Custom desktop modules to be Admin modules?

Well, I have to put some custom desktop modules to the Admin level since they are all used by some other modules.

For example:
Module A,B,C are common modules, while Module X1, X2, X3,X4,X5..... are not common, and X1,X2,X3,X4,X5... use Module A,B,C.
And I noticed that the way now DNN does with the admin tabs is similiar with normal tabs but they have no AdministratorRoles. And I also find that there is one file called admin.template in the portal folder. I can find all the definitions of the admin tabs. I simply do the same as what I find, the my own tab is there, the when I click, nothing appear.
I know I miss something, but any one can help?

No, I did set the admin field to be true, but there is no "direct connection" with the tab and the "target modules", since the admin tabs cannot be visually configured!

OK, I just heard that dnn 3.0 will include this feature, that's fantastic!

Here is what needs to be done, because I just dug through it myself and did it.

I did this using SQL Enterprise Manager. Try it any other way and your on your own.
1. Add a tab to the tabs table. The tab order field is used for display order. Set authorized roles to 0;-1; for admin and host. Set is visible = 1 and set the parent id to the id of the admin tab. In my instance it's 6. Everything else is self explanitory
2. Add a new record to the modules table. Tab Id should be the new tab that you just created. ModuleDefId is the Module Definition Id of the module that is going to be used for admin. Set authorized edit roles to 0; because both host and admin fit this role. Everything else is self explanitory.

That would make it much easier to evaluate the program and give recommendations to my boss. The reason there aren't more 2.0 modules yet is becasue it h...

Optimized VS.Net Solution for custom modules + free modules
I like to leave the DNN core code untouched when I do my module development. Also, I like to work with a clean VS.Net solution which has my custom modules and none of the core projects.

It's called "My Modules" and can be used to develop/debug DNN modules without requiring any core project references. I have blogged about my solution in detail and also posted it for download. In the download package, I have also inclu...

Custom module / error handeling in module settings

I tried to use the DotNetNuke.UI.Skins.Skin.AddModuleMessage in the UpdateSettings() method, but the messages does not show up, in fact DNN sends me back to the view page. I have also tried to use the AddPageMessage, but with the same result. In the view part of the module the AddModuleMessage is working fine and showing messages on the top of the pane. Any help is greatly appreciated. ...

What Module is using for DNN3 modules?
The module used for the 3rd party DotNetNuke3 Modules is nice (needs a lot of improvement still, but worlds beyond what is "stock" ), and I would certainly like the opportunity to play with it a bit and consider it for my sites, however I can't figure out what they are using! Shawn: When you use a third party module on the dotnetnuke site, you should probably add a tag line IDing it to the bottom of it so that the rest of us can check it out! Thanks. That is Patrick Santry's Resource Directory Manager. I'm not sure what Patrick's plan are with this module in the future or ...
