Toggle

    Returns: Boolean

    Toggle is a standard checkbox which saves either 0 or 1, depending on the checkbox being checked or not.

    Data Type Definition Example

    True/False Data Type Definition

    The Toggle property has a setting which allows you to set the default value of the checkbox, either checked (true) or unchecked (false).

    It is also possible to define a label, that will be displayed next to the checkbox on the content.

    MVC View Example

    Without Modelsbuilder

    @{
        if (!Model.Value<bool>("myCheckBox"))
        {
            <p>The Checkbox is not checked!</p>
        }
    }
    

    With Modelsbuilder

    @{
        if (!Model.MyCheckbox)
        {
            <p>The Checkbox is not checked!</p>
        }
    }
    

    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 = new Guid("796a8d5c-b7bb-46d9-bc57-ab834d0d1248");
        
        // 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 'myCheckBox'
        content.SetValue("myCheckBox", true);
                
        // 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 'myCheckBox'
        content.SetValue(Home.GetModelPropertyType(_publishedSnapshotAccessor,x => x.MyCheckBox).Alias, true);
    
    }
