    Custom Property Value Converter

    Hello Everyone.

    I am stuck tryin' to make a Custom Property Value Converter. That has to convert Json data from my Plugin to custom Object called MyLookAlikeArchetypeModel.

    What i wanna be able to do is this

    @using myOwnDll.Something
    var obj = Model.Content.GetPropertyValue<MyLookAlikeArchetypeModel>("propertyAlias")
    @foreach(var item in obj) 
    { 
        <p>@item.Name</p>
        <p>@item.Value</p>
    }
    

    what is got is this

    using System.Collections.Generic;
    using Umbraco.Core.Models.PublishedContent;
    using Umbraco.Core.PropertyEditors;
    using Newtonsoft.Json;
    
    public class MyLookAlikeArchetypeFieldSet
    {
        [JsonProperty("name")]
        public string Name { get; private set; }
    
        [JsonProperty("nalue")]
        public string Value { get; private set; }
    }
    
    // Its this one i cant figure out 'I think.'
    public class MyLookAlikeArchetypeModel : List<MyLookAlikeArchetypeFieldSet> {}
    
    public class MyLookAlikeArchetypeModelPropertyConverter : IPropertyValueConverter
    {
        public object ConvertDataToSource(PublishedPropertyType propertyType, object source, bool preview)
        {
            return source;
        }
    
        public object ConvertSourceToObject(PublishedPropertyType propertyType, object source, bool preview)
        {
            try
            {
                return JsonConvert.DeserializeObject<List<MyLookAlikeArchetypeFieldSet>>(source as string);
            }
            catch
            {
                return null;
            }
        }
    
        public object ConvertSourceToXPath(PublishedPropertyType propertyType, object source, bool preview)
        {
            return null;
        }
    
        public bool IsConverter(PublishedPropertyType propertyType)
        {
            return propertyType.PropertyEditorAlias.Equals("My.Plugin.Package.Manifest.Alias");
        }
    }
    

    I hope someone can help.

    Json data would be

    [ 
       { "name": "A name", "value": "A value" }, 
       { "name": "Another name", "value": "Another value" }
     ]
    

    And i got it working with this

    using System.Collections.Generic;
    using Umbraco.Core.Models.PublishedContent;
    using Umbraco.Core.PropertyEditors;
    using Newtonsoft.Json;
    using System.Linq;
    
    public class MyLookAlikeArchetypeFieldSet
    {
        [JsonProperty("name")]
        public string Name { get; set; }
    
        [JsonProperty("value")]
        public string Value { get; set; }
    }
    
    public class MyLookAlikeArchetypeModel
    {
        private List<MyLookAlikeArchetypeFieldSet> _Items;
    
        public MyLookAlikeArchetypeModel()
        {
            _Items = new List<MyLookAlikeArchetypeFieldSet>();
        }
    
        public MyLookAlikeArchetypeModel(List<MyLookAlikeArchetypeFieldSet> list)
        {
            _Items = list;
        }
    
        public IEnumerator<MyLookAlikeArchetypeFieldSet> GetEnumerator()
        {
            return _Items.GetEnumerator();
        }
    
        public bool Any()
        {
            return _Items.Any();
        }
    }
    
    public class MyLookAlikeArchetypeModelPropertyConverter : IPropertyValueConverter
    {
        public object ConvertDataToSource(PublishedPropertyType propertyType, object source, bool preview)
        {
            return source;
        }
    
        public object ConvertSourceToObject(PublishedPropertyType propertyType, object source, bool preview)
        {
            try
            {
                var list = JsonConvert.DeserializeObject<List<MyLookAlikeArchetypeFieldSet>>(source as string);
                return new MyLookAlikeArchetypeModel(list);
            }
            catch
            {
                return new MyLookAlikeArchetypeModel();
            }
        }
    
        public object ConvertSourceToXPath(PublishedPropertyType propertyType, object source, bool preview)
        {
            return null;
        }
    
        public bool IsConverter(PublishedPropertyType propertyType)
        {
            return propertyType.PropertyEditorAlias.Equals("My.Plugin.Package.Manifest.Alias");
        }
    }
    

    now i can use what i wanted.

    var obj = Model.Content.GetPropertyValue<MyLookAlikeArchetypeModel>("propertyAlias")
    @if(obj.Any())
    {
        foreach(var item in obj)
        {
            <p>@item.Name</p>
            <p>@item.Value</p>
        }
    }
    

    If anyone got a better solution. Please let me know!

            return propertyType.PropertyEditorAlias.Equals("My.Plugin.Package.Manifest.Alias");
        }
    }
    }
    

    but the obj returning as empty

     var obj = Model.Content.GetPropertyValue<MyLookAlikeArchetypeModel>("promo");
    

    the response for CurrentPage.GetPropertyValue("promo");

     [ { "alias": "1", "content": "1", "img": "/media/1069/509253678.jpg" }, { "alias": "Slide 2", "content": "2", "img": "/media/1074/636609180.jpg" } ] 
    

    any help will be appreciated

    Hi Gayathri.

    I think you need a check on your obj is empty before rendering it.
