    Hi Dan,

    I have a Document type with Data type as DatePicker as a start date(Like an Event).
    The document type has additional properties like Title, Image, Description etc..
    I need to list out those based on Month and Year. current Month + 5 Months.

    First thing I think I need to Get the Informaton in a list like this

    August 2011  Item1Title ItemDesc ItemImage
    August 2011  Item2Title ItemDesc ItemImage
    September 2011  Item1Title ItemDesc ItemImage
    September 2011  Item2Title ItemDesc ItemImage
    October 2011 Item1Title ItemDesc ItemImage
    October 2011  Item2Title ItemDesc ItemImage


    Then I will list that under

    August 2011
       Item1.....
       Item2.....

    September 2011
     Item1....
     Item2....
    Octpber 2011
     Item1....
     Item2....

    I am facing some problems with manipulating datepicker value in Razor like we do in LINQ or SQL.

    Hope the question is clear now.

    Appreciate your help.

    Thanks,
    Rajeev

    Hi Rajeev,

    OK, I can at least help you with the first part, which is the initial listing for the next 5 months. Assuming your event date property is called DisplayDate then you could do this:

    @inherits umbraco.MacroEngines.DynamicNodeContext
    
    @{
        var nodes = Model.Descendants().Where("Visible")
            .OrderBy("DisplayDate")
            .Where("DisplayDate > DateTime.Now.Date && DisplayDate < DateTime.Now.Date.AddMonths(5)");
    
        <ul>
        @foreach (var item in nodes)
        {
            <li>
               @item.DisplayDate.ToString("MMMM yyyy") : @item.Name
            </li>
        }
        </ul>
    }

    The second part is more tricky. The way I would have done it in using standard LINQ queries doesn't work with Umbraco. If I get some time I'll have a think and see if there's another way that does work.

    I have modified the foreach section as following  to achieve this.

    @inherits umbraco.MacroEngines.DynamicNodeContext

    @{

    //current month value to compare
    string monthYear=String.Empty;

    var nodes =Model.Descendants().Where("Visible")
    .OrderBy("displayDate")
    .Where("displayDate >= DateTime.Now.Date && displayDate < DateTime.Now.Date.AddMonths(5)");

     @foreach (var item in nodes)
       
    {


     

     //if the month changed to another month then display monthyear header
     @if(!monthYear.Equals(item.displayDate.ToString("MMMM yyyy")))

          
     {
          
     

          
             monthYear=item.displayDate.ToString("MMMM yyyy");
     
           

    @monthYear


     


     }

            @item.title

            @item.description
           

    }

    }

    Thank you Dan again for your help.
