Alias: Umbraco.Decimal

Returns: decimal

Data Type Definition Example

In the example above the possible values for the input field would be [8, 8.5, 9, 9.5, 10]

All other values will be removed in the content editor when saving or publishing.

If the value of Step Size is not set then all decimal values between 8 and 10 is possible to input in the content editor.

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.

@inject IContentService Services;
@using Umbraco.Cms.Core.Services;
    // Get access to ContentService
    var contentService = Services;

    // Create a variable for the GUID of the page you want to update
    var guid = Guid.Parse("32e60db4-1283-4caa-9645-f2153f9888ef");

    // 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 'myDecimal'. 
    content.SetValue("myDecimal", 3);

    // Save the change

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:

@inject IPublishedSnapshotAccessor _publishedSnapshotAccessor;
@using Umbraco.Cms.Core.PublishedCache;
    // Set the value of the property with alias 'myDecimal'
    content.SetValue(Home.GetModelPropertyType(_publishedSnapshotAccessor, x => x.MyDecimal).Alias, 3);
