Styling can be added to HotcakesCartItemCount.ascx utilizing CssClass or inline styling.

Manual Installation

We hope to add a build script to the project soon to auto-generate a Private Assembly package for easy installation within DNN. Until then, only one folder needs to be manually created and two files copied over to the DNN instance file/folder structure. 

Create folder
  1. Within DNN instance, create a folder named HotcakesCartItemCount within ~/DesktopModules.
Copy two files over
  1. Copy HotcakesCartItemCount.ascx from this project to the new folder just created above within DNN. 
  2. Copy HotcakesCartItemCount.dll from this project (/bin folder) to ~/bin within DNN. 

Registering within DNN theme/skin

  • Be sure to register the theme/skin object at the top of desired ASCX theme files:
<%@ Register TagPrefix="hcc" TagName="CartItemCount" Src="~/DesktopModules/HotcakesCartItemCount/HotcakesCartItemCount.ascx" %>


  • Utilize the following code within the desired ASCX theme/skin files:
<hcc:CartItemCount id="hccCartItemCount" runat="server" />
