Detecting Edit Mode

All Replies

How would I go about detecting, in the master page, if a page was in edit mode? And if it were in edit mode, how would I apply alternate css?  The issue I have is that an attribute I need in the css of the site to achieve the client's design is causing some issues in edit mode. I would just like to detect at the master page level if the content page is in edit mode, and if so, apply alternate css.

Thanks in advance,

Ok, so I know how to detect if in edit mode, I just am not sure of how to apply alternate css.

Hello Brett,

You could use the following code snippet in the <head> section of your .master file:

<% if (InDesignMode) %>
<link rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css" href="Css/Css1.css" />
<% else %>
<link rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css" href="Css/Css2.css" />
<% %>

You`ll need to do this:

using Telerik.Sitefinity.Model;
protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    if (this.IsDesignMode())

You can also use this.IsPreviewMode() and/or this.IsBackend() accordingly to your need.
