    Example with Modelsbuilder

    @{
        var color = Model.Color?.ToString();
    
        if (!string.isNullOrEmpty(color))
        {
            <div style="background-color: @color"></div>
        }
    }
    

    Example without Modelsbuilder

    @{
        var color = Model.Value<string>("Color");
    
        if (!string.isNullOrEmpty(color))
        {
            <div style="background-color: @color"></div>
        }
    }
    

    Add values programmatically

    See the example below to see how a value can be added or changed programmatically. To update a value of a property editor you need the Content Service.

    @inject IContentService Services;
    @{
        // Get access to ContentService
        var contentService = Services;
    
        // Create a variable for the GUID of the page you want to update
        var guid = Guid.Parse("32e60db4-1283-4caa-9645-f2153f9888ef");
    
        // Get the page using the GUID you've defined
        var content = contentService.GetById(guid); // ID of your page
    
        // Set the value of the property with alias 'color'.
        content.SetValue("color", "#6fa8dc");
        
        // Save the change
        contentService.Save(content);
    }
    

    Although the use of a GUID is preferable, you can also use the numeric ID to get the page:

    @{
        // Get the page using it's id
        var content = contentService.GetById(1234); 
    }
    

    If Modelsbuilder is enabled you can get the alias of the desired property without using a magic string:

    @inject IPublishedSnapshotAccessor _publishedSnapshotAccessor;
    @{
        // Set the value of the property with alias 'color'
        content.SetValue(Home.GetModelPropertyType(_publishedSnapshotAccessor, x => x.Color).Alias, "#6fa8dc");
        
        // Set the value of the property with alias 'theme'
        content.SetValue(Home.GetModelPropertyType(_publishedSnapshotAccessor, x => x.Theme).Alias, "rgba(111, 168, 220, 0.7)");
    }
