I'm extending the SXA Accordion component to add a header to the accordion. Ok, derive a template from Accordion template, add the Page Component to the presentation details for the standard values, create a new controller, model, repository and view, all based on the Accordion component.

        @if (Model.Rendering.DataSourceItem != null)
        {
            if (Model.Title == null)
            {
                using (Html.Sxa().BeginEditFrame(Html.Sitecore().CurrentRendering.DataSource, "Header Empty", Model.IsControlEditable))
                {
                    <div class="accordion-header">
                    [Heading is empty]
                    </div>
                }
            }
            else
            {
                using (Html.Sxa().BeginEditFrame(Model.Title.ID, "Header", Model.IsControlEditable))
                {
                    var titleKey = string.Format("{0}-{1}", titleBaseKey, Model.Id);
                    <div class="accordion-header">
                        @Html.Sitecore().Placeholder(titleKey)
                    </div>
                }
            }
        }

In the new template, I added a Title field (rich text). The Title field in the model is just the rendering DataSourceItem. How do I get the Title field of the new template to show up as a variant in the rendering parameters for the Page Content? Remember the new template has the Accordion as the base template.

  • I don't get the question.. why do you need "Page Content" if your title field is in the datasource template? – Gatogordo Sep 17 '20 at 16:12
  • I a using the Page Content to allow a the rich text editor to be used to edit content. Is there some other way I should be doing this? – Gary Williams Sep 17 '20 at 17:47
  • I can change this to use the rich text for the presentation details, but it still won't let me choose the field name to use for the variant. – Gary Williams Sep 17 '20 at 20:52

I found that adding the template to the experienceAccelerator/getVariants/allowedTemplates in a configuration file seemed to make this work.
