    Extend Model with a property for all document types for use in all views

    I have a property on all document types headline and right now it is used in redundant code in two (could be more) view files:

    Meta data partial view:

    <title>@(Model.Value<string>("headline") != "" ? Model.Value("headline") : Model.Name)</title>
    

    Different template views:

    <h1>@(Model.Value<string>("headline") != "" ? Model.Value("headline") : Model.Name)</h1>
    

    I am now trying to extend the Model so I can use Model.Value("PageTitle) / Model.PageTitle instead.

    But I must admit that I can´t find out. I have done a lot og Razor in views, but not yet worked with my own custom classes i .NET nor Umbraco.

    One thing I have found out, though: This doesn´t work (and also seems to be tied up on only the SiteHome document type)! :)

    namespace Umbraco.Web.PublishedModels
    {
        public partial class SiteHome
        {
            public string PageTitle
            {
                get
                {
                   return Model.Value<string>("headline") != "" ? Model.Value("headline") : Model.Name;
                }
            }
        }
    }

    Hi Martin

    You 'used' to be able to specify a base class for all your generated Modelsbuilder Models:

    https://our.umbraco.com/Documentation/Reference/Templating/Modelsbuilder/Control-Generation-vpre8_5#models-base-class

    But I think this may have been removed from the Core version of Umbraco in version 8.5, and in order to do this you may require the external plugin:

    regards

    Marc
