    Can I use an Umbraco Content/Media Picker to select docs/media?

    Hi Tim,

    I'm importing data from a previous CMS and have tens of thousands of paper laid records. From what I've read this may be too much for Umbraco to handle so I implemented the following custom tables:

     paperlaid (basic details)
        pl_pk int <-- unique id
        pl_legislature_fk int <-- Umbraco Doc id
    
     paperlaid_sitting
       pls_pk int <-- unique id
       pls_pl_fk  int <-- foreign key to paper laid
       pls_sitting_fk int <-- Umbraco Doc id
    
     paperlaid_media
          plm_pk int <-- unique id
          plm_pl_fk int <-- foreign key to paper laid
          plm_media_fk <-- Umbraco Media id
    

    A paper laid needs to be linked to:

    • an Umbraco document of content type legislature,
    • one or more Umbraco documents of content type sitting
    • one or more media files.

    I had created my own controller/angular views to handle this before UI-O-Matic became available. However, since this is my first Umbraco project, the code is nowhere near as cleanly implemented or extensible as yours.

    Would it be possible to add options to a field to declare which custom content/media picker should be used to render the field in the UI and then save the id of the chosen item?

    Thanks

    Ver

    Hi Ver,

    Of course, you can specify a view on an UIOMaticField, check out the docs here http://uiomatic.readthedocs.org/en/latest/04.CustomPropertyViews/

    Let me know if you have any further questions.

    Cheers, Tim

    Content and media picker are already default ones you can use

    http://uiomatic.readthedocs.org/en/latest/03.DefaultPropertyViews/

    ANd you can of course extend UIOMatic with your own custom property views (it's very similar to building a prop editor)

    Hi Tim,

    How can I use a Multiple Media picker, in order for the user to select multiple images?

    Thanks
