LightSwitch Control ViewIDs

When you create a LightSwitch screen template extension, use ViewIDs to define the default controls. Every ViewID must have the module:control form, in which control is the name of the control, and module is the name of the module in which the control is defined.

Note Note

You can use the module:control notation for any installed control extensions.

The following list shows the ViewIDs for the controls that are included in LightSwitch. For information on using ViewIDs in a screen template, see Creating a LightSwitch Screen Template
