Add values programmatically

See the example below to see how a value can be added or changed programmatically. To update a value of a property editor you need the Content Service.

@using Umbraco.Cms.Core.Services;

@inject IContentService Services;
    // Get access to ContentService
    var contentService = Services;

    // Create a variable for the GUID of the page you want to update
    var guid = new Guid("796a8d5c-b7bb-46d9-bc57-ab834d0d1248");
    // Get the page using the GUID you've defined
    var content = contentService.GetById(guid); // ID of your page

    // Set the value of the property with alias 'memberGroup'. The value is the specific ID of the member group
    content.SetValue("memberGroup", 1067);
    // Save the change

You can also add multiple groups by creating a comma separated string with the desired member group IDs.

    // Set the value of the property with alias 'memberGroup'. 
    content.SetValue("memberGroup", "1067","1068");

Although the use of a GUID is preferable, you can also use the numeric ID to get the page:

    // Get the page using it's id
    var content = contentService.GetById(1234); 

If Modelsbuilder is enabled you can get the alias of the desired property without using a magic string:

@using Umbraco.Cms.Core.PublishedCache;
@using Umbraco.Cms.Core;

@inject IPublishedSnapshotAccessor _publishedSnapshotAccessor;
    // Set the value of the property with alias 'memberGroup'
    content.SetValue(Home.GetModelPropertyType(_publishedSnapshotAccessor, x => x.MemberGroup).Alias, 1067);
