Last Thursday, we looked at how you could change the text of the modules in DotNetNuke. Today, we want to show you how to add that same capability to your own modules.
I saw this question last Thursday on Channel 9 that I’ve heard before. My guess is that there are enough people who have the same question that it’s worth addressing.
I know there’s probably a really good reason for this, but I can’t think of what it is, and it keeps bugging me. Why can’t you do
int x = 10;
string y = (string)x;
in C#? I mean, you could simply use x.ToString(), but why doesn’t the explicit cast do the same?
There are a number of DotNetNuke controls, which they call objects, that are available to the skin designer. This adds functionality to the page such as a link to login/logout, date/time, username, and others. Today’s post will list each of the objects that are available and what they do. Many are simple to implement, others require quite a bit more detail than we can go into today.
