    Get property name


    Does anyone know how to get the Name (not alias) of a property in Razor?

    Hi Matt,

    If you are using a dynamic node you can just @MyDynamicNode.MyPropertyAlias and access it like that, or if you are using a regular Node, then you would do @MyNode.GetProperty("MyPropertyAlias")

    It's something like that! Hope I've pointed you in the right direction at least! :)

    It's just Name, e.g.


    If you want to see all of them, you could try:


    @foreach (var child in DynamicModel.Children)
        <textarea rows="40" cols="40"> 
    @foreach(PropertyDescriptor descriptor in TypeDescriptor.GetProperties(child.ContentType)) 
    string name=descriptor.Name; 
    object value=descriptor.GetValue(child.ContentType); 
    @Html.Raw(name + "=" + value +"\n") } 

    This forum really doesn't like you pasting code in

    This doesn´t work when you need Name of Property

     foreach (var item in list)
                var proplist = item.Properties;
                foreach (var prop in proplist)
                    <li>@prop.PropertyTypeAlias (@prop.Name)</li>

    prop.Name doesn´t work in this case, but name is written somewhere in database. Can i uncover this field to be able to display it?
