    Nested Content Picker

    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 it's like the content picker, but picks from the nested content values?

    Hope that makes sense?

    Hi Chris,

    Yes, makes sense.

    But to my knowledge, there isn't a property-editor that currently does that.

    Cheers, Lee

    This is not possible. If you want those values to be selectable it's better to use subnodes in the tree.

    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?

    Hi Chris,

    Could you explain how you achieved this in the end?

    Hi all,

    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

    Hi Tan

    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 :)
