Tree Definition Samples
Learn to create tree definitions by example
Here we collected a few sample CMS Console applications that you may want to refer to when creating your own applications.
If you are a "learning-by-example" kind of person, a good start for you is to first check out our Tree Definition Primer. It shows how to create a custom tree of events grouped by years.
You can then go on to learn the samples here.
If you need some in-depth explanation, please see to the Guide to CMS Console Applications for detailed information about creating CMS Console applications.
To learn about elements and their attributes you can use when building your tree definitions for CMS Console applications, please the Tree Schema Definition Reference.
The following are sample CMS Console applications, you can learn to create:
- An application that CMS Console users can attach to a page to specify downloadable files like PDF readings from the media archive
- An application that adds a button to the toolbar in the Content and Media perspectives that shows a page’s or media file’s GUID in a popup when clicked
- An application that adds a custom tree of tasks grouped by projects and their status (two-level group folders) in the Content perspective and allows CMS Console users to manage them
It also includes a list of CMS Packages with tree definitions you can install and learn from.
