Is there a data type that allows the editor to pick content from a nested content property.
For example, I have created a nested content property that uses a doc type called Category, which has two text properties.
I then want the content editor to pick one of those categories on another doc type.....so it's like the content picker, but picks from the nested content values?
Hope that makes sense?
Yes, makes sense.
But to my knowledge, there isn't a property-editor that currently does that.
This is not possible. If you want those values to be selectable it's better to use subnodes in the tree.
It is possible. I’m almost complete with a nested content picket right now.
Just a thought, but how about using a DotNet picker from nuPickers to parse the NestedContent data ?
Interesting....that could work, is contextId the current Umbraco node id?
Thanks Hendy, this is just what I needed
Could you explain how you achieved this in the end?
I'm also interested in this, if you are willing to share - TIA :-)
Is there any plan for Nested Content Picker in V8? We need this solution, sometime we can not move nested item to become a child node for picking
You could probably make something work with Contentment and its Data List editor. You would then need to extend it with your own data source for getting the items.
Since Contentment is not released yet, you would need to build it yourself too :)
Hi Søren Kottal,
Thanks for your information,
We will investigate more to implement Nested Content Picker
I’m currently working on my take of nested content picker; I’ve wanted one for a few years. It’s coming along great!! It’s taken me all of 2 days to knock out most of the work. I’m not going to return an IPublishedContent, you’d loose reference to it’s origin. Instead, I’ve built a NestedContentModel that has the origin values (contentId, propertyAlias, Key) which can easily be used to look up the IPublishedContent from its original location. I’ll be releasing in the coming month or so.
Sounds very interesting! It's just what I need for my V8 project.
If you need someone to test it, just let me know.
Totally. It’s fully working for top level NC; I’m working on going deeper and have NC that’s inside top level NC to also be selectable.
Could you send me what you have so far? I would like to test it out.
is working on a reply...
