DNN Provider 4.0 - Customize Toolbar by Role?

    DNN Provider 4.0 - Customize Toolbar by Role?

    I am evaluating the DotNetNuke Provider 4.0. What I really want to be able to do is to have a different set of toolbar buttons appear for different DNN user groups. For example, administrators would get the full set of buttons, group X would loose the table buttons, group Y would only have the B U I buttons.
     
    I can see that it is possible to configure different toolbar layouts, but how can this be tied to the DNN user group? If this would involve modifying the code of the provider, please give me clear instructions as I am a junior programmer!
     
    Thanks

    Re: DNN Provider 4.0 - Customize Toolbar by Role?

     
    Yes, you can have different set of tool buttons appear fro different DNN role.  You have to modify the code of the provider.
     
    Please follow the steps:
     
    1. Create s function IsCurrentUserInRole in the CEHtmlEditorProvider.vb
     
    IsCurrentUserInRole Public Shared Function IsCurrentUserInRole(ByRef roleName As String) As Boolean
                If (roleName = "" Or System.Web.HttpContext.Current.User.Identity.Name = "") Then
                    Return False
                End If
                Dim _portalSettings As PortalSettings = CType(System.Web.HttpContext.Current.Items("PortalSettings"), PortalSettings)
                Dim objUsers As UserController = New UserController
                Dim objUser As UserInfo = objUsers.GetUser(_portalSettings.PortalId, Int32.Parse(Current.User.Identity.Name))
                Dim _roleController As RoleController = New RoleController
                Dim str As String() = _roleController.GetRolesByUser(objUser.UserID, _portalSettings.PortalId)
                Dim isInRole As Boolean = False
                Dim strInfo As String
                For Each strInfo In str
                    If (rInfo.RoleName() = roleName) Then
                        isInRole = True
                    End If
                Next
                Return isInRole
            End Function
     
    2. In the Public Sub New() .. End Sub, add the following code:
     
    Title
    cntlCE.SecurityPolicyFile = "Guest.config"

    If IsCurrentUserInRole("Administrators") = True Then
        cntlCE.SecurityPolicyFile = "Admin.config"
    ElseIf IsCurrentUserInRole("Site Editor") = True Then
        cntlCE.SecurityPolicyFile = "default.config"
    ElseIf IsCurrentUserInRole("Registered Users") = True Then
        cntlCE.SecurityPolicyFile = "Default.config"
    End If

    Hope it helps. Keep me posted.

    Re: DNN Provider 4.0 - Customize Toolbar by Role?

    Thanks for replying so quckly !

     
    I got the idea here and I think we want to be specifying an AutoConfigure option rather than a Security config file, in order to configure the toolbars, right?
     
    I modified your code a little, however I have a problem - I am always getting the same configuration, no matter which of my three groups I put my test user in. How come the code isn't detecting the group?
     
    Here's my code:
     
            Public Sub New()

                .........

                If IsCurrentUserInRole("Full HTML Editor") = True Then
                    cntlCE.AutoConfigure = AutoConfigure.Full
                ElseIf IsCurrentUserInRole("Default HTML Editor") = True Then
                    cntlCE.AutoConfigure = AutoConfigure.Simple
                ElseIf IsCurrentUserInRole("Minimal HTML Editor") = True Then
                    cntlCE.AutoConfigure = AutoConfigure.Minimal
                Else
                    cntlCE.AutoConfigure = AutoConfigure.Simple
                End If
                Me.HtmlEditorControl = cntlCE
            End Sub

            'Detect the DNN Role the current user is in
            Public Shared Function IsCurrentUserInRole(ByRef roleName As String) As Boolean
                If (roleName = "" Or System.Web.HttpContext.Current.User.Identity.Name = "") Then
                    Return False
                End If
                Dim _portalSettings As PortalSettings = CType(System.Web.HttpContext.Current.Items("PortalSettings"), PortalSettings)
                Dim objUsers As UserController = New UserController
                Dim objUser As UserInfo = objUsers.GetUser(_portalSettings.PortalId, Int32.Parse(HttpContext.Current.User.Identity.Name))
                Dim _roleController As RoleController = New RoleController
                Dim str As String() = _roleController.GetRolesByUser(objUser.UserID, _portalSettings.PortalId)
                Dim isInRole As Boolean = False
                Dim strInfo As String
                For Each strInfo In str
                    If (strInfo = roleName) Then
                        isInRole = True
                    End If
                Next
                Return isInRole
            End Function

    Re: DNN Provider 4.0 - Customize Toolbar by Role?

    I checked the DNN code again. I think the following code will resolve the problem.
     

     

    Title

    Public Shared Function IsCurrentUserInRole(ByRef roleName As String) As Boolean

        If (roleName = "" Or System.Web.HttpContext.Current.User.Identity.Name = "") Then

            Return False

        End If

        Dim _portalSettings As PortalSettings = CType(System.Web.HttpContext.Current.Items("PortalSettings"), PortalSettings)

        Dim objUsers As UserController = New UserController

        Dim objUser As UserInfo = objUsers.GetUser(_portalSettings.PortalId, Int32.Parse(HttpContext.Current.User.Identity.Name))

        Dim _roleController As RoleController = New RoleController

        Dim _roleinfo As RoleInfo = New RoleInfo

        Dim str As String() = _roleController.GetRolesByUser(objUser.UserID, _portalSettings.PortalId)

        Dim isInRole As Boolean = False

        Dim strInfo As String

        For Each strInfo In str

            _roleinfo = _roleController.GetRole(Int32.Parse(strInfo))

            If (_roleinfo.RoleName = roleName) Then

                isInRole = True

               Exit For

            End If

        Next

        Return isInRole

    End Function

    Perfect! This is now working exactly as needed. Thanks again.

    Re: DNN Provider 4.0 - Customize Toolbar by Role?

    I have the same requirement, but I would not even consider myself a Jr. Programer.

    Is there a way a package could be made available for DNN that would have pre-determined configurable roles?

    As it is now it appears that I can have multiple configs for any role I wish, but I need to do a re-compile.
    Each portal already has the Administrators and Registered Users roles. Make the Registered Users role the lowest on the scale. If you added another generic role, say Site Staff CS, then a easily configurable deployment package could be created. And it would not require a recompile. Even non-programers like me could make it work because all we would need to do is add the appropriate roles and edit the config file.
     
    This would really make the editor appealing to many DNN users who are looking for an alternative to FTB.
     
    Thanks.

    jhoelz,
     
    Thanks for the good point.
     
    We will adjust the provider and provide this solution.
     
    The new provider should be available tomorrow.

    Re: DNN Provider 4.0 - Customize Toolbar by Role?

    Adam,
     
    As a new user I hope you don't think I being too pushy, but If I have been thinking about this and would like to make a suggestion, or two
     
    If you make the Administrator Role and the Registered User role as defaults then if the additional Roles can not be matched to exisiting, already created roles make the roles for use with CS named as CS Advanced, CS Normal, or something that would denote them as roles specifically for CS with a consistant prefix so they will be grouped in the Role Manager together.
     
    Make sense?

    Re: DNN Provider 4.0 - Customize Toolbar by Role?

    Man... who is this Adam guy??  lol.
     
    Just because of him, my decision as to which editor to use in DNN to replace that crappy FTB was made entirely too easy.
     
    Not to mention, it has templates... lol.  Templates are king.

    Re: DNN Provider 4.0 - Customize Toolbar by Role?

    Guys,
     
    The new provider for DNN 3.x is done.

    Please download the control from:
     
     
    With this new provider, we fully integrated the Cute Editor with DNN 3.0 security roles.

    Typical Scenarios:

    Case I:

    You have a commuinity site.  You allow all the users post and input the new content in a particular module.

    But you want to have set some toolbar limitations based on the user roles.

     1.  The admins should have access to all the editor toolbars.
     2.  The registed users should have access to some simple editor toolbars.
     3.  The visitors should read only.

    You can achieved this using the editor configurations below:

     <add name="CEHtmlEditorProvider"
            type="DotNetNuke.HtmlEditor.CEHtmlEditorProvider, DotNetNuke.CEHtmlEditorProvider"
            providerPath="~\Providers\HtmlEditorProviders\CEHtmlEditorProvider\CuteSoft_Client\CuteEditor\" 
            Admin_AutoConfigure = "Full"
            Registered_AutoConfigure = "Simple"
            Guest_ReadOnly = "true"
     />        
    </providers>


    Case 2: 

    You have a commuinity site.  You allow all the users post and input the new content in a particular module.

    However in this case you want to control user access to the server resources.

     1.  The admins/registed users/visitors should have different image/document/flash/media folder. 
     2.  The admins can upload files/delete files/create folders/delete folders.
     3.  The registed users can upload files but can't delete files/create folders/delete folders. 
     4.  The visitors users can use the existing images/flashes/medias/documents, but can't upload files/delete files/create folders/delete folders.
     5.  The registed users can't upload more than 200k files. The max image dimension restriction is 640X 480.
     5.  The registed users can only upload *.gif, *.jpg,*.doc.*.zip files.

    .........

    You can achieved this using the following steps:

    1. Modify your editor configurations and Map Each role to a specific security policy file:

     <add name="CEHtmlEditorProvider"
            type="DotNetNuke.HtmlEditor.CEHtmlEditorProvider, DotNetNuke.CEHtmlEditorProvider"
            providerPath="~\Providers\HtmlEditorProviders\CEHtmlEditorProvider\CuteSoft_Client\CuteEditor\" 
            Admin_SecurityPolicyFile = "admin.config"
            Registered_SecurityPolicyFile= "member.config"
            Guest_SecurityPolicyFile= "guest.config"
     />        
    </providers>

    2. Create your own security policy files or edit the existing security policy file.

    I'll play with it a bit.
     
    One other note... Remember to create the folders for your uploads per role.

    Re: DNN Provider 4.0 - Customize Toolbar by Role?

    Sorry to be such a pain, but I have another.
     
    The security roles for guest are set to restrict access to "guest" folder, yet they can see all folders back to root.
     
    Also, I would guess that you should be able to combine both configs so that you can control access to resources AND tool bars, yet if I add Guest_AutoConfigure="simple.config" it seems to have no impact.
     
    I'm sure it's me missing something simple, but any help would be appreciated.
     
    Just to confirm I have this right...
     
    <htmlEditor defaultProvider="CEHtmlEditorProvider" >
                <providers>
       <clear/>
                   <add name="CEHtmlEditorProvider"
             type="DotNetNuke.HtmlEditor.CEHtmlEditorProvider, DotNetNuke.CEHtmlEditorProvider"
             providerPath="~\Providers\HtmlEditorProviders\CEHtmlEditorProvider\CuteSoft_Client\CuteEditor\" 
             Admin_SecurityPolicyFile = "admin.config"
             Registered_Users_SecurityPolicyFile= "member.config"
             Guest_SecurityPolicyFile= "guest.config"
             Guest_AutoConfigure="simple" />        
     </providers>
             </htmlEditor>

    Re: DNN Provider 4.0 - Customize Toolbar by Role?

    Something odd is going on.
     
    If I give "Unauthenticated" users edit permission on a text html module, they can edit it with the editor, but if they want to insert an image they can see all the way back to root.
     
    If logged in as administrator you can only see the "uploads" folder.
