    Confused about custom section and trees, angular js and webforms

    In Umbraco v7.2.8 I want to create a custom section to display some reports.

    The tree in the section would look like this:

     > Reports
        Customer Orders
        Product Orders
        Product Stock
    

    Reports is the root node which opens to show each report which can be selected.

    The interface for each report would be different.

    • Customer Orders would let the user select a member and then show their orders.
    • Product Orders would let the user select a product and display the orders.
    • Product stock would just list all products and their stock level.

    All the examples that I have found on developing a custom section and tree involve the use of Angular JS views and controllers. That's fair enough, it's the latest way of doing it.

    I've also come across a few older packages that are using webforms (aspx) and I can see that a lot of Umbraco section trees themselves use this.

    I'm more familiar with webforms but I'm happy to try the new road.

    The problem is that I want different functionality for each of the reports and from what I can understand I will only get one html view and controller for all three. i.e. /App_Plugins/MyReports/backoffice/reports/edit.html

    I've seen packages that use webforms use different aspx files for each node so can I do the same with the Angular method?

    It's all rather confusing to me at the moment.

    Maybe I'm going about it the wrong way as I don't really need all the tree actions that are available for a node. I just want to display a report when the node is selected.

    Thanks,

    Matt

    This video about this package and its source code really helped me.

    So my thanks goes to Warren.
