Information Required for Custom Modules Creation

You are not authorized to post a reply.

    Hi All,

    I have DNN 9.11.0 installed up at my local. I want to create a custom module in which I need to implement all these 3 interfaces :

    • IPortable
    • ISearchable
    • IUpgradeable

    In methods of these interfaces I am not sure what code I need to write so that desired result could be achieved. I believe there must be some standard code which needs to be written in respective methods of these interfaces.

    Can any one please share link/code snippet/video url explaining the code which needs to be written.

      There are plenty of examples out there, but what are you trying to do, exactly? There's no requirement to implement all three, unless you have a real use case to do so. Otherwise, it's wasted time and code.

        In addition to Will's comments, there are several sets of templates that can be used to create modules of various types.

        For historical reasons, I mostly use "Christoc's" templates that install inside of Visual Studio. if you search in DNN area of GitHub you should be able to find them.

        There is also an old multi-part set of blog posts written by Clint Patterson that shows you how to use templates to create a module. My memory is that it is quite detailed.

        And, to repeat Will's question, what are you really trying to do? As is often the case, there may be other approaches to a particular end.,
