    V8.1 Umbraco.ContentAtXPath Bug?

    Hi,

    I'm working on a UmbracoAPIController, something which worked fine in v7 seems to have trouble in v8.1

    var a = Umbraco.ContentAtXPath("//docType[@isDoc]");

    Results in:

    System.ArgumentNullException: 'Value cannot be null. Parameter name: doc'

    var b = Umbraco.Content(1234);

    This is the same content and works fine.

    The content in question has no doctype props. Just a name and assigned template.

    Stack Trace:

    Tried using DI for context.

    GetByXpath failed with same error.

    However GetByContentType worked

    using (var ctx = _context.EnsureUmbracoContext())
                {
                    var content = ctx.UmbracoContext.Content.GetByContentType(YourModel.GetModelContentType());
                }

    I'm migrating from 7 to 8 and the same issue is popping up anytime an RTE field has to be rendered. I noticed my macro was using Umbraco.TextboxMultiple instead of the new alias Umbraco.TextArea. After changing the Macro Parameter Editor to Umbraco.TextArea, nothing changed unfortunately, but it may be related... not sure.

    I submitted an issue on GitHub.

    Have you tried

    public IEnumerable<IPublishedContent> ContentOfHomePage()
            {
                return _contextFactory.EnsureUmbracoContext().UmbracoContext.Content.GetByXPath("//home").ToList();
            }
    
            public IEnumerable<IPublishedContent> RetrieveDataViaGetXPath(UmbracoContext context, string doctype)
            {
                string retriveDocType = $"//{doctype}";
                 return context.Content.GetByXPath(retriveDocType).ToList();
            }
    

    Both work fine for me

    Using .ToList() was absolutely necessary on other places in my code. Though it didn't resolve the issue in this location.
    Using umbracoContext.Content.GetByRoute(...); did work as an alternative querying method. This was suggested by Sebastiaan on the GitHub link above.

    I'm getting this same error when trying to render Rich Text area content to an API Controller.

    The Error only happens when the Rich Text Area contains a Macro. If its just plain text the API controller works just fine.

    I've also noticed if I render the content through a normal view first, the API controller will work after that until the node is republished.

    Was on 8.1.0, just upgraded to 8.3.0. Still seeing the issue, but may need to republish all the content or macro definitions to fix it

    The same issue I was encountering was fixed in 8.1.4. Try republishing. GitHub issue here.
