WSS 3.0: How to add settings sub menu for your custom web part – Verbs Explained…


Its pretty simple and straight forward. ;). The web part menu has been handled by the WebPartVerbCollection. Adding an item to the collection will solve our problem.


In your custom web part code, add the following piece of code.


        public override WebPartVerbCollection Verbs


        {


            get


            {


                //New Verb


                WebPartVerb verb = new WebPartVerb("ClientCode", "javascript:alert('hello world');");


                //Text for Verb


                verb.Text = "Helloworld";


                //Add the verb into the array


                WebPartVerb[] newVerbs = new WebPartVerb[] { verb };


                //Add the array of verbs to the collection


                WebPartVerbCollection verbs = new WebPartVerbCollection(base.Verbs, newVerbs);


                //return the collection


                return verbs;


            }


        }


 


Deploy the web part and open the web site where you have the web part, click the drop down button, you will see the “helloworld” menu, click that you will see the alert window.


OK, I agree, adding the client side code is straight forward what about Server Side code. You won't believe me, its also pretty simple. The sample code is below


        public override WebPartVerbCollection Verbs


        {


            get


            {


                //New Verb with the function event handler


                WebPartVerb ServerVerb = new WebPartVerb("MysSrverCode", new WebPartEventHandler(MyFunction));


                //Text for Verb


                ServerVerb.Text = "ChangeTitle";


                //Add the verb into the array


                WebPartVerb[] newVerbs = new WebPartVerb[] { ServerVerb };


                //Add the array of verbs to the collection


                WebPartVerbCollection verbs = new WebPartVerbCollection(base.Verbs, newVerbs);


                //return the collection


                return verbs;


            }


        }


 


        protected void MyFunction(object sender, WebPartEventArgs args)


        {


            this.Title = "New Title";


        }
