Just wondering if a v6-compatible version is in the works?
I am hoping to use Dewd to manage custom data that is linked to Umbraco members, does that sound feasible?
Sure thing. You can download the v6 compatible version from CodePlex at http://dewd.codeplex.com/releases/view/102966 (there are only minor changes since v1.3 to get v6 working, so don't mind the "beta", it's simply there because it hasn't been through the usual tests).
Sure, sounds feasible. Dewd doesn't support editing Umbraco members directly (because that's already possible in Umbraco), but you can always write a Dewd-repository that allows it, if need be.
Thanks Sune, that's great. Having now been able to revisit it, for the most part it seems to be working, and I'm looking forward to diving in and exploring what seems lieka great little package.
One thing I noticed, in the default config the 'Errors' view of the Log Viewer does not seem to be working. It just says 'No rows to display in the current view.'. The other views have a couple of pages of data. THe grid editing mode is what I am most interested in, do you know should this be working? (I have added the web.config reference as noted in the Dewd config.)
Also just to clarify, I don't want to edit member data using Dewd, what I am trying to set up is a custom table of 'Customers', with a one-to-many link from cmsMember. i.e. each Umbraco member will have a list of Customers to manage. So my initial question was really about setting up an interface where an admin could choose a Member somehow and see all the linked customers.
Just a quick reply. Have been on vacation, so no time for the DEWD the last few weeks :)
I think the Errors-view is empty, simply because there's no errors in your solution - just a guess though.
What you describe would probably be easy to do in DEWD v2.0, because you can generate the views dynamically (with very little code), so for example have one view per Member and then get a grid with the customers. However since v2.0 is still in a beta stage of development, I'm not sure I can recommend going that way. For v1.x one would have to make a new class that inherits from TableRepository and override the Views property to acheive the same, so more code in involved - and if C# is not your favorite thing, maybe this will be too much trouble.
Hi Sune, thanks for the update. You were right about the Errors view, I modified the SQL and it works fine.
Based on what you are saying I might be best off writing my own custom data type to handle CRUD operations on my customers table. Looking forward to trying out the method you describe in the 2.0 version, sounds really handy. Actually could that be a new feature of DEWD, or an offshoot package - basically a datagrid datatype that allows management of 'node-linked' custom table data? There would be a number of uses for such a datatype when it comes to integration projects. Esentially it could be configured in the same way as DEWD.
One final thing I noticed - the deeplinks to the content section do not work properly in the Umbraco node edit table (Umbraco v6).
There is probably a better way to link within the back office now, but adding target='_top' works around this issue.
Thanks for your help, please post here when you have released v2 so I can try it out.
Thank you as well for the input.
Would definitely be possible with a datatype as you describe based on DEWD, shouldn't be too difficult, will consider it.
Fixed the example problem in v1.4 with the target=top suggetion (too much going on with Belle to worry about best practice of the current v6 backoffice :).
I'll keep you posted on v2.0, shouldn't be long now.
