    Hi Aki,

    If you have access to the Umbraco TV website, then I think this is a good place to start. http://umbraco.tv/videos/umbraco-v7/implementor/fundamentals/grid-layouts

    Another one is the documentation of the grid layout data type. https://our.umbraco.org/documentation/getting-started/backoffice/property-editors/built-in-property-editors/grid-layout

    Hope this helps,

    /Dennis

    Uhh! nice thanks..

    Most of what i were looking fore..

    the Manifest and the folder structure is nice.. and i do have some AngularJS experience so its prefect..

    Just one more thing..

    im looking for a way to select a Content element and get all the childs listed in the editor..

    I have a Content document called Products and i want the user to be able to select which product should be featured on the page

    as i understand it a Json is generated from the Row elements and then displayed on the front end.. if im not mistaken if a product is added after the json was build that product is not shown ? if thats is the case this approched is not the way i should go about the problem.. or is it more dynamic than that?

    Thanks again for the link..

    Hi Aki,

    If I understand your question correctly then you want to select a item using the content picker https://our.umbraco.org/documentation/getting-started/backoffice/property-editors/built-in-property-editors/content-picker

    Then you make a foreach loop that loop though each of the children to the picked item. This can you do in a partial view macro file and then add this macro to the grid layout. http://umbraco.tv/videos/umbraco-v7/implementor/working-with-umbraco-data/macros/using-macros-in-the-rte/

    Hope this helps,

    /Dennis

    Hi Aki,

    What I think you can do is to add the content picker to the document type where you want the user to pick the product category. http://umbraco.tv/videos/umbraco-v7/implementor/fundamentals/document-types/properties/

    The you can create a partial macro file (Developer section). This partial macro file should contain, something like this code.

    @{
      if (CurrentPage.HasValue("contentPicker")){
        var node = Umbraco.Content(CurrentPage.contentPicker);
            foreach(child in node.Children.Where("Visible")){
                @child.Name
            }
      }
    }
    

    Where contetPicker is the alias of your property.

    Hope this helps,

    /Dennis

    Hi again Dennis.

    yes and no the thing is we want to use the grid system to get a wysiwyg view of the page in the backoffice..

    but as i can read i cant get cshtml to render in the backoffice in the grid view.. and i could not get the Property id to get the cshtml to render the content based on ids on the front end..

    @inherits Umbraco.Web.Mvc.UmbracoViewPage<dynamic>
    //Getting the Model.value.id Property form the Json is fine
    
    <pre>Game id @Model.value.id</pre>
    //and i can see the Content id.. now i want to read the Id:
    //this is where Things break for me.. 
    @var page = @umbraco.content(@Model.value.id).children();
    //Im not sure what to import to make the umbraco.Content
    //part work from the cshtml within the Grid editor
    

    the only possibility i can see is to expose the content list in a service so that i can access the properties in Angular...

    Again thanks for your guidance... ill look for a solution have a nice day Aki :)
