    Getting dropdown property value from descendant

    Hi All,

    Can someone please explain why this works. I want to retrieve all property listings where the proeprtyCategory value is set to 'To Let' in a drop down data type

    var propertiesToLet = Model.Content.Descendants("propertyListingPage").Where(x => x.GetPropertyValue<bool>("propertyCategory")).ToList().OrderBy("CreateDate desc");
    

    and this doesnt

    var propertiesToLet = Model.Content.Descendants("propertyListingPage").Where(x => x.GetPropertyValue<string>("propertyCategory == To Let")).ToList().OrderBy("CreateDate desc");
    

    enter image description here

    many thanks

    Paul

    I think just a little syntax issue:

    var propertiesToLet = Model.Content.Descendants("propertyListingPage").Where(x => x.GetPropertyValue<string>("propertyCategory") == "To Let")).ToList().OrderBy("CreateDate desc");

    Hi,

    Above example works for a single dropdown value, but if dropdown enabled with multiple choice then how to compare the value in the where clause?
