    Extracting nested content value from surface controller

    Hello, I'm trying to access some data from a SurfaceController, but I'm having some issues. This is how it looks right now:

    public class PublicationsController : SurfaceController
    {
        [HttpPost]
        public ActionResult GetAll()
        {
            var page = Umbraco.Content(Guid.Parse(/*guid*/));
        }
    }
    

    Not sure if that's a good start, but I can access the properties to some extent. I have a nested content property that holds what I need to access. I can manage to get the alias of this nested content property, however I need to extract everything inside it so I can serialize this into json. Right now this nested content property holds different folders, with media items inside of these folders. Any pointers?

    Hi,

    Nested content return a single or multiple instances of IPublishedElement

    https://our.umbraco.com/Documentation/Fundamentals/Backoffice/property-editors/built-in-property-editors/Nested-Content/

    If you know the property alias, your method could be:

    var page = Umbraco.Content(Guid.Parse(/*guid*/));
    var nested = page.Value<IEnumerable<IPublishedElement>>("myPropertyAlias");
    return Content("{nested?.Count() ?? 0} elements found");

    Well now I feel silly .. I had forgotten a "using" statement to access it like that. Thank you!
