Folders

Configuring folders to organise trees in Umbraco UI Builder, the backoffice UI builder for Umbraco.
A folder can appear in either a tree or as a sub folder to other folders. Folders can contain either other (sub)folders or collections.
Tree with Settings folder

Defining a folder

You can define a folder by calling one of the AddFolder methods on a given Tree or parent Folder config builder instance.

AddFolder(string name, Lambda folderConfig = null) : FolderConfigBuilder

Adds a folder to the current tree with the given name and a default folder icon.
// Example
treeConfig.AddFolder("Settings", folderConfig => {
...
});

AddFolder(string name, string icon, Lambda folderConfig = null) : FolderConfigBuilder

Adds a folder to the current tree with the given name + icon.
// Example
treeConfig.AddFolder("Settings", "icon-settings", folderConfig => {
...
});

Changing a folder alias

SetAlias(string alias) : FolderConfigBuilder

Sets the alias of the folder.
Optional: When creating a new folder, an alias is automatically generated from the supplied name for you. However, if you need a specific alias you can use the SetAlias method to override this.
// Example
folderConfig.SetAlias("settings");

Changing a folder icon color

SetIconColor(string color) : FolderConfigBuilder

Sets the folder icon color to the given color. The options that are possible are black, green, yellow, orange, blue or red.
// Example
folderConfig.SetIconColor("blue");

Adding a sub folder to a folder

AddFolder (string name, Lambda folderConfig = null) : FolderConfigBuilder

Adds a sub folder to the current folder with the given name and a default folder icon.
// Example
folderConfig.AddFolder("Categories", subFolderConfig => {
...
});

AddFolder (string name, string icon, Lambda folderConfig = null) : FolderConfigBuilder

Adds a sub folder to the current folder with the given name + icon.
// Example
folderConfig.AddFolder("Categories", "icon-tags", subFolderConfig => {
...
});

Adding a collection to a folder

AddCollection<TEntityType>(Lambda idFieldExpression, string nameSingular, string namePlural, string description, Lambda collectionConfig = null) : CollectionConfigBuilder<TEntityType>

Adds a collection to the current folder with the given names, descriptions, and default icons. An ID property accessor expression is required so that Umbraco UI Builder knows which property is the ID property. For more information check the Collections documentation.
// Example
folderConfig.AddCollection<Person>(p => p.Id, "Person", "People", "A collection of people", collectionConfig => {
...
});

AddCollection<TEntityType>(Lambda idFieldExpression, string nameSingular, string namePlural, string description, string iconSingular, string iconPlural, Lambda collectionConfig = null) : CollectionConfigBuilder<TEntityType>

Adds a collection to the current folder with the given names, description and icons. An ID property accessor expression is required so that Umbraco UI Builder knows which property is the ID property. For more information check the Collections documentation.
// Example
folderConfig.AddCollection<Person>(p => p.Id, "Person", "People", "A collection of people", "icon-umb-users", "icon-umb-users", collectionConfig => {
...
});
