Does anyone know how to implement Alternates for a projector view?. We have a need for providing the ability to add edit buttons to a projector result set, so that users can edit any content item displayed.

You can do this without using an alternate view by using a layout with custom properties and the Rewrite Output feature. You can output an edit link for the content item using the {Content.EditUrl} token.

You could provide a different Display Type in the Layout's options. Then the alternate will be YOURCONTENTTYPE.YOURDISPLAYTYPE.cshtml

yes but you have to add the projector part to your custom contenttype. then you are able to create a alternate based on it's contenttype. Unfortunatelly the projector part has not the attachable extension attached so you have to do this through migrations.
