    Add prevalue in checkbox list from another data source ?

    Hi all,

    I'm quite new to Umbraco. I dont know how to explain clearly the problem I face, but I will use images to demonstrate it.

    For example, I have a content named Company Management which has a company list property. This list is created based on nested content type, so the list is able to add or remove items. (I'm considering using Archetype instead) Pic1

    Now all I want to do is put all the items in this list into prevalue of a permission checkbox property in another content page. It 'll be something like this.

    enter image description here

    So, whenever I update the list on Company Management page, the list items in permission check box also updated.

    Thus, can you give me some advices or approaches for this situation. I searched a lot but nothing good comes up. Maybe I used wrong keywords.

    Hi there, it sounds like the DotNet CheckBox Picker in nuPickers package could help out here.

    using System.Collections.Generic;
    using System.Linq;
    using nuPickers.Shared.DotNetDataSource;
    public class CompaniesDotNetDataSource : IDotNetDataSource
        IEnumerable<KeyValuePair<string, string>> IDotNetDataSource.GetEditorDataItems(int contextId)
            var umbracoHelper = new UmbracoHelper(UmbracoContext.Current);
            var companyManagement = umbracoHelper.TypedContentSingleAtXPath("//companyManagementDocTypeAlias[@isDoc]");
            // if using models builder this should be IEnumerable<IPublishedContent>
            var companies = companyManagement.CompanyList;
            return companies.ToDictionary(x => x.Id.ToString(), x => x.Name);

    HTH, Hendy

    Hi Hendy.

    How are you setting this up? Where are you placing your CompaniesDotNetDataSource.cs ? What are you refering to as Assembley in nupicker setup? I'm runing Umbraco 7.15.3, nuPickers 1.7.1 and donĀ“t have a App_Code folder.
