    @Model.MediaById @Model.Media, Library.MediyById not working

    Hi,

    in this tutorial, under Razor Macro I see 3 options to get the url of a picture. None of them work. In Visual Studio when I mouse over "Media" I get the error "Cannot resolve symbol for Media".

    I tried all the methods, I always get this error:

    Error loading Partial View script (file: ~/Views/MacroPartials/NewsList.cshtml).

    In my view at the top I have

    @inherits Umbraco.Web.Macros.PartialViewMacroPage

    I tried also:

    @inherits Umbraco.Web.Mvc.UmbracoTemplatePage

    It never works. Do I forget something, a using statement or so?

    PLEASE HELP

    The only way I can get an url of media is to use the old deprecated way. I'd like to use the new way.

    Old way (works - but as you can see, lot of code just for a little thing tat should work out of the box but I don't know how to make it work):

    var mediaItem = new umbraco.cms.businesslogic.media.Media(Convert.ToInt32(content.GetProperty(propertyName).Value));

    string mediaURL = mediaItem.getProperty("umbracoFile").Value.ToString();

    How come you aren't usng the MVC View Example? It uses the UmbracoHelper which I believe is the recommended way to work with content as well as media  in current versions of Umbraco.

    Dear Steven, if the example would work, I would not be here asking what I'm missing. Also to consider above, I tried the macro example because in my umbraco installation I'm using masterpages and some views have to be inserted as macros, hope you understand...

    I just tried the "view example", in a view i'm using as template for a document type. I have a foreach loop so I can't just use the example as provided in the documentation with "Model.Content" as inside a loop of article, the node would be "article" (and not Model.Content), so I tried like this:

    @inherits Umbraco.Web.Mvc.UmbracoTemplatePage
    @{
        Layout = null;
        var newsContainer = Model.Content.Children().FirstOrDefault(x => x.DocumentTypeAlias == "NewsContainer");//this has to be like that...
    }
    @foreach (var article in newsContainer.Children.Where(x => x.DocumentTypeAlias == "NewsArticle"))
    {
        @{
            if(article.HasValue("image")){
                var mediaItem = Umbraco.TypedMedia(article.GetPropertyValue("image")); 
                <img src="@mediaItem.Url"/>    
            }   
        }
    } 
    

    What I get is a weird error: "The valueDictionary is not formatted correctly and is missing any of the 'updateDate' elements".

    Of course my article has a proiperty called "image" and it's a media picker and I chose a picture... so the examples I found simply don't work, if you can post some code that is working for you, inside a foreach loop, I'd be glad to test.

    So again, it's impossible for me to get the media url of a picture selected via media picker. I appreciate to get some CODE, complete, also with the first lines with @using and @inherits statements... THX

    If you let me know which Umbraco version you're using I can provide you with a complete code example.

    Hi Steven,

    that would be nice. I'm using umbraco 6.2.1. Thank you.

    The following works for me:

    @inherits Umbraco.Web.Mvc.UmbracoTemplatePage
    @{
        Layout = null;
        var newsContainer = Model.Content.Children.FirstOrDefault(x => x.DocumentTypeAlias == "NewsContainer");
    }
    
    @foreach (var article in newsContainer.Children.Where(x => x.DocumentTypeAlias == "NewsArticle"))
    {
        if (article.HasValue("image"))
        {
            var mediaItem = Umbraco.TypedMedia(article.GetPropertyValue("image"));
            <img src="@mediaItem.Url" />
        }
    }
    

    This is pretty much the same as your code except that inside the foreach block I don't try to start a new multi-line statement using "@{" which causes a parser error. I'm not sure how your code runs at all with that in there.

    What line exactly does it fail on?
