    How to retrieve nodeId from MNTP?

    I've got the following items in my MTNP:

    I'm trying various code to try and retrieve the nodeIds without any success.  I'm going along the route of:

    foreach(var v in Model.TopPicksRepository.Items.Children)

    foreach(var v in Model.TopPicksRepository.Items.MultiNodePicker.Children)

    Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Hi Anton,

    There's a hepler method in uQuery (GetNodesByXml) to get a collection of the selected nodes from an MNTP xml fragment:

    Node currentNode = uQuery.GetCurrentNode();
    string xml = currentNode.GetProperty<string>("TopPicksRepository");
    foreach(Node pickedNode in uQuery.GetNodesByXml(xml))

    The following should list the items/id's in a MNTP with the alias TopPicksRepository.

    @foreach (var x in Model.TopPicksRepository){ @x.InnerText }

    The code by Hendy works great - Thanks.

    However i can't help but notice the simplicity of Ernst's example which unfortunately doesn't work - In debug mode i can only see that the TopPicksRepository node and not the "items" under it.

    @foreach (var item in Model.TopPicksRepository){<li>@item.InnerText</li>}

    This doesn't work either.

    @foreach (var item in Model.TopPicksRepository.items)

    i like to keep my C# away from my razor view so i got a clean and nice view, just because razor can hold all your logic code there is no excuse for mixing presentation and logic 

    if u dont need some filtering on u items u could just use 

    public static DynamicNodeList MultiNodePicker(this RazorLibraryCore library, DynamicXml dynamicXml)
                var list = new DynamicNodeList();
                foreach (dynamic item in dynamicXml)
                    list.Add(new DynamicNode(item.InnerText));
                return list;





    if u need some filtering on your nodes make a normal static extension that dont work on the RazorLibraryCore but still passes the the dynamicXml, do the filtering there and returns your filtered nodelist that way u can have a clean foreach loop where u pressentation dont have to test for empty string and what not :)
