Sitecore SPEAK Dialog Within Desktop
Here is a short useful tutorial for anyone wanting to add a SPEAK Dialog control within the Sitecore desktop view. Basically it uses a Sitecore sheer ui application as a proxy to point at the url of the SPEAK application.
- Create a Sitecore dialog application using Sitecore rocks within the core database.
SPEAK Dialog Application
- Create a standard application item under content / applications in the core database.Set the application field to an link pointing at the url at the SPEAK application.Example Raw Value:
- Create an application shortcut pointing at the application within the applications folder.
An example of this method can be seen in my bulk user permissions module on GitHub https://github.com/komainu85/SitecoreSPEAKBulkRolePermissions
The next stage is to use this method to create a command button in the content editor and pass in the context item using query string parameters.
I have discovered this method also works in Sitecore 8.
