    Add to and pass List<> of nodes

    Hi Folks,

    I've got a helper method (installed as part of uBlogsy) which takes a List<> of nodes, cycles through the list and does some stuff...

    @helper renderNodes(List<umbraco.NodeFactory.Node> nodes)
    {
    
        //Does some stuff here...not included for ease of reading
    }
    

    Currently I build a list of nodes up (gained from the Alias and pass this to the helper) but I need to change my functionality.

    Basically I now have to build the list from a set number of node ID that are stored in a DB, so I'm declaring a 'node' list.

    var myNodeList = new List<umbraco.NodeFactory.Node>();
    

    And I'm trying to add to this list a node that I've gotten via it's ID but I can't see a helper in umbraco.NodeFactory.Node that allows me to do this and trying Umbraco.Content(####) allows me to get the Node but I can't add it to the list.

    Can anybody shed some light or help please?!?

    Thanks, C

    Hi Craig

    Umbraco Node and Umbraco.Content are different entities, you can't use both in one List, because List is a list of objects the same type.

    Try to use Umbraco.Content(####) for all items or event better - Umbraco.TypedContent(####)

    Thanks,

    Alex

    Hi Alex,

    I'm not sure how to define and pass these items as a list.

    Thanks

    Craig, you can pass a list of node ids to Umbraco.TypedContent() and Umbraco.Content() and have a list of IPublishedContent what is a new way of working with Nodes in Umbraco.

    Node is deprecated, what version of Umbraco are you using?

    You can use:

    Umbraco.TypedContent(listOfIds)

    Hi Craig,

    I would recommend using the newer IPublishedContent as opposed to NodeFactory.

        var myNodeList = new List<IPublishedContent>();
        var someNode = Umbraco.TypedContent(1234);
        myNodeList.Add(someNode);
    

    Regards

    Craig
