Migrating the GenericContent Web Control
I have a simple 3.7 User Control with the
<sfWeb:GenericContent runat="server" ID="GenericContent1" />
control placed on it. (It is wrapped by some layout html)
In the code behind I have the class inheriting the IGenericContent interface.
public partial class SiteControls_GreenBox : System.Web.UI.UserControl, IGenericContent
This allows users to use the inbuilt editor to add content and the control just wraps the content with specific html for layout and styling.
How should I convert this for SF 4.3 and make sure that the content gets migrated over through the migration tool?
With the next build coming next week we'll provide API that will support migration of custom widgets. You'll be required to implement a class that returns a Sitefinity 4 widget from a given 3.7 widget type. We'll also provide functionality for automatic coping of the properties if the interfaces of both the 3.7 and Sitefinity 4 widgets are the same.
