    Help with Complex Data Type for a 3rd party Slider Control

    I need assistance to create a complex data type for a 3rd party Slider Control.

    Each Slider page will have a background image, link as well as a collection of configuration items which I will refer to as SliderPageItem.

    I am looking for some assistance in creating a complex data type called SliderPageItem

    The SliderPageItem will have the a number of properties that the content editor will assign values to such as final_top, duration, image, link url etc.

    Can anyone provide an example of a data grid like control within a custom datatype similar to the Related Links data type where the user can add/edit row items for Caption, Link etc, but in my case each row item would be a SliderPageItem.

    Is there any base data type that I can use to build this out or example to build as custom data type.

    Cheers

    Hi John,

    I think the best option is to create a property editor using one of these packages :

    Thanks Dave, the Nested Data Type was perfect for my needs, my slider editor experience is working well now.

    Thanks so much!
