AutoProperty Datatype


AutoProperty is a package for Umbraco 4 that takes values from the property that you are editing and displays them in an autocomplete textbox. 

This is good if you have many nodes of the same type that will be filled with "same" content. For example a product list where some properties will be same as other products.

Package is tested and working for:

-Umbraco 4.5.2


-.net 3.5

-You'll have to allow HttpGet in webServices-section in web.config to allow the webservice to be called with jquery.get()



        <add name="HttpGet" />




For the datatype you can specify

-Database datatype : Umbraco standard

-Start node : If you want a special start node in content for special datatype. This will take all children and grandchildern's properties.

If left empty it will take the current node's siblings property values.

-Document Type Alias : Limit to only one document typa alias, to get more relevant data.

If left empty it will take all iterated nodes property value
