    Related Links Manifest file

    Hi,

    Im looking for the Package.Manifest files for the RelatedLinks control. I want to create my own control based on the RelatedLinks control and as I dont want to fully reinvent the wheel I would like to use the existing code but change it ever so slightly in my own App_plugins section.

    Unfortunately the model.config is undefined and I need to know where this is set up in the Manifest file.

    Is there available source out there that can allow me to populate the config for that control?

    Thanks

    Jon

    Hi

    The Related Links control (along with other built in umbraco controls) doesn't have a manifest file.

    the details that would be defined in the manifest file are set in an attribute on the RelatedLink class in the code

    namespace Umbraco.Web.PropertyEditors
    {
        [PropertyEditor(Constants.PropertyEditors.RelatedLinks2Alias, "Related links", "relatedlinks", ValueType = PropertyEditorValueTypes.Json, Icon = "icon-thumbnail-list", Group = "pickers")]
        public class RelatedLinks2PropertyEditor : PropertyEditor
        {
    

    The Javascript for the control is merged into the main umbraco javascript files during the build/release process of umbraco, so those files are not specified. but the live in the source here:

    https://github.com/umbraco/Umbraco-CMS/tree/dev-v7/src/Umbraco.Web.UI.Client/src/views/propertyeditors/relatedlinks

    Sometime there are underlying angular directives and controls you can re-use in your own property editors, but I think the related links one might not be that reusable as it standds. but the code in the folder above should give you a good starting point.
