    Share common @helper with Model Builder in PureLive mode


    I am developing an Umbraco 7.6 site where I have to use PureLive mode for Model Builder.

    Is there a way to share and reuse a common @helper which uses ModeBuilder generated class between different Views/Partialviews?

    If I put it in App_Code folder, it won't compile since the ModelBuilder generated class are not available to the compiler...

    Is there a way to "include" one .cshtml in another?

    Hi Marco

    I have previously been able to add a cshtml named App_Code/MyProject/GlobalHelpers.cshtml.

    In this I had the following:

    @using Umbraco.Web;
    @helper RenderBreadcrumb(int id)
        var uh = new UmbracoHelper(UmbracoContext.Current);
        var basenode = uh.TypedContent(id);
        var nodes = basenode.Ancestors().Where(x => x.GetPropertyValue("umbracoBreadcrumbHide") != "1");
        <ol class="breadcrumb">
            @foreach (var node in nodes)
                <li><a href="@node.Url">@node.GetPropertyValue("navName", node.Name)</a></li>
            <li class="active">@basenode.GetPropertyValue("navName", basenode.Name)</li>

    In my views I could then type:


    And get a breadcrumb.

    Don't know if it works with modelsbuilder though, but you can try!
