    DocType properties update bug - Umbraco 6.0.5 MVC

    Hey guys,

    I am using uSitebuilder to aid automatic deployment process. Did some testing on latest build.

    Document type property attributes (name, description, tab name, type, etc..) update seems buggy. Some of them are updated, some not. Sometimes they get updated only on creation of new property, in this case change recognition code might be the case. 

    This is the biggest problem, everything else seems fine - no child properties pushing to parent, views are created automatically.

    My configuration:

    • Umbraco 6.0.5 MVC mode
    • uSiteBuilder Admin 2.1.1
    • uSiteBuilder compiled latest source from Stephen Rogers fork 
    Until this is fixed, any property update should be done by hand.

    Can you try the code on the 3.0.0 branch of the main tree - - and detail which properties exactly it is that aren't updating (do name, description etc never update?)

    Made more testing on latest build from . 

    Document type property attributes update behaviour is really strange, can't think of any logical explanation for that without knowing implementation details.

    This is testing report with detailed steps:


    • -umbraco type
    • -custom type
    • -name
    • -tabname


    • Copy of live 6.0.5 MVC site with data
    • latest uSitebuilder with auto sync
    • latest uSitebuilder Admin
    • Created new doctype under existing one.
    • Created one property for each tested attribute.


    1. Update each of one-attribute properties on seperate builds/syncs:

    Changed umbraco type from TextString to TrueFalse, Numeric, TextBoxMultiple - not updated. [admin sync]

    Changed custom type from "User Picker" to non-existing, synced on admin, got error. Changed to "Widget picker" - not updated. After that, umbraco type property got updated to TextBoxMultiple . Recycled app pool - custom type got updated to "Widget picker" . 

    Changed umbraco type back to TextString. Recycled app pool. Umb type didn't update. Custom type changed back to "User Picker". Recycled app pool couple more times - no update. Custom type prop is still "User Picker".

    Changed property name. Recycled app pool. Name updated successfully. Umb type property became TextString. Custom type prop became "Widget picker".

    Changed tab name to "Images". Recycled app pool. Tab haven't got updated.

    Changed umb type from TextString to TextBoxMultiple. Recycled app pool. Type got updated. Recycled app pool. No changes.
