    Navigation List Error from Youtube vide How to Build ..Part 5

    Hi I'm following Paul Seal and struggeling with a navigationlist https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zRDHK_isHCQ I have I SiteLayoutController and render it to an Partial View and i get an Error CS1660 Cannot convert lambda expression to type 'string' because it is not a delegate type.

    I have changed from Model to currentpage but get an error on x.DocumentTypeAlias I have tested to inster using Umbraco.Web but it dosen't help

    Can someone help me!

    The Code IPublishedContent homePage = CurrentPage.AncestorOrSelf(1).DescendantsOrSelf().Where(x => x.DocumentTypeAlias == "Home").FirstOrDefault();

            List<NavigationListItem> nav = new List<NavigationListItem>();
            nav.Add(new NavigationListItem(new NavigationLink(homePage.Url, homePage.Name)));
            nav.AddRange(GetChildNavigationList(homePage));
            return nav;

    The issue is with your Where clause.

    The error you get is Error CS1660 Cannot convert lambda expression to type 'string' meaning your expression x => x.DocumentTypeAlias == "Home" is not a string.

    Try ..Where("DocumentTypeAlias == \"Home\"")

    Thanks! But it dosen't work se error below

    If I use this code it works, but i prefer the other one
    const int HOMEPAGEPOSITIONINPATH = 1; int homePageId = int.Parse(CurrentPage.Path.Split(',')[HOMEPAGEPOSITIONINPATH]); IPublishedContent homePage = Umbraco.Content(homePageId);

    If you post the entire code here I will take a look.

    Hi

    I am replying here as your code broke the topic, not sure how!

    I would say that instead of trying to find Home and then listing the children, use Umbraco.TypedContentAtRoot(); and list the Children, try to stay away from DescendantsOrSelf as that may return more pages than you need in the navigation.

    Also, try and use IsVisible or Visible for those pages that are published.

    Thanks
