    Add image to DAMP datatype using API

    I have DAMP property on my doctype the data is stored as xml.  How do I go about adding an existing image in the media section the document using Umbraco api?

    Regards

    Ismail

    Hello,

    There aren't any real samples for this, but there might be some usefull things in the source code.

    In DigibizAdvancedMediaPicker.ascx.cs there is method called GetXML() and GetMediaElements(string id). These are the methods which will store the selected images as media xml.

    In DAMP_ApplicationBase.cs there is a method called UpdateDAMP(Media media, bool deleteMediaItem). This method makes sure if you update an image in the media section it also gets updated on the documents which store the media xml.

    So hopefully you can use this code to add an existing image.

    Just a quick note. The GetMediaElements(string id) method from my first suggestion has changed since DAMP 1.0. First I used library.GetMedia, but I changed it in DAMP 2.0 because I had some problems: 

    http://umbraco.codeplex.com/workitem/30234
    http://umbraco.codeplex.com/workitem/30235

    So in DAMP 2.0 I get the xml directly from the cmsContentXml table which solved it. If you want to create a fieldadaptor I suggest you use the code from DAMP 2.0, but I just wanted to let you know that DAMP 1.0 is different.

    Hi Ismail,

    Did you succeeded in creating a fieldadaptor for cmsimport using my samples?
