Optional Parameters

There are optional parameters for you to edit:
  • position: Position of Edit Link
  • linkColour: The colour of the link text
  • editMessage: The text in the link
  • margin: The number of pixels from the edges. This only applies if the outerPosition is set as fixed, which it is by default.
  • zindex: The z-index
  • umbracoEditContentUrl: The umbraco edit content link. If this changes, you can update it.
  • fontSize: The font size of the link, in pixels.
  • outerPosition: The position of the outer div. This allows you to do relative positioning.
  • linkPosition: The position of the link. This allows you to do absolute position inside a relative div.
  • outerClassName: This allows you to target the outer div in your own CSS.
  • linkClassName: This allows you to target the link in your own CSS.

Here is an example with all settings:
@Html.UmbracoEditLink(Model.Content, position: EditLinkPosition.TopLeft, linkColour: "#00aea2", editMessage: "Edit", margin: 10, zindex: 999, umbracoEditContentUrl: "/umbraco#/content/content/edit/", fontSize: 16, outerPosition: "fixed", linkPosition: "absolute", outerClassName: "edit-link-outer", linkClassName: "edit-link-inner")
