    Only display child node if the DocumentTypeAlias is equal to

    Hi there, I have a parent node with 2 different types of child nodes.

    About

    --Bio 1 (Child node type 1)

    --Bio 2 (Child node type 1)

    --FAQ 1 (Child node type 2)

    --FAQ 2 (Child node type 2)

    What I want to do is only display one type of child node ie if the child node document type is == to "fAQ" show FAQ

        @{ var selection = CurrentPage.Children.Where("Visible") && Model.Content.DocumentTypeAlias == "fAQ";  }
        @{ var i = 1; }
        @foreach (var item in selection)
        {
      <p>Hello I am an FAQ child node</p>
            i+=1;
        }
    

    My problem is coming from the Model.Content.DocumentTypeAlias == "fAQ"; i think...

    I cant figure this one out for the life of me. Any help is appreciated.

    To simplify the question: How do you only show a child nodes that have a certain name?

    Hi Lee

    Use this code:

    @{ var selection = Umbraco.AssignedContentItem.Children.Where(x => x.IsVisible() && x.DocumentTypeAlias.Equals("fAQ"));  }
    @{ var i = 1; }
    @foreach (var item in selection)
    {
        <p>Hello I am an FAQ child node @item.Name</p>
        i+=1;
    }
    

    Model.Content.DocumentTypeAlias == "fAQ" is wrong, because Model.Content - it's current page, so you check is current page FAQ?

    Thanks,

    Alex

    Hi Alex,

    Thanks for your input. I implemented that code you provided and could not get it to run properly

    I ended up using this code which worked for me. (Not as slick as your solution but it worked)

        @{ var selection = CurrentPage.Children.Where("Visible"); }
        @{ var i = 0; }
        @foreach (var item in selection)
        {
            if(item.DocumentTypeAlias == "fAQ"){
                 <p>Hello I am an FAQ child node @item.Name</p>
            }
            i += 1;
        }

    I would have thought perhaps something along these lines...?

    foreach (var item in [pageref].Children.Where(n => n.IsVisible() && n.IsDocumentType("fAQ")))
    { if (item.blah blah blah) }
