    Hide menu items based on permission


    I'm trying to create a simple menu which will only show items that a user has access to.

    For example, we have a website with a home page (public) and then two private sections A and B.

    When the user is not logged in, I want to show the link to "home" only. When the user is logged in and has permission to access "section A" the menu should display "Section A".

    I've seen a post about the function "WhereHasAccess()" from Umbraco 5, but can't seem to find anything about 6 or 7.

    At the moment all I have is:

       var menuItems = homePage.Children;

    I thought I could have something like this:

    var menuItems = homePage.Children.WhereHasAccess();


    var menuItems = homePage.Children.Where(x => x.WhereHasAccess());

    But neither option works at all.

    Please can someone point me in the right direction?

    The above two incorrect statements give the error:

    Cannot use a lambda expression as an argument to a dynamically dispatched operation without first casting it to a delegate or expression tree type

    Just in case anyone else comes across this, I have managed to find the answer.

    I was using item.HasAccess() and item.IsProtected() to try to determine whether a node is protected and, if so, whether the user has access permissions.

    However, what I should have used is umbraco.library.HasAccess(, item.path), where item is a valid node.

    Hopefully this will help someone else in the future looking for how to do this.

    Could you post your whole code to see how you implemented his?
