    Umbraco 8 - Where is .DocumentTypeAlias?

    Anyone know what happened to .DocumentTypeAlias property in Umbraco 8?

    I've looked at the source and IPublishedContent doesn't appear to have the property available; has the name changed or has it been moved elsewhere?

    Any ideas on how to get access to it?

    Thanks!

    Hi Olly,

    It has changed a bit in V8

    You will need do this to get the doctype alias

    @Model.ContentType.Alias

    There's a useful extension method on IPublishedContent too if you want to check a content item is of a given document type: @Model.IsDocumentType("myDocType").

    And if you have access to the PublishedContentModels you can use f.e. MediaBlock.ModelTypeAlias
