Catalook Online Manual - Release Notes & History


New Features:

  • Telerik RAD Menu control added to to module CAT_MenuNF (To select the Telerik RAD menu control for the menu module (CAT_MenuNF), select 'View Options' from the module menu and set: [Category System] = [Advanced] and [Control Type] = [Telerik RAD Menu]. This menu control can only be used with advanced categories and ASCX skins (blue, blue-neutral, theme-grey etc.; file menu.ascx must be included) )
  • Login into your Portal with host account
  • If you use a different than the default ‘blue’ CATALooK skin, you must reload this skin from folder \CATALooK_SkinPackages via module CAT_StoreSettings (CATALooK.netStore -> Store Settings) -> Skins to get this functionality.
    If you use a custom skin you can use the menu.ascx skin file from one of the included CATALooK skins for your skin (copy this file into folder: \Desktopmodules\CATALooKStore\Skins\Your currently selected CATALooK skin or select ‘Edit Skin’ from the module action menu of module CAT_ItemPaneNF and add the red marked section below to the menu.ascx skin file of your CATALooK.netStore skin:
    <asp:Panel runat="server" ID="pnldropdownlistcontrol" Visible="False">
    <tr valign="top">
    <td class="CATRow" valign="top" width="100%">
    <cat:DROPDOWNLISTCONTROL id="catdropdownlistcontrol" Runat="server" CssClass="CATNormalDropDownList">
    <tr id="rowRadMenuControl" runat="server" valign="top" visible="False">
    <td class="CATMenuBG" valign="top" width="100%">
    <cat:RADMENUCONTROL id="catRadMenuControl" Runat="server" SkinsPath="*SkinPath*/RadControls/Menu/"
    Skin="CATCssBlue" style="float: left;" />
    <asp:Panel runat="server" ID="pnlDemo" Visible="False">
    <td class="CATRowHighLight" valign="bottom" width="100%">
    <!-- DO NOT DELETE -->
    <asp:Label ID="lblDemo" runat="server" Visible="False"></asp:Label><br>
    <asp:HyperLink ID="hypCATALooK" runat="server" Visible="False" Target="_blank"></asp:HyperLink></td>
  • The Telerik RadMenu control can not change the width of the menu module automatically to match it to the length of the category names.
    Therfore you must add a width parameter to the menu module skin:
    Select ‘Edit Skin’ from the module menu of module CAT_MenuNF and change:
    <table class="CATContainerBorder" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="100%">
    <table class="CATContainerBorder" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="200">
    This will change the width to a fixed value of 200px.


    Or add a width parameter to the css file of the RadMenu in the currently selected CATALooK.netStore skin: e.g. if your currently selected CATALooK skin is the default ‘blue’ skin and the name of the RadMenu skin is ‘CATCssBlue’, open \DesktopModules\CATALooKStore\Skins\blue\RadControls\Menu\CATCssBlue\ styles.css in a text editor and add the red marked text below to change it to a fixed width of 200px:
    background: #a7cfe8;
    font-family: Arial, Verdana, Tahoma;
    width: 200px;

  • AJAX option added to module CAT_StoreSettings ([CATALooK.netStore] -> [Store Settings] -> [Enable AJAX?])



  • Update for Language Switcher Skin object to reflect URL controlled language selection of DNN 4.6.X:
    1. Login into your Portal with host account
    2. Open [Host] -> [Module Definitions] -> Select: [Install New Module] -> DNN_SkinPackages\CATALooKDNN4SkinObjLangSwitcher.ZIP (Language switcher skin object)
