U4-6402 - Grid config file should be merged with package.manifests

Currently there is just one grid configuration file, package editors would need a script to modify this single file which isn't ideal.

We should add the grid configuration portion to be able to exist in the package.manifest of a package. That way a package can work without having to modify any files it doesn't ship with, which also greatly improves the uninstall process too.

You can now have "gridEditors" in your package.manifest file, for example:

{ "propertyEditors": [ ], "javascript": [ "/App_Plugins/Articulate/BackOffice/Dashboards/blogimporter.controller.js", "/App_Plugins/Articulate/BackOffice/PropertyEditors/themepicker.controller.js" ], "gridEditors": [ { "name": "My Quote", "alias": "myQuote", "view": "textstring", "icon": "icon-quote", "config": { "markup": "

" } } ] }

This doesn't appear to work in 7.2.4?

The same editor definition works fine in the main grid configuration file, but not in a package manifest.

@Shandem I also can't seem to get this to work in v7.2.4....?

Shannon Deminick 30 Mar 2015, 21:28:57

I'll have a look, what does your manifest contain?

Geoff Beaumont 31 Mar 2015, 09:02:51

@Shandem this is what we have, edited down somewhat (I can send you the full version if you let me know where to send it): { "javascript": [ "/App_Plugins/MyPlugin/small-hero/controller.js", "/App_Plugins/MyPlugin/document-links-by-category/controller.js" ], "css": [ "~/App_Plugins/MyPlugin/grid-editors.css" ], "gridEditors": [ { "name": "Small Hero", "alias": "small-hero", "view": "/App_Plugins/MyPlugin/small-hero/editortemplate.html", "render": "/Views/Partials/Grid/Editors/SmallHero.cshtml", "icon": "icon-presentation", "config": { "image": { "size": { "width": 1200, "height": 185 } }, "link": { "maxNumberOfItems": 1, "minNumberOfItems": 0 } } }, { "name": "Document Links By Category", "alias": "document-links-by-category", "view": "/App_Plugins/MyPlugin/document-links-by-category/editortemplate.html", "render": "/Views/Partials/Grid/Editors/DocumentLinksByCategory.cshtml", "icon": "icon-umb-members" } ] }

The same editor definitions work fine in grid.editors.config.js

It's an issue with multiple grid editors defined, if you have one it works. I'll fix this up.

Jeavon Leopold 19 May 2015, 08:55:03

@Shandem did you fix up the multiple issue for 7.2.5?

Shannon Deminick 20 May 2015, 01:29:53

Yes it should all be resolved and working: 0eac50cebaef27a4debb5ab94a56b1e2b4a5564a
