Drop-down list in web part properties pane

  Asked By: Garret    Date: Nov 17    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 14565

does anyone have code or an example of how to add a drop-down list
to the properties pane of a web part (in vb)? It seems that the
Microsoft documentation is down and the few articles I've found aren't
very helpful.

You'll want to look at using an enum property. I'm totally offline and have no
SharePoint access right now. If that doesn't get you going, post again.

I know to use the enum property, but am
basically clueless as how to acutally implement it. Do I create a new
class? Any tips or guidance would be most helpful.

Here is the code  I have so far. It gives me the "Windows SharePoint
Services cannot deserialize the web  Part" error. What else do I need
to add  to my project file for this to create a dropdown list  in the
properties pane?

Private colorPicked As MyColors

Public Enum MyColors
Red = 0
Blue = 1
Green = 2
End Enum

<Browsable(True), Category("Select Color"), DefaultValue(""), _
WebPartStorage(Storage.Shared), FriendlyName("Color"), _
Description("")> _
Property BorderStyle() As MyColors
Return colorPicked
End Get
Set(ByVal Value As MyColors)
colorPicked = Value
End Set
End Property
