    How to get content from block list elements before node save and insert/save to a node property?

    How to get content from block list elements before node save and insert/save to a node property?

    On my page nodes I have a property 'ribbons' of type Umbraco.BlockList. I also have a text property 'browserTitle'.

    When an editor saves the document I want to traverse the ribbons and look for the first ribbon element where property 'healine' is not empty and put that value into the node's 'browserTitleResult' property just before the node is saved.

    (use case is that if 'browserTitle' is empty I can use 'browserTitleResult' for page title instead)

    I have tried using examples from https://docs.umbraco.com/umbraco-cms/fundamentals/code/umbraco-services#access-in-a-custom-class-via-dependency-injection but I cant figure it out.

    Umbraco 13.3.0

    Hi, Martin!

    I believe that you have to implement custom ContentSaving notification handler. It will be triggered before content saved and you can modify properties of your page in a way you want (parse existing and fill-in empty).

    Documentation: https://docs.umbraco.com/umbraco-cms/reference/notifications/contentservice-notifications

    I have made this PoC now:

    using Umbraco.Cms.Core.Events;
    using Umbraco.Cms.Core.Notifications;
    
    namespace MartinRud.ContentService;
    public class SeoAutomations : INotificationHandler<ContentPublishingNotification>
    {
        public void Handle(ContentPublishingNotification notification)
        {
            foreach (var node in notification.PublishedEntities)
            {
    
                if (node.ContentType.Alias.Contains("page"))
                {
                    Console.WriteLine("Test for node " + node.Name);
                    node.SetValue("browserTitleResult", "Testing...");
                }    
    
            }
        }
    }
    

    The Console.WriteLine() shows up fine in the terminal, but in Umbraco backend I get:

    Martin,

    You used ContentPublishingNotification so, your handler will be triggered right before content will be published. I believe you want to make a change on content saving:

    public class SavingAutomationAction : INotificationHandler<ContentSavingNotification>
    {
        private readonly IContentService _contentService;
        private readonly ISqlContext _sqlContext;
    
        public SavingAutomationAction (IContentService contentService, ISqlContext sqlContext)
        {
            _contentService = contentService;
            _sqlContext = sqlContext;
        }
    
        public void Handle(ContentSavingNotification notification)
        {
            foreach (var node in notification.SavedEntities)
            {
                if (node.HasIdentity is false)  // When entity is newly created
                {
                    foreach (var property in node.Properties)   // Iterate all props
                    {
                        var currentProp = node.GetValue(property.Alias);
                        node.SetValue(property.Alias, currentProp  + "TEST");
                    }
                }
            }
        }
    }

    I have tried this:

    public class SavingAutomationAction : INotificationHandler

    public SavingAutomationAction (IContentService contentService, ISqlContext sqlContext)
    {
        _contentService = contentService;
        _sqlContext = sqlContext;
    }
    
    public void Handle(ContentSavingNotification notification)
    {   
        Console.WriteLine("SavingAutomationAction");
        foreach (var node in notification.SavedEntities)
        {
            foreach (var property in node.Properties)   // Iterate all props
            {
                var currentProp = node.GetValue(property.Alias);
                Console.WriteLine("Property: " + property.Alias);
                Console.WriteLine("Value: " + currentProp);
                //node.SetValue(property.Alias, currentProp?.ToString() + "TEST");
            }
        }
    }
    

    }

    In the terminal I get empty values only (even though some of them are NOT empty):

    SavingAutomationAction
    Property: headline
    Value:
    Property: pageAbstract
    Value:
    Property: ribbons
    Value:
    Property: text
    Value:
    Property: image
    Value:
    Property: browserTitle
    

    If I uncomment this line:

    //node.SetValue(property.Alias, currentProp?.ToString() + "TEST");
    

    I get:

    Received an error from the server
    An error occurred
    Variation "<null>,<null>" is not supported by the property type.

    Not sure why you're getting empty values - just tested on U13 site - works like a charm. Maybe try to set breakpoint at the beginning of Handle method and debug.

    P.S> assuming that you added following line to umbraco builder somewhere between .AddComposers() and .Build() at Program.cs (or Startup.cs):

    .AddNotificationHandler<ContentSavingNotification, SavingAutomationAction>()
