View structure

Every component/template added to the Easyweb studio can either be rendered inline, in a view you are already coding in, such as Home.cshtml, or rendered as a partial view that can be reused.


The will search for views to use based on the module and view belonging to the page being called. This applies to both the main view, as well as templates used in the view, which can however search additional locations per type.

The following search paths will always be searched:


{0} = Key variant for view or template type
{1} = Controller (only used when implementing own controller)
Views (index.cshtml/[CustomKey].cshtml)
Main view (view called with @RenderBody() from _Layout) for a call searches the above locations for a view with the CustomKey for the view, the regular key for the view, or Index.cshtml

If you create a separate view under pages for contact with the key "Contact", Contact.cshtml will be searched.

For regular keys, folders will search for the name Folder.cshtml, a module homepage for Module.

If nothing is found, Index.cshtml is always searched for.

Templates (e.g. sections/groups)

For templates, the search paths will be searched, with the addition that the folder with the same type as the templates will be searched.

For example, if you have a ReferenceType.Image, the ReferenceType folder will be searched through each search path.

Regarding the name of views, several different combinations of the key will be searched. The following names will be searched in the following order:


Example for ReferenceType.Image with its own key (CustomKey) "hero-image":
[Type] = "ReferenceType"
[Key] = "Image"
[CustomKey] = "hero-image"
