    How to return strongly typed object from Nested Content?

    Using the Nested Content.

    I wanted to return a list of my nested document types objects, but dont know how.

    So, at firts, I tried to just use my Nested property, but it return a IEnumerable<IPublishedContent> instead list of my strongly typed nested objects. It does't let me use direct syntax like item.MyProperty.

    @inherits Umbraco.Web.Mvc.UmbracoTemplatePage<HomePage>
     @{
            // does'not works
           var items = Model.Content.MyNestedItems;
           foreach (var item in items)
           {                          
              @item.MyProperty // Not found coz it a IPublishedContent
            }                      
       }
    

    How to do it propely?

    Hi Dmitriy,

    Can you try the following:

          @item.GetPropertyValue("MyPropertyName")
    

    OR you could try:

              @item.AsDynamic().MyPropertyName
    

    Let me know how it goes.

    Regards

    Craig

    Thanks, Craig. It helped, but it still doesn't let use a direct syntax.

    Do an other options exist?

    May be a library or other approach?

    Thank you, Paul. It is exactly what i wanted!

    Now, I have an idea to create a generic class to use it as a model instead UmbracoTemplatePage (and inherit that class).

    I usually do like

    Model.Content.NestedItems.Select(x => new Article(x))
    

    I think you could also do

    foreach (Article article in Model.Content.NestedArticles)
    

    But as Paul wrote, a switch for determining the model if there is more than one type in the nest, would be necessary.

    var items = Model.Content.ContentModules;
    
    
    foreach (var ncItem in items)
    {
        switch (ncItem.DocumentTypeAlias)
        {
            case "CM_basicTextModule":
                var basicTextModule = new Cm_basicTextModule(ncItem);
                @Html.Partial("CM_basicTextModule", basicTextModule);
                break;
    
            case "CM_halfBoxes":
                var halfBoxes = new Cm_halfBoxes(ncItem);
                @Html.Partial("CM_halfBoxes", halfBoxes);
                break;
    
            case "CM_fullWidthBordered":
                var fullWidthBordered = new Cm_fullWidthBordered(ncItem);
                @Html.Partial("CM_fullWidthBordered", fullWidthBordered);
                break;
        }
    }
    

    so I ended up doing something like this. Then I used a normal view to render out each one the way I needed. I'm sure I can tidy it up as I go.

    Looks good to me

    You could probably refactor it a bit more, as the var declaration is a bit superfluous

     @Html.Partial("CM_basicTextModule", new Cm_basicTextModule(ncItem));
