Creating Custom Group for Web Parts in SharePoint [ UI ]

There has always been many ways to do things in SharePoint.

1. Using UI [ SharePoint UI ].
2. Using OM [ SharePoint API’s , Object Model]
3. Using CMAL

I am going to use first two for this post. Well scenario came to me was to create a group for custom web parts which were already created.

  • The easiest way was to go to Site Actions from home site of Site Collection then to Site Settings.

Site Actions

  • Then to Web parts under the Galleries section

Site Actions

It would open a web part gallery of that site collection including OOB [out of the box] web parts and those custom web parts which have been populated to web part gallery.

Highlighted web parts are mine custom created web parts which are have been populated to web part gallery.

  • Web part Alpha
  • Web part Beta
  • Web part Gama

Now while adding them on site i would see them in Miscellaneous section / group.

One way is to create new group from UI , and then they would be shown into that group. For that we just need to click on edit button of the desired web part and give an appropriate group name.

In Group field of web part gallery , select specify your own Group value , in my case i mentioned My Custom Group. After doing so you would be able to categorize your web part(s).
