    Get teaser text from grid layout

    As in headline I would like to know if I easily can get like the first 100 words from a grid layout. I using the grid layout to my news because it gives a more flexible way to insert content.

    Hi Dan,

    One of the limitations about the grid layout at the momemnt is that you can´t get specific parts of the grid content, you will get the whole JSON, when you get the data by using the

    @CurrentPage.GetGridHtml("propertyAlias")

    Or

    @Model.Content.GetGridHtml("propertyAlias")

    See the documentation about grid layout best practices andthe limitations here: https://our.umbraco.org/Documentation/Using-Umbraco/Backoffice-Overview/Property-Editors/Built-in-Property-Editors-v7/Grid-Layout-Best-Practices#Limitations

    Hope this helps,

    /Dennis

    Yes this I actually was already aware of that you get the whole JSON, so you would not suggest me to start digging in to the JSON and getting what I need?..

    Hi Dan,

    If you know how you can dig into the JSON object, and get the data you need, then I can´t see why you shouldn't give it a try. And if you find any downside, with it, then you know why, and then you should consider find another way of structure your news items.

    But just my thoughts.
