    Hi Rozelle

    Grid Editors are not based on datatypes. If you want to add your own you can read more about it in Grid Layout the documentation. Specifically under Grid Editors and Build your own Grid Editor

    If you do want to use datatypes/doctypes you could have a look at the Doc Type Grid Editor package. Alternatively, Le blender might be what you're looking for.

    Hope that helps

    Hi Rozelle,

    There's Umbraco Documentation on this over here. After following the steps outlined in this tutorial, you will have a new property to add to your Grid Layout.

    You "can" avoid using Angular altogether by making use of a great package called LeBlender.

    Not quite the same thing, but there's some good documentation here as well for creating property editors. They are mostly the same in their make-up, so you should find plenty of take-away's from those articles.

    Hi Rune

    Thank you for your help . I will have a look at that and see what I can do , I think the LeBlender package looks like a good option

    Thanks Roz

    The partial view '/views/partials/grid/editors/Carousel.cshtml' was not found or no view engine supports the searched locations. The following locations were searched: /views/partials/grid/editors/Carousel.cshtml

    Hi Rozelle

    I think you have to create '/views/partials/grid/editors/Carousel.cshtml' and do some razor coding for make it works. Look please for LeBlender documentation, there is some example how to render data in Razor.
