    Trouble using Imagecropper with dynamic content to render css background image

    I am trying to render an image using image cropper and GetCropUrl for a css background image. I found the code below in the umbraco documentation, but I am having trouble making this dynamic.

    What is the proper way to pull the value based on the current page.

        @{
        var TopImage = Umbraco.TypedMedia(1234);
        if (TopImage != null)
        {
            <style>
            .InnerHero {
                background-image: url("@Url.GetCropUrl(TopImage, "TabletFull", false)");
            }
            </style>
        }
    
    }

    I was able to get it working... most of my issue was syntax.

    I set a second variable to pull the value using Model.Content.GetPropertyValue

    var imgID = Model.Content.GetPropertyValue<int>("HeroImage");
    var TopImage = Umbraco.TypedMedia(imgID); 
    <style>
    .InnerHero {background-image: url("@Url.GetCropUrl(TopImage, "TabletFull", false)");}
    </style>
