Dependency fields on properties in widget

Evine Beursken asked on January 4, 2017 09:59

I have created a widget called link in which I would like the option to select an icon (for example youtube icon, facebook icon).

In order to do so I have: A widget based on the web part Link/Button. I have added a new property called IconSelection (text, dropdownlist with options:


In the standard property LinkText I would like to use this value. This icon is shown by using a span.

For example when selecting rss the html should look like this:

<a id="RSSFeedLink" href="/nl-nl/rssoverview/">
 <span class="ico rss"></span>
  RSS Feed

In order to achieve this I have added the following to the HTMLEnvelope before of the LinkText property: <span class="ico {%IconSelection.Value#%}"></span>

However, it does not work. Is it even possible to use the value of one property in another property? I did select 'has depending fields' for the IconSelection property and 'depends on another field' for the LinkText property.

Have you added new property to code behind file and registered in Kentico? If this has been done I'd inject this property value into markup with regular asp syntax:

<span class="ico <%# IconSelection%>"></span>

I don't think Kentico resolves marco in web part layout...

Thanks for the answer. I hoped it would be possible without creating a custom web part for it, that would make it easier but it will work with a custom web part!
