New Tutorial on Custom Control Templates

Question asked by feedler on Apr 15, 2010
Hi all,

I posted a tutorial on how to create a custom control template on my blog:

http://blog.processed.info/2010/04/custom-categories-a-custom-control-template-for-hierarchical-properties/

It describes how the share UI can be adjusted to allow the selection of a properties' value(s) from a hierarchical structure. The structure can be edited during runtime and is backed by a folder structure, the values are stored as associations to the corresponding folders. I had the idea for this when I searched for a possibility to define the place of physically filed documents within the metadata of the corresponding electronic version in Alfresco. Thereby duplicate entries shall be prevented and at the same time the flexibility shall be given to adjust the structure itself during runtime (create, rename, move).

I hope this tutorial also helps others. Feedback is very welcome! :)

Cheers

Chris
