Hi all,
Im working on a project management portlet that allows an admin to create projects, add users, perform tasks and view projects in a tabular format.

a) I would like to know how to adopt the same look and feel of the user,organization,communities, or roles portlets. I want to be able to add and perform actions on projects.

b) How can i seamlessly integrate this into the control panel content category.

Thanks a lot in advance

Hi Raphael,

a) To give you portlets the same look and feel as the portlets you describe, you'll want to use the Liferay Search Container. You can learn more about it here: http://www.liferay.com/community/wiki/-/wiki/Main/SearchContainer

b) To get your portlet to show up in the Control Panel, you'll need to add two entries to your liferay-portlet.xml file.

<control-panel-entry-category>portal</control-panel-entry-category>
<control-panel-entry-weight>1.0</control-panel-entry-weight>

There are additional details here: http://www.liferay.com/community/wiki/-/wiki/Main/Control+Panel#section-Control+Panel-CustomizingTheControlPanel

If you're building a custom portlet that you want to match the Liferay look & feel, just use the AlloyUI component library.
