Toolbar Builder Guide – Parameters


The examples below explain how to use the parameters: parameter. Starting in v15.07+ we recommend using the Tweak API instead.

The Parameters are used in the command.

Parameters can be specified globally for the entire toolbar, or just for a specific button.

The parameters is an optional parameter and must be named.

Parameters for the Entire Toolbar

Parameters can be set globally for the toolbar, or specific for each button.

To set it globally, you have these options:

  1. On the first creation of the object - eg. Kit.Toolbar.Default(item, parameters: "contentType=BlogPost")
  2. When setting global parameters eg. Kit.Toolbar.Default().Parameters(prefill: "contentType=BlogPost")

If your code does more than one of these, the last value will be the one used.

Parameters for One Specific Button

Many methods accept an optional parameters. Is that case the button would have their own parameters.

So you could do something like this

// Normal toolbar for Content, but also has an edit-button for the header
var tlb = Kit.Toolbar.Default(Content).New(parameters: "contentType=BlogPost");

Parameters as String or Object

There are two ways you can specify parameters. Either as a string - like this:

parameters: "contentType=BlogPost&something=other"

Or as an object (since v14.04) - like this:

parameters: new { contentType = "BlogPost", something = "other" }

How Prefill works with Parameters

Internally two infos prefill and parameters are merged.

So technically you could also set prefill on the parameters, but we believe it's easier to read if each is set explicitly.
