    Without Modelsbuilder

    @{
        if (Model.Value<string[]>("keyFeatureList").Length > 0)
        {
            <ul>
                @foreach (var item in Model.Value<string[]>("keyFeatureList"))
                {
                    <li>@item</li>
                }
            </ul>
        }
    }
    

    With Modelsbuilder

    @{
        if (Model.KeyFeatureList.Any())
        {
            <ul>
                @foreach (var item in Model.KeyFeatureList)
                {
                    <li>@item</li>
                }
            </ul>
        }
    }
    

    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("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 'keyFeatureList'
        content.SetValue("keyFeatureList", "Awesome" + Environment.NewLine + "Super");
    
        // Save the change
        contentService.Save(content);
    }
    

    To add multiple values to the repeatable text strings property editor you have to put each value on a new line. This can be achieved using either \r\n\ or Environment.NewLine.

    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 'keyFeatureList'
        content.SetValue(Home.GetModelPropertyType(x => x.KeyFeatureList).Alias, "Awesome" + Environment.NewLine + "Super");
    }
