    Macro, Content picker sshow selected item.


    I have a question about Macro/ partial View Macro and Contentpicker

    My problem is that when i go in to gridlayout => choose a Macro to put in => choose an item "like the second item", then the first item in the list appears. And its because its "FirstOrDefault()" i only want to show one of them.

    var selection = Model.Content.Site().FirstChild("blog").Children("blogpost").FirstOrDefault();
    var pickedContent = Model.MacroParameters["productPicker"];
    <div> <p>@selection.Name</p></div>

    enter image description here

    So what should i do if i want to display the second one, or the third one? enter image description here

    Thanks Kind regards/ Emil

    Hi Emil

    So when you read the 'picked' blog article id from the macro parameter

    var pickedContent = Model.MacroParameters["productPicker"];

    You can then use this id to retrieve the full blog post content from Umbraco, using the Umbraco TypedContent helper eg

        IPublishedContent pickedBlogPost = Umbraco.TypedContent(pickedContent);
    <div> <p>@pickedBlogPost.Name</p></div>
