I am trying to implement this tab initialize extender Tab Initalizer Extender, Question related to this I asked earlier was Related Question

Before this extension I was already having some gui extension running on server, I added Tab Initalizer Extender configuration to the same configuration, please see below:

<cfg:group name="Extensions.Tab.Views.Tabs.SelectAllCheckboxExtension" merge="always">
        <cfg:file type="script">/client/commands/TranslationJobSelectAll/SelectAllCheckbox.js</cfg:file>                

            <ext:editorextension target="CME">
                            <ext:extension assignid="selectallcheckbox" name="selectallcheckbox">
                                    <ext:view name="TranslationJobView">  
                                        //Do I need to create a usercontrol over here, I just want to add my "Select All" Checkbox to   TranslationJobView View                         


Any idea why my mapped javascript is not getting loaded as I can't get any alert from the javascript.


<cfg:extensiongroup name="SelectAllExtensionGroup">
    <cfg:extension target="Tridion.TranslationManager.UI.Editor">

<cfg:group name="SelectAll">
        <cfg:file type="script">/TranslationJobSelectAll/SelectAllCheckbox.js</cfg:file>

  • I would recomment to make your own extension to not mess up with the one you already have. It`s easy :) : Check-out the tutorial: Extensibility | Creating Editor Extension

  • If you want to extend Translation managed you should use <ext:editorextension target="Tridion.TranslationManager.UI.Editor">

  • "Extendable Areas" are not supported in TM views, unfortunately.

  • The best way to add the js file to current implementation is to associate it with the one of existing groups. Good how-to example you can find in Eric's reply in neighbor post I'd suggest the Tridion.TranslationManager.UI.Editor.Views.TranslationJob group to be extended

  • thanks...sure I will go with separate extension....in point 2 you suggest to use <ext:editorextension target="Tridion.TranslationManager.UI.Editor"> instead of <ext:editorextension target="CME"> right?....in point 4 can you please more clarify about "is to associate it with the one of existing groups" as Eric examples does not clears my doubt Commented Jul 3, 2013 at 14:12
  • +2 In point yes, if you want to extend an Editor, you should put the editor name into target attribute. Check your System.config to verify your TM editor name. Commented Jul 3, 2013 at 14:24

    +4 check-out this video tridion.uibeardcore.com/2013/04/dependencies In simple all UI Resoures are organized in groups. If you want to add new functionality to existing functionality, you should create your resource group, and extend the existing one. to do so, you should: create your group with JS file as a resource -> configure existing group extension via extensiongroup -> register this extension as a resourceextension; Commented Jul 3, 2013 at 14:29
  • Thanks..I have added sample configuration in my edit section...Is it ok? as currently I can't test it (Out of office now) ....suggest any changes if there? InsertAfter is not clear Commented Jul 3, 2013 at 15:44
  • Yes, the sample should be fine. target is the attribute which specifies the group being extended; insertafter attribute specifies a group to be inserted after the group being extended. I would also strongly recommend to have a groups names in an extension namespace. So instead of SelectAll group, you will have for instance Extension.TranslationManager.UI.Editor.SelectAll Commented Jul 3, 2013 at 16:36
