    Manually adding Courier Dependencies.

    I have created a custom property data resolver.  

    I have added a override to the PackagingProvider method.

    I am trying to add dependancies based on the items selected in the property.

    That is if they select two documents and a media item(Its a MultiUrlPicker property) I want to add those selections as dependencies to the docuemnt so that that will be deployed along with the document.

    But if I try item.Dependencies.Add in the property resolver it doesn't work. (Im thinking its becouse its adding the dependanceis to the property data not to the document but I dont know how to do this so it works as I need.

    Any sugessions?  Oh is there a way for me to access the document item from within the property packaging code.

    Oh, while as there was no suggestions.  after much more testing and time spend trying things i finnaly figured it out.  The following will add item directly to the que, not a dependency, but it will still add and deploy it.


                    CurrentItemProvider.ExecutionContext.CurrentPackaging.AddToQueue(new ItemIdentifier(guid, ProviderIDCollection.documentItemProviderGuid), false, 0);

    Now if i can just figure out how to check the current dependy selection(Self, 1,2,3, or all) so that I can just run the above code when dependencies are being deployed,

    Hi Jeremy

    For further reference, there is a complete library of dataresolvers, open sourced here:

    They should pretty much all the things you can do with these resolvers. 

    Also, there are some more detailed docs on the data resolvers and how to build them here:

    Dependencies can be added but there is another way for it. the link provided in above reply helps to  get the basic idea of doing it.
