Adding a widget to 'Add Stuff' widget list

Mar 31, 2011 at 3:59 PM

Hi I have just started working with the Dropthings source code 2.7.5 version, I am planning to use it in building a widget based website.

I am kind of struck with a small problem but it's taking hell lot of time. I Have created a 'User Control' and placed it inside widgets folder. I have also made an entry for the same in database table 'Widgets' and 'WidgetInRoles'.

When I run the website this new user control doesnt show up under the add stuff widget list. Kindly please let me know if anything more has to be done. I am right now stuck with this small looking proeblem due to lack of documenation on dropthings. please somebody guide me on this.

hey sankit to add user control as a widget in dropthings framework. you need to go manage widget page which is located in admin folder.

you need to login with admin to visit this page.

and on this page add your user controls details. dropthing will convert it into widget. and store information of your usercontrol in database.
