Customizing the Alfresco Share user interface may require actions/indicators based on something about the node to be actioned (property, state, type, etc). For example, you may only want to enable an action for a node if of a specific type. This can be achieved by using Evaluators. Alfresco provides a number of out of the box evaluators. Additionally, more robust evaluators can be created by extending the classes used to support the out of the box evaluators. In this Lightning Talk from ECM Architect Mike Wallach, the predefined evaluators will be described and a walk through of how to utilize some of the out of the box evaluators will be given. Additionally, an example of extending the base evaluator to create an evaluator for a custom condition will be presented.
