    Without Modelsbuilder

    @if (Model.HasValue("colorTheme"))
        var value = Model.Value("colorTheme");

    With Modelsbuilder

    @if (Model.ColorTheme != null)
        var value = Model.ColorTheme;

    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.

        // Get access to ContentService
        var contentService = Services.ContentService;
        // 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 'colorTheme'
        content.SetValue("colorTheme", "water");
        // Save the change

    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:

        // Set the value of the property with alias 'colorTheme'
        content.SetValue(Home.GetModelPropertyType(x => x.ColorTheme).Alias, "water");
