SharePoint 2013 New Delegate Controls

Using SharePoint delegate control, a developer can customize the SharePoint site controls without editing or even touching the master page.
Most of us already knows existing delegate controls from previous versions of SharePoint.

  • AdditionalPageHead
  • GlobalNavigation
  • GlobalSiteLink0
  • GlobalSiteLink2
  • GlobalSiteLink3
  • PublishingConsole
  • PageHeader
  • TopNavigationDataSource
  • TreeViewAndDataSource
  • PageFooter
  • QuickLaunchDataSource
  • SmallSearchInputBox

You could find more details on those delegate controls on Daniel’s blog. Developers could also create new delegate control of their own and include it in their custom master page like I found here.

Now with SharePoint 2013, they introduce new Delegate Controls below.
