    Rendering Macro Content via User Controls

    Hey there guys, I am using a user control to pull in content ID's that I want to display on a page.  I have split and can itterate through them getting the data from each, however some contain macro's in the RichTextArea's.

    How via .net can I tell those Macro's to render?  Code example below...

    Partial Class usercontrols_Widgets_sidebar_content
        Inherits System.Web.UI.UserControl
        Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
            Dim nodeId As New Integer
            Dim sideBarIds As String
            Dim contentId As Integer
            nodeId = umbraco.presentation.nodeFactory.Node.GetCurrent.Id
            uxTemp.Text = nodeId
            Dim myNode As New umbraco.presentation.nodeFactory.Node(nodeId)
            sideBarIds = myNode.GetProperty("sideBarContent").Value ' GET THE COMMA SEPERATED LIST OF ID'S
            Dim idArray As Object
            idArray = Split(sideBarIds, ",")
            For Each itm In idArray
                Integer.TryParse(itm, contentId)
                Dim dynamicNode As New umbraco.presentation.nodeFactory.Node(contentId)
                Response.Write("Your ID is: " & contentId)
            Next itm
        End Sub
    End Class

    YEAH!  I figured it out.  To close the loop and help anyone with the same issue, using the API you can do something like this for example.

    Response.Write(umbraco.library.RenderMacroContent(contentString, contentId))

    Awesome, this post finally solved my issue for me today. I was unable to use the umbraco item server field in my masterpage as the data had to go through some token parse / replace functionality. Using your function I was then able to get my macros to render after drawing the page content through as a standard .net class property fetch.

    Although, the postback from within the macro is not working now. Hmmm.

    I might have to dig out a build of the umbraco source code at this rate and push my custom property retrieval logic into the underlying fetch mechanism.
