    creating Resource to get a database value


    I want to get a value from the database and so I followed this tutorial: Add-ServerSide-Data

    but the Data (Image url ) is not showing ?? and this is my code :

    1- ApiController:

    public class AframeApiController : UmbracoAuthorizedJsonController
        public mainimg GetMain()
            DataRow[] Accts =DB_Oprs.GetVRMainImg(11359);
            mainimg collection = new mainimg();
            foreach(DataRow r in Accts)
            collection.versionId = r["versionId"].ToString();
            collection.mediaPath = r["mediaPath"].ToString();
            return collection;
        public IEnumerable<mainimg> GetPinsinfo()
            DataRow[] Accts = DB_Oprs.GetVRMainImg(11359);
            IEnumerable<mainimg> collection = Accts.Cast<mainimg>();
            return collection;
    public class mainimg
        public string versionId { set; get; }
        public string mediaPath { set; get; }

    2 -added this to umbraco.resources.js :

        function ($q, $http, umbRequestHelper) {
            // the factory object returned
            return {
                // this calls the ApiController we setup earlier
                getMain: function () {
                    return umbRequestHelper.resourcePromise(
                        "Failed to retrieve GetMain inmage");
                getPins: function () {
                    return umbRequestHelper.resourcePromise(
                        "Failed to retrieve GetPins data");

    3- this is the angular controller code

    .controller("My.ContentController", function ($scope, AframeResource){
            $scope.MainImg =;

    4- this is the html page :

    <div ng-controller="My.ContentController">
            {{MainImg.mediaPath }}

    5- this is the package.manifest

    "propertyEditors": [
      "name": "Content values",
      "alias": "content.values",
      "group": "Content",
      "icon": "icon-map-location",
      "editor": {
        "view": "~/App_plugins/TestMyResource/Test.html",
        "valueType": "STRING"
    }  ],  "javascript": [
    "~/App_plugins/TestMyResource/Content.controller.js"  ]

    can anyone help me ??

    Are you able to provide a bit more on what you are trying to achieve?

    For example if you have the ID of the media stored in umbraco then you could grab the path using something like this:

    string mediaUrl = "";
                //get media using id
                var umbracoHelper = new UmbracoHelper(UmbracoContext.Current);
                var media = umbracoHelper.Media(id);
                mediaUrl = media.url;

    In regards to the code you've provided, are you seeing the versionID pull through as that's what is stated in your html?

    Also have you debugged the code and is mediaPath being returned ok?

    Kind Regards, Lewis

    Hi Lewis,

    I want to create a custom property editor that shows data from the current content page...

    and yes I debugged the code and the controller is retrieving the imagepath. but in the HTML view, nothing is showing....

    Hi again,

    Just trying to narrow down where the problem may lie. Are you able to debug and see what returns? Does that have the expected values?

    Kind Regards, Lewis
