    Pulling in 8 products which have a custom checkbox which is TRUE

    Hi all,

    I'm trying to pull in all of my merchello products WHERE bestSeller = true, does anybody have any ideas on how I can do this?

    Also any good beginner documentation for how search functionality works? I'm having a tough time getting what I need from the readme.io version.

    Cheers, Hayden

    Hi Hayden,

    You could try @if (Model.GetPropertyValue<bool>("bestSeller"))

    Or, you could create a collection for best sellers then use something similar to the example in FastTrack "Featured Products" to return the products

     @if (Model.FeaturedProducts.Any())
    { 
    <section id="categories">
            <div class="page-header">
                <h1>Featured Products</h1>
            </div>
            @foreach (var row in Model.FeaturedProducts.ToArray().Split(3))
            {
                <div class="row">
                    @foreach (var fp in row)
                    {
                        <div class="col-xs-4">
                            @Html.Partial("_ProductBox", fp)
                        </div>
                    }
                </div>
            }
    
        </section>

    To anybody who is wondering the same thing, I didn't realize there is data types that merchello created when I installed it.

    If you take a look at the featured products section within the tutorial below it will all make sense

    http://skrift.io/articles/archive/how-to-quickly-add-ecommerce-to-your-existing-website/

    Basically create a field within your home node "merchello product list view" -> go back to your home node and find your new field -> press the 'cog' in the top right and select which collection you want to put in, then you can display it on the homepage using something like this...

    @foreach (var fp in Model.Content.GetPropertyValue<IEnumerable<IProductContent>>("bestSellers").Take(8))
    {
        <div class="col-lg-3 col-md-4 col-sm-6">
            @Html.Partial("_ProductBox", fp)
        </div>
    }
    

    Yours will probably be slightly different but hope I've helped (check the tutorial above for more information!

    Cheers, Hayden
