Alias: Umbraco.Label

Returns: String

Label is a non-editable control and can only be used to display a pre-set value.

Data Type Definition Example

Value type

If you want to set a value other than a String, you can define the data using one of the other available Data Types. These include Decimal, Date/time, Time, Integer, and Big integer.

There is also a Value Type: Long string if you need to set a long string value for your Label.

Content Example

MVC View Example

Without ModelsBuilder

    if (Model.HasValue("pageLabel")){

With ModelsBuilder

    if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(Model.PageLabel))

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;
	// 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 'pageLabel'. 
	content.SetValue("pageLabel", "A pre-set string value");

	// 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

    // Set the value of the property with alias 'pageLabel'
     content.SetValue(Home.GetModelPropertyType(_publishedSnapshotAccessor, x => x.MyLabel).Alias, "A Preset string");
