When working with MVC-based widgets and templates, you create and manage files of specific types and generally store them in a specific location in your project. You follow naming conventions that define how Sitefinity CMS prioritizes and resolves views and assets like scripts, for example.
Say you are creating a designer view, named Custom, for a News widget. The following table summarizes how you name your files and where you store them: naming conventions and location of the files you need:
A template for the custom view in the widget designer.
A template for the custom view of a dynamic content type widget. <DynamicContentTypeName> is the name of the dynamic content type, for example Country. If you created a dynamic type with name Countries, the folder name must still be named with singular form.
A JSON file that defines a set of additional scripts (and their dependencies), required by the designer view, to be rendered.
Has the same name as the view template.
designerview-custom.js containing AngularJS controller named CustomCtrl
In addition, Sitefinity CMS follows a strict convention for resolving views for widgets, based on where the view files are located. For details, see Priorities for resolving views.
