    Doc Type Grid Editor and Models Builder

    Has anyone had any luck getting Doc Type Grid Editor to work with Models Builder?

    When I render my page I get this stack trace:

    Umbraco.Web.Mvc.ModelBindingException: Cannot bind source content type Our.Umbraco.DocTypeGridEditor.Models.DetachedPublishedContent to model type Umbraco.Web.PublishedContentModels.DtgeLinkGrid.

    I saw some quick fixes at https://github.com/umco/umbraco-doc-type-grid-editor/issues/44 but I can't seem to get them working.

    My view:

    @inherits UmbracoViewPage<IPublishedContent>
    @if (Model != null)
    {
        // cast model as the correct ContentModel
        var model = new DtgeLinkGrid(Model);
    }

    What I did now as a workaround:

    @inherits Umbraco.Web.Mvc.UmbracoViewPage
    
    @{
       var viewModel = null;
       if(Model != null){
           var viewModel = new DTGEModel(Model);
       }
    }
    

    Since the constructor of the modelsbuilder modal needs IPublishedContent and the Model of DTGE is IPublishedContent it works lika a charm.

    My workaround generic class:

    public class GridViewPage<T> : UmbracoViewPage<IPublishedContent>
            where T : IPublishedContent
        {
            private T _model;
            protected new T Model => _model != null ? _model : (_model = (T) Activator.CreateInstance(typeof(T), base.Model));
    
            public override void Execute()
            {
            }
        }
    

    In partial view:

    @inherits GridViewPage<TextWithHeaderBlock>
    
    <h3>@Model.Header</h3>
    
    <p>@Model.Text</p>
