    I'm making an API controller that is supposed to send content over requests.

    On a project created in 8.1.5 I have no issues with accessing content of a specific type like this:

    Home home = Umbraco.ContentAtXPath("//home").OfType<Home>().First();

    The 8.1.5 is a project I use for testing things out before moving to the commercial project.

    However, if I try and do the exact line of code on the actual project (which is in 8.2.2) the Home (or whatever type) is just null. I checked in the tree and all the content is published.

    Afterwards I changed line to use Where and Select instead of OfType

    Home home = Umbraco.ContentAtXPath("//home").Where(h => h is Home).Select(h => h as Home).First();

    And noticed while the content is loaded, when it checks if it's of the given type it always returns false even if during debug mode it shows that the h variable in Where is of the type generated by ModelsBuilder.

    Anyone that can help me with this issue?

    I can't reproduce this in 8.2.2, so I don't think it's something that's changed between versions. Which mode do you have ModelsBuilder in? I assume that ModelsBuilder is regenerating the class at some stage, so although h is of a type called Umbraco.Web.PublishedModels.Home or whatever, it's not actually the same type as the controller was compiled with.

    Can you compare typeof(Home).AssemblyQualifiedName and h.GetType().AssemblyQualifiedName?
