    Data Type Definition Example

    In the example above the possible values for the input field would be [8, 8.5, 9, 9.5, 10]

    All other values will be removed in the content editor when saving or publishing.

    If the value of Step Size is not set then all decimal values between 8 and 10 is possible to input in the content editor.

    With Modelsbuilder

    @Model.MyDecimal
    

    Without Modelsbuilder

    @Model.Value("MyDecimal")
    

    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 = 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 'myDecimal'. 
    	content.SetValue("myDecimal", 3);
    
    	// 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:

    @{
        // Set the value of the property with alias 'myDecimal'
        content.SetValue(Home.GetModelPropertyType(x => x.MyDecimal).Alias, 3);
    }
