    Problem fetching image in view in Umbraco 7.5

    This code worked perfectly fine in Umbraco 7.3.

    var image = Umbraco.TypedMedia( ( int )CurrentPage.BannerBackgroundImage.Id );

    BannerBackgroundImage is of data type Media Picker.

    In a clean Umbraco 7.5.4 install I get the following Exception (RuntimeBinderException).

    'Umbraco.Web.Models.DynamicPublishedContentList' does not contain a definition for 'Id'

    Umbraco.ModelsBuilder.Enable is set to false in the web.config.

    How should I solve this?

    Thanks! Gert.

    Hi Gert,please try it

    @if (CurrentPage.HasValue("BannerBackgroundImage")) {

                          @{var dynamicMediaItem = Umbraco.Media(CurrentPage.BannerBackgroundImage);
                         <img src="@dynamicMediaItem.umbracoFile" alt="@dynamicMediaItem.Name" style="width:100%; " />

    Hi Carlu,

    This didn't help, but the following did

     IPublishedContent image = Umbraco.TypedMedia( CurrentPage.BannerBackgroundImage.First().Id );

    So it's a mystery to me why the Media Picker suddenly returns a collection in Umbraco 7.5? I also had to explicitely define the type IPublishedContent because when I used the var keyword, then the type was not correctly inferred and the call:

    imageUrl = image.GetCropUrl( 800, 600 );

    did not work. Image then turnes out to be of type dynamic and the call GetCropUrl() throws an exception: 'Umbraco.Web.Models.PublishedContentWithKeyBase' does not contain a definition for 'GetCropUrl'

    What is also strange is that the call image.GetPropertyValue( "umbracoWidth" ); returns a string now instead of an integer. Any idea why this is changed in Umbraco 7.5?

    Regards, Gert.

    I found a solution for the media picker returning a collection. When I go the the Media Picker data type and I check the option, "Pick multiple items", save it, uncheck it and save it again then the media picker property won't return a collection but instead a single (dynamic) Umbraco.Web.Models.PublishedContentWithKeyBase which should be casted to IPublisheContent.

    Cheers, Gert.
