I have a GUI Extension written for Tridion 2011 that adds a new column to the listview of the GUI. Now I want to port it to Web 8. I am afraid I need to update my config file, and don't know what values to use. Any references in the Tridion GUI I can follow? It doesn't fail, but the filename is not written to the GUI.

Code is here: https://github.com/rcurlette/filename-in-gui

Config file:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<Configuration xmlns="http://www.sdltridion.com/2009/GUI/Configuration/Merge"

  <resources cache="true">
    <cfg:filters />
  <definitionfiles />
      <ext:dataextender type="GuiExtensions.DataExtenders.FilenameInGui, FilenameInGui" name="PageFilenameExtender">
        <ext:description>Page filename</ext:description>
      <ext:editorextension target="CME">
            <ext:extension name="MyColumnExtender" assignid="MyColumnExtenderID">
                  <column xmlns="http://www.sdltridion.com/2009/GUI/extensions/List"
                                      id="Page Filename" type="data" title="Page Filename"
                                      selector="@pageFilename" translate="String" />
                  <column xmlns="http://www.sdltridion.com/2009/GUI/extensions/List"
                                      id="URI" type="data" title="URI"
                                      selector="@ID" translate="String" />
                <ext:view name="DashboardView" />

  <contextmenus />
  <localization />
    <!-- /Views/Default.aspx</defaultpage> -->
    <!-- /Views/Default.aspx</navigatorurl> -->
    <listdefinitions />
    <customconfiguration />
  • Hey Robert. Did you ever get a solution for this? Is the config file different for Web 8? – Jonathan Williams Jun 4 '17 at 14:50
