The CMSUniView control allows you to display document data from the Kentico CMS database in a hierarchical structure based on transformations without the need to write any additional code. Using hierarchical transformations, this control can be used to display documents with a varying design depending on their type and hierarchical level.
The content is specified using its Path, MaxRelativeLevel, ClassNames, CultureCode, WhereCondition and OrderBy properties. Data is retrieved using the SelectDocuments query of the specified document type. These queries can be found at Kentico CMS Site Manager -> Development -> Document types -> ... Edit specified document type ... -> Queries.
The CMSUniView is derived from the BasicUniView control.
It supports nested controls, read more in the Using nested controls topic.
The portal engine equivalent of the CMSUniView control is the Listings and viewers -> Documents -> Universal viewer web part.
