    XSLT GetMedia/umbracoFile returns new schema??


    Just started to develop a new website with the latest build (Umbraco version 7.4.1 assembly: 1.0.5891.23238), and found that


    returns a new schema, and i can not get rid of it.

    <img src="{umbraco.library:GetMedia(./image, 0)/umbracoFile} />

    returns this:

    <img src="{src: '/media/1001/1-nothumbnail.jpg', crops: []}>

    I just want the URL of the image, nothing else.. Anyone experienced the same?

    Thanks, Istvan

    Hi Istvan,

    Yes, that's the new Umbraco 7 way - many property editors are storing their data as JSON these days...

    If you just want the URL and doesn't want to handle the croppings, you can use another helper method to turn the JSON chunk into XML:

    <xsl:variable name="mediaNode" select="umbraco.library:GetMedia(image, false())" />
    <xsl:variable name="data" select="umbraco.library:JsonToXml($mediaNode/umbracoFile)" />
    <img src="{$data/src}" />

    Hope that helps,

    Hi Chriztian!

    Thanks, your solution works, as always! :)

    Wondering how i could not realize that the return format is JSON..

    Thanks, Istvan
