Edit a Visualizer

Edit a Visualizer

  • Evoq Engage
Note: Visualizers provided by DNN cannot be edited, replaced, exported, or deleted.

Prerequisites

  • Microservices must be enabled for your site.

Steps

  1. Go to the Visualizers tab.
    Visualizers
  2. Search for the visualizer you want, then click/tap on its icon.

    Visualizers list - Click/Tap the visualizer you want.

    You can browse the list of visualizers, or you can use Search field.

  3. Configure the properties of the visualizer.

    Visualizer Details tab

    Field Description
    Name The name of the visualizer.
    Tip: Include the name of the content type in the visualizer's name to make it easy to find all visualizers associated with the content type. If you plan to have multiple visualizers for the same content type, add a short phrase that briefly describes its function to distinguish it from other visualizers.
    Description A short description of the visualizer.
    Icon The icon for the visualizer.
    Content Type The content type to associate with this visualizer.
    Warning: Changing the content type will replace any existing HTML code in the Editor > Template editor.
  4. In the Editor tab, design the visualizer.
    1. In the Template editor, enter the HTML code for the visualizer.
      • Enter HTML code in Header and Footer to enclose the entire list of content items.
      • Enter HTML code in Template to enclose the individual content items in the list.
      Example: If you want the content items to be displayed as bullets in an unordered list,
      • Header can contain the opening <ul> tag.
      • Template can contain <ul>{{itemname}}</ul>
      • Footer can contain the closing </ul> tag.

      Each placeholder is the reformatted name of the content field enclosed in double curly brackets. Example: The placeholder for a field called Recipe Name is {{recipeName}}.

      If the field has multiple values (e.g., multiple choice fields), the values are comma-separated.

      Tip: Choose the content type in the Details tab before editing the visualizer HTML code. The fields of the selected content type are added to the Template editor as placeholders for the field value(s). They are also displayed in a dropdown that appears when you press Ctrl+Space.

      Content > Visualizers tab > Editor > Template with field placeholders

      Tip: Because the placeholders hide the inner tags, such as <img/> or <p/>, you can wrap the placeholders with <div/> tags with class names or id names that you can refer to in the CSS code. Example: <div class="myimgdiv">{{ myImg }}</div>
    2. In the Style editor, enter CSS code for the visualizer.

      Content > Visualizers tab > Editor > Style

      Tip: If you wrapped a placeholder, you can access the inner tag if you wrapped them in a named <div/> tag. Example: .myimgdiv img { width: 50px }
    3. In the Script editor, enter JavaScript code for the visualizer, if needed.

      Content > Visualizers tab > Editor > Style

  5. Save.
