Sitecore Custom Google Map Field

So I’ve playing around with Sitecore CMS lately. For you that don’t know about Sitecore, you could refer to this Link.

In this post, I would like to share how to create a custom field in Sitecore. The idea for this post is, we will create a custom Sitecore’s field, that could set a latitude and longitude value from Google Map. It’ll consist of a textbox control that will hold the longitude and latitude and 2 buttons; set location and clear location. When we click set locationbutton, it’ll open up a popup windows, and you can point to a specific location, whether the clear button will clear our field value.

I found a very great article from Alex Shyba and Adam Conn that will tell you more specific about how we create a custom field in Sitecore, or you always could find a Sitecore’s documentation in Sitecore Developer Network.

So basically, our custom field will look like this

Here’s the step about how we do this Smile.

But we will found a problem if we want to include .Net Framework 3.5 SP1 as our prerequisites in the same directory as the application.

Well, it’s because by default, .Net Framework 3.5 SP1 will be download from Microsoft Download Center website due to size restrictions.

The question is, how we include .Net Framework 3.5 SP1 in our installation package? well, Microsoft has provided way to doing this. You can find the full instruction in Visual Studio 2008 Service Pack 1 Readme.
