In this article we will see how to implement PromotedActionsDelegate Control.


Delegate Control is responsible for displaying Links "Share, Follow, SYNC, EDIT" in top right below SuiteLinksDelegate Control.

Step 1:

Create one Empty SharePoint Project and provide the Solution Name and choose the Solution Path and click on OK.

Step 2:

Deploy the Solution as Farm Solution. Provide the Url in next screen and validate the Connection.

Now open the ".ascx" of the User Control and paste the following code.


Step 5:

Add Elements.xml file to the Solution, provide the name and click on Add.

  2.     <Elementsxmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/">  
  4.         <!-- DelegateControl reference to the PromotedActions Delegate Control -->  
  5.         <ControlControlSrc="/_controltemplates/15/PromotedActionsDelegate_Example/MyCustomPromotedActionsDelegate.ascx" Id="PromotedActions" Sequence="1" />  
  7.         </Elements>  
  8.   </Elements>
