This Field Control is resposible for displaying and setting tags stored on the content, in the Content Explorer or on a page of your portal. For the Tags field, this control will be rendered automatically for every content.


  • In browse mode it only displays tags of the actual content as links for instant searching.


  • In edit beside the tags (links) a TextBox is displayed as well, for adding new tags to the content.


  • If the viewer user has administrator privileges, the control renders without any links, as a multi-line TextBox so tags can be removed from the content this way.


Supported Field types


The following properties can be set on Reference:

  • SearchPath: The path of the tag search application. This app will be used for searching when a tag link is clicked. Default value: "/Root"
  • SearchFilterName: The URL parameter name for searching. It depends on the search application. Default value: "TagFilter"
  • TagSplitChars: A String paramater which represents an array of splitting characters. The value of Tags field will be splitted based on these on load. Also, on each save all the separator characters will be replaced by a single space (" "). Default value: { ' ' }
  • NotAllowedChars: A String paramater which represents an array of not allowed characters. These will be removed from newly added tags. Default value: { '&', '\\', '/', '?' }
