    UserControl datatype: how to get it's tab?

    Hi again.

    I made a user control to use as a datatype. It's working fine. Is there a way to get it's tab name? (the tab the datatype is in in the current document edition)

    Thanks.

    Probably not, you may be able to find something in the ContentType (umbraco.cms.businesslogic.ContentType) class, but I doubt it.

    If you do find something, I'd love to know!

    Hi, I could not find a function in the core APIs.
    But the following works for me in version 6.2.1:

    namespace MyDomain.DataTypes
    {
    public class MyCustomDataEditor : Control, IDataEditor { private class PropAndTabNames { public string TabName { get; set; } public string PropName { get; set; } } private PropAndTabNames GetPropAndTabNames() { PropAndTabNames rVal = null; int nodeId = 0; if (int.TryParse(UmbracoContext.Current.HttpContext.Request.QueryString["id"], out nodeId) && nodeId > 0) { var contentService = ApplicationContext.Current.Services.ContentService; var content = contentService.GetById(nodeId); var tabs = content.ContentType.PropertyGroups; foreach (var tab in tabs) { var props = tab.PropertyTypes; foreach (var prop in props) { if (this.ID == "prop_" + prop.Alias) { rVal = new PropAndTabNames(); rVal.TabName = tab.Name; rVal.PropName = prop.Name; break; } } } } return rVal; }
    ...
    protected override void OnLoad(EventArgs e) { base.OnLoad(e);
    ...
    var propTabNames = GetPropAndTabNames();
    ...
    }
    }
    }

    Of course the rest of the DataEditor code is omitted;-)

    Yours

    @Fernando: Sorry I have ignored that you are using version 4.5.2. The solution might by similar with the old API. You'll find a description on stackoverflow.com:
