Add the URL field directive
The following example demonstrates how to add a
sfFileUrlField directive in a widget designer's view.
To enable AngularJs to link the
sfFileUrlField directive in your custom designer view, you must load the script of the directive and add a dependency to the module:
- 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. As a result, the file content should be similar to the following:
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, right before the definition of your custom view controller, place the following code snippet:
In the code above, the URL of the selected CSS is stored in the
DesignerView.YourView.cshtml file, place the following tag where you want to render the
