    AncestorOrSelf stops working when casting Model to DynamicNode

    I want to have some  intellisense by casting my Model to DynamicNode, but once I do that I get errors. This works:

    <nav> 
        <ul> 
            @foreach (var item in Model.AncestorOrSelf(1).Children.Where("umbracoNaviHide == false"))
            {  
                <li>
                    <a href="@item.Url" @(item.Id == Model.Id ? "class=current" : "")>
                        @item.Name
                    </a>
                </li> 
            }
        </ul> 
    </nav> 
    
    But when I try this one:
    @using umbraco.MacroEngines;
    @{ var currentPage = (DynamicNode)Model; }
    <nav> 
        <ul> 
            @foreach (var item in currentPage.AncestorOrSelf(1).Children.Where("umbracoNaviHide == false"))
    { <li> <a href="@item.Url" @(item.Id == Model.Id ? "class=current" : "")> @item.Name </a> </li> } </ul> </nav>

    I get an error:

    'umbraco.MacroEngines.DynamicNode' does not contain a definition for 'Children' and no extension method 'Children' accepting a first argument of type 'umbraco.MacroEngines.DynamicNode'

    Could you remove .Children all together?

    Use this :

    @{ dynamic currentPage = (DynamicNode)Model; }

    Instead of

    @{ var currentPage = (DynamicNode)Model; }

    Hmm, interesting, so if I define it as a dynamic instead of a var, I loose Intellisense. But it does work just fine indeed!

    Can you try it without the cast?

    @{ dynamic currentPage = Model; }
