    Deleting media items and nodes programatically

    Hi all

    I have a .ascx control in C# that should delete selected media items and a node by their id's.

    I can't seem to find either Document.Delete or Node.Delete anywhere in intellisense.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction for this?

    Many thanks

     

    Shaun

    I think i've worked it out.

    Document thisDoc = new Document(intID);
    thisDoc.delete();

    Ahh. Unfortunately that didn't delete anything. 

    Also, when I try to go into admin and right-click delete the media items I'm told

    Delete failed with the following error The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.

    Any ideas?

    using umbraco.cms.businesslogic.media;

    ...

    Document
    thisMedia = new Media(intID);
    thisMedia
    .delete();

    Hi Guys

    Anyone having trouble with Umbraco 8. Here is how I do it.

    public void DeleteMedia(int mediaId)
            {
                try
                {
                    IMedia media = _mediaService.GetById(mediaId);
                    if(media != null)
                        _mediaService.Delete(media);
    
                }
                catch (Exception e)
                {
                    _logger.Error<UmbMediaService>("DeleteMedia | Exception: {0} | Message: {1}", e.InnerException != null ? e.InnerException.ToString() : "", e.Message != null ? e.Message.ToString() : "");
                }
            }
