Utilizing Category Selector in Custom MVC Widget

Michael Legacy asked on March 25, 2019 17:49

Hey guys! Is there a way to add the built-in Category Selector editor to a custom Widget Inline editor, or will I just have to build a custom implementation of it through the standard method described here:

Creating an MVC Widget Showcase Site with Kentico EMS and MVC – Custom Widgets and Inline Editors

Essentially what I'm attempting to build is a Widget that allows a user to select a category, then the Controller/View will handle grabbing articles in that Category and displaying in a "featured list" partial view. I want content editors to be able to add these via the Page Builder, which is why I'm heading down the Widget route. If there is a way to utilize a built in editor rather than building a new one, that's preferred, otherwise I could populate a multi-select list from the Widgets controller if needed.

Just looking for some advice on the route to take, thanks!
