Allow for multiple configurations through URI

description

REQUEST
Another request came in to allow the same page display different content based on the request e.g. http://mydomain/InfoKiosk/Default.aspx?Team=Infrastructure or Team=Development or Team=Team1.
This would allow for a more specific display of content as each each team has its own PageContent.xml which controls screen layout, content and content parameters.
 
SOLUTION
Introduce a ConfigCollection.xml which manages the various PageContent.xml files for each "Team". The PageContent.xml file could be placed in team specific sub folders or just named differently and be placed all together in the same location. The ConfigCollection.xml would also indicate if a "Team" file is active or not.

Added the ConfigCollection.xml which specifies the screen setup (see work item # ) for each chosen configuration plus the location and filename of the configuration file which specifies which controls to display.

A configuration can be selected using the "Team" querystring element e.g. http://{your domain}/InfoKiosk/Default.aspx?Team={configuration name}.
