    How do I pass parameters to and read from them in a Razor macro?

    I have an Umbraco 4.11 site with a Macro I have created. It has a parameter called ArticleId.

    I am currently trying to pass it like this...

    @Umbraco.RenderMacro("ForeignArticleWrapper", new { ArticleId = Umbraco.Field("featuredArticle").ToString() });

    I have also tried...

    @Umbraco.RenderMacro("ForeignArticleWrapper", new { ArticleId = 1090 });


    I am trying to render the value in the macro using

    @Parameter.ArticleId, but it returns nothing.


    What am I doing wrong?

    I have the same problem but I can't find a single clue.

    It's like the @Umbraco.RenderMacro doesn't work! Even the syntax @Umbraco.RenderMacro("MacroName") doesn't work.

    Do you have found something?

    I ended up replacing all my Macros with Partial Views instead.

    instead of

    @Parameter.ArticleId ..

    This is tested for version 6, I don't know if it still works for v4.

    Here are the first few lines of a macro I have that has a parameter being passed in. If you don't already have these inherits or usings, try adding them and see if you have any luck.

    @inherits umbraco.MacroEngines.DynamicNodeContext

    @using umbraco.MacroEngines;

    @using umbraco;


        var numItems = int.Parse(Parameter.numItems);

    You almost there. One major thing you missed was to add ArticleId in the list of parameters for the macro in the developer section

    In the template

    @Umbraco.RenderMacro("YourMacro" ,new {ArticleId = @Umbraco.Field("yourField")})

    In the XSLT

    <xsl:param name="ArticleId" select="/macro/ArticleId"/>

    Then you can do what you want with it

    <xsl:value-of select="$ArticleId" />

    Again don't forget to add ArticleId as a parameter to your macro from the developer section in umbraco
