    Accessing parent Content Picker value

    Im trying to get the value of a text string from a page assigned at parent content picker of the current page.

    <xsl:variable name="contactNode" select="$currentPage/parent::*[@isDoc]/listingContact" />
              E-Mail<xsl:value-of select ="umbraco.library:GetXmlNodeById($contactNode)/employeeEmail" />

    I've tried doing it like so. But it dosnt seem that the variable contains the node.

    Hi Martin,

    Try dumping out the values, see what's there?

    <xsl:value-of select="$currentPage/parent::*[@isDoc]/listingContact" />

    or

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

    ... and then ...

    <xmp><xsl:copy-of select="umbraco.library:GetXmlNodeById($contactNode)" /></xmp>

    Cheers, Lee.

    ContactNode returns the ID and the GetXmlNodeById posts all the data of the wished node.
    Now im just strugeling with getting the  employeeEmail

    Martin,

    Can you copy'n'paste your output from the last copy-of statement? From what i'm reading, I think 

    <xsl:value-of select="umbraco.library:GetXmlNodeById($contactNode)/employeeEmail" />

    should be enough to get the field

     

    Cheers,

    /Dirk

    Yeh i would so so too Dirk... But for some reason it dosnt work.
    I'm starting to get fustrated :)
    Been Googleing and using our.umbraco to find a solution. There must be a human error somewhere. 

    The code:

    <xsl:variable name="contactNode" select="$currentPage/parent::*[@isDoc]/listingContact" />

    Works

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

    Does write the correct Id

    <xsl:value-of select="umbraco.library:GetXmlNodeById($contactNode)/employeeEmail" />

    Nothing...

    Martin,

    so what is the output of

    <xmp><xsl:value-ofselect="umbraco.library:GetXmlNodeById($contactNode)"/></xmp>

    as Lee already pointed out?

     

    Cheers,

    /Dirk

    It returned the Id: 1472

    Fixed it... Deleted the "employEmail" and created it again... Guess there was some internal error somewhere.

    FYI: recrated the property.

    Out of curiousity, what was the property actually called, "employeeEmail" or "employEmail"?
