    v6 CreateContent method return values

    Hi,

    Does anyone know if this method can return the node id of the created content?

    I've checked the documentation here: http://our.umbraco.org/documentation/Reference/Management-v6/Services/ContentService

    Thanks

    Damien

    I believe these methods return an instance of the created content, so from the return object you should be able to just check it's Id property.

    Hi Andy,

    Thanks it did indeed.

        var contentService = ApplicationContext.Current.Services.ContentService;
    
        var contentNode = contentService.CreateContent(name,parentId, docTypeAlias, 0);
    
        contentNode.SetValue("productCode", productCode);
        contentNode.SetValue("currencyCode", currencyCode);
    
        //Get id of created content
        int nodeId = contentNode.Id;
    
        contentService.SaveAndPublish(contentNode);

    Ok, anyone else who struggles with this there is a non documented method:

    contentService.CreateContentWithIdentity

    This works a treat.
