Kentico Field Display Name

Tyler Penney asked on June 30, 2018 00:14

I have a content only page type with some custom fields. The page types are children of a container page type. 2 questions:

  1. How does Kentico determine the field that will be used as the display name (red arrow) once the type is saved?

  2. Can I make the display name a composite of two fields (the green arrows)? Would be a shame to make the user enter the same info multiple times (once for the display name, once for each field that makes up the display name).

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  1. You can define that name field on the actual page type in the Fields tab directly under the list of field names. There is a dropdown box you will select a field name from. The field has to be a text field and be required to show in that dropdown.
  2. You cannot use 2 fields for that name UNLESS you write a custom event handler to update the information
