    Missing this feature asweel.

    I acually though I had figured it out a soltuion for this problem for IList<ContentReference>, but it seams as if the CMS UI team had missed a crutial part: Hooking info _onSearchResultSelected event.

    I tried to use the code belowe. This made the search field apear inside the select dialog, but clicking on the searchhits did not set the value. Bug? Not implemented?

    public virtual IList Authors { get; set; }

    public class EmployeePageSelectorAttribute : Attribute, IMetadataAware

    public void OnMetadataCreated(ModelMetadata metadata)

    var employeeRoot = new ContentReference(54);
    extendedMetadata.EditorConfiguration["roots"] = new ContentReference[1] { employeeRoot };
    extendedMetadata.EditorConfiguration["AllowedTypes"] = new Type[1] { typeof(EmployeePage) };
    extendedMetadata.EditorConfiguration["searchArea"] = "cms/pages";
    extendedMetadata.EditorConfiguration["showSearchBox"] = true; // available in CMS.UI 11.37.1


    The CMS UI team should look into modifying ContentReferenceEditorList.js to make use of this override feature
