BlogEngine.NET - BookShelf Widget

by nmgomes

In order to complete my migration from 1.3 to 1.4 version I needed to replace the books control I had with a widget that do the same.

After a fast Google search I found no widget with such functionality.

Armed with lots of confidence I decided to create a new widget, the BookShelf widget, to meet my exact needs:

  • display the book thumbnail image
  • show the book name and book author name

The previous book control has been gently made available by John Dyer, and I simply didn't worry about the layout, I used the old one with minor changes on binding.

books books_edit

This widget is obviously editable since I want to manage the books in the shelf, so I create an edit interface where its very simple to add, edit and remove books.

As a final note, I can simply reaffirm that work with widgets is very simple and straight forward.

Download, try it, and naturally let me now if it meet your needs too.
