I'm trying to enable a GUI extension button on all places except DashboardView, UserView, UserGroupView and PopupsView.

To do this, I have applied <ext:Remove> with list of views

<ext:remove>
    <ext:extension id="GreetingsBtn" name="Greetings">
        <ext:apply>
            <ext:view name="DashboardView" />
            <ext:view name="PublishQueueView" />
            <ext:view name="UserView" />
            <ext:view name="UserGroupView" />
            <ext:view name="PopupsView" />
        </ext:apply>
    </ext:extension>
</ext:remove>

Sample configuration file is as follows:

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

        <ext:editorextensions>
            <ext:editorextension target="CME">

                        <ext:extension pageid="HomePage" groupid="ManageGroup" name="Greetings" assignid="GreetingsBtn">
                            <ext:command>ExtGreetings</ext:command>
                            <ext:title>Greetings</ext:title>
                            <ext:dependencies>

                                <cfg:dependency>Greetings.Commands</cfg:dependency>
                            </ext:dependencies>
                            <ext:apply>
                                <ext:view name="*" />
                            </ext:apply>
                        </ext:extension>
                    </ext:add>
                    <ext:remove>
                        <ext:extension id="GreetingsBtn" name="Greetings">
                            <ext:apply>
                                <ext:view name="DashboardView" />
                                <ext:view name="PublishQueueView" />
                                <ext:view name="UserView" />
                                <ext:view name="UserGroupView" />
                                <ext:view name="PopupsView" />
                            </ext:apply>
                        </ext:extension>
                    </ext:remove>
                </ext:ribbontoolbars>
            </ext:editorextension>
        </ext:editorextensions>
        <ext:dataextenders/>
        <ext:modelextensions/>
        <ext:resourceextensions/>
    </extensions>
    <commands>
        <cfg:commandset id="Greetings.Commandset">
            <cfg:command name="ExtGreetings" implementation="Extensions.Greetings.ExtGreetings" />
            <cfg:dependencies>
                <cfg:dependency>Greetings.Scripts</cfg:dependency>
            </cfg:dependencies>
        </cfg:commandset>
    </commands>
    <contextmenus />
    <localization />
    <settings>
        <defaultpage/>
        <navigatorurl/>
        <editurls/>
        <listdefinitions />
        <itemicons />
        <theme>
            <path>/Themes/Carbon</path>
        </theme>
        <customconfiguration />
    </settings>
</Configuration>

Unfortunately, only for the popup views it doesn't work. List of popups I have come across so far are InsertComponentPresentation and TableEditor.

Ideally, I want to remove extension button from all PopupsView through configuration file only (No JS change).

I feel that technically it is possible but I didn't find a way so far.

Please suggest.

This is the cool one:

Try this:

<ext:remove>
    <ext:extension id="GreetingsBtn" name="Greetings">
        <ext:apply evaluator="UIBeardcore.Extension.RemoveButtons, UIBeardcore.Extension"/>
    </ext:extension>
</ext:remove>

Then implement evaluator + some custom logic inside:

namespace UIBeardcore.Extension
{
    public class RemoveButtons : IEvaluate
    {
        public bool isApplicable(Dictionary<string, string> context)
        {
            string viewName;
            if (context.TryGetValue("forView", out viewName))
            {
                return viewName.Contains("Popup");
            }

            return false;
        }
    }
}

And have a nice day

I found a workaround solution for PopupsView. I need to replace <ext:view name="PopupsView" /> with popup specific view (Example: For table editor, use <ext:view name="TableEditorPopup" />)

<ext:remove>
    <ext:extension id="GreetingsBtn" name="Greetings">
        <ext:apply>
            <ext:view name="DashboardView" />
            <ext:view name="PublishQueueView" />
            <ext:view name="UserView" />
            <ext:view name="UserGroupView" />
            <ext:view name="TableEditorPopup" />
        </ext:apply>
    </ext:extension>
</ext:remove>

For now it works as expected for few popups. Still I need a proper solution for this. If anyone has a proper solution, please suggest.

  • Have you tried doing something like this: <ext:view name="*Popup" />? – Thomas Hendrickx Oct 8 '14 at 13:19
  • @ThomasHendrickx: Yeah thomas, I have tried that as well but no luck – Siva Charan Oct 8 '14 at 13:56
