I wonder if DTGE with Umbraco 8.5.3 works properly with Nested Content Type? Can't find any information about this.. So I will try to explain this as good as possible..
I wanted to create a Bootstrap Carousel or a Slider with Nested Content. I thought it could be done in the same way with Umbraco 7 Nested Content but with no luck..
I followed up the same way as before.. I started to build a Document Type named Slider Item with the setting "Is an Element type".
This DocType is connected to a Nested Content property named Slider Item. That Slider Item type has 3 options, Title, Image and Link.
After that, I added one Document Type named Slider who holds the Nested Content item together. That one will then be added into a Grid Layout with DTGE. As far as now this works good, the DTGE reads the Nested Content Type correct. But the issue is that I only can add 1 item..
The "Add Content" button does not show up when I have added the Slider Doc Type into the Grid Layout as in Umbraco 7. In the Nested Content I have a minimum of 0 items and a maximum of 12 items.
Here are some pictures that explains it more detailed..
The Slider Item Property:
The Nested Content Property:
Then Slider Document type that holds the Nested Content Property:
Here is the DTGE options in the config file grid.editors.config.js :
Here is the Slider Type showing up correctly in the Grid Layout when adding content:
And at last.. The issue, where the "Add Content" button I thought should be:
So the main question is, do DTGE supports a list of items with Nested Content property in the Grid Layout?
I've finally solved this and I can now Add Content inside the Document Type.
I found this great documentation by Alan Mitchell https://this.isfluent.com/blog/2019/an-umbraco-8-recipe-nested-content-in-a-grid-tutorial after some deep research. He mentioned that the Document Type that holds the Nested Content property, in this case the (Slider) also have to be an Element Type aswell - in order to make Nested Content work like it should.
So both the Slider item and the Slider Document Type needs to be an Element Type.
Very confusing and I agree with Alan as he says that there isn't any handy link to a documentation about this Element Type switch. It should be in the description for this awesome plugin in case someone gets stuck!
This is exactly how I had it setup, but struggling to get it to render anything, I get a error:
Umbraco.Web.Mvc.ModelBindingException: Cannot bind source type Our.Umbraco.DocTypeGridEditor.Models.DetachedPublishedElement to model type Umbraco.Core.Models.PublishedContent.IPublishedContent.
var items = Model.Value<IEnumerable<IPublishedElement>>("slider");
@foreach (var item in items)
I have modelsbuilder turned off. I have the slider.cshtml in the partials/grid/editors/DocTypeGridEditor/ folder, and running 8.6.3 .
Do you have a code snippet for how you got it to render items?
