxon selector for the News widget:
To access the selected value, use the attributes sf-selected-item and sf-selected-item-id attributes. If you enabled multiple selection of items, you must use the sf-selected-items and sf-selected-ids attributes. For more information on multiple selection of items, see Feather: Using multiple content items selectors.
By default, the selector displays only tags, but you can modify it to work with a taxonomy of your choice. You do this by specifying a sf-taxonomy-id attribute, which acceps a scope property holding the GUID of the taxonomy:
To create the scope property, add the following code in your designer controller:
NOTE: You access the scope property using scope.properties.TaxonomyId.PropertyValue.
