    Identifying usage of uComponents

    I have just upgraded an Umbraco site from 6.x to 7.x that had uComponents installed. I understand uComponents is not compatible and will need to remove it. I've successfully removed the uComponents package. How can identify in my Umbraco site where uComponents was being utilized to change data types and controls?

    Hi David

    When you upgrade an Umbraco 6 site to Umbraco 7, the upgrade process tries to map any incompatible property editors from Umbraco 6 to known equivalents in Umbraco 7.

    For property editors that have no known equivalent the upgrade process will convert them to readonly Label Data Types.

    So if you look at each document type in turn you can see which properties are now Labels and these are the ones that will need updating with new equivalent packages (check out nuPickers for lots of equivalent uComponents editors in Umbraco 7)

    You could query the database directly to see a list of your property editors and their types: eg

    SELECT TOP 1000 cmsPropertyType.Alias as 'Property Alias' , cmsPropertyType.Alias as 'Property Name',  cmsContentType.alias as 'DocumentType',cmsPropertyTypeGroup.text as 'Tab',  umbracoNode.text as 'Data type'
      FROM [ppg-refinish].[dbo].[cmsPropertyType]
      Inner Join cmsContentType on cmsContentType.nodeId = cmsPropertyType.contentTypeId
      INNER JOIN cmsDataType ON cmsDataType.nodeId = cmsPropertyType.datatypeid
      INNER JOIN umbracoNode on = cmsDataType.nodeId
      INNER JOIN cmsPropertyTypeGroup on = cmsPropertyType.propertyTypeGroupId

    or you could install the package called 'Diplo GodMode'

    Which gives you a nice interface in the backoffice to find out about your Umbraco install, including a Document Type browser which will allow you to search for all Document Types that use a particular editor, eg Label!
