    Custom macro parameters popup - TinyMCE

    In TinyMCE you can add macro's by setting the 'use in editor' property. Within TinyMCE a popup will open to enter all the macro's parameters. So far so good. In most cases the different parameter types can do the job. But... In this case I need more advanced parameters.

    The macro I like to add is a .NET UserControl that has its own page with configuration settings. I like to be able to load this configuration window when I select the macro in TinyMCE. So instead of opening the Umbraco popup with the Umbraco parameters I like to open my own popup or window.

    Is it possible to do something like this?

    Hi Martijn,

    This is possible but you have to create a TinyMCE plugin and configure it donĀ“t know exactly how. One other thing that you might check is the IMacroGuiRendering interface , with that interface you can define your own Macro Parameter properties and then use the existing Umbraco Macro properties popup with your custom Macro Parameters.

    Look at this thread for some detailed info

    Hope it helps you,

    Thanks for putting me into the right direction!

    I think I will create a custom macro datatype which will show a hyperlink to the configuration page.
