Data Type Definition Example

Content Example

MVC View Example


Without Modelsbuilder

@if (Model.HasValue("colorTheme"))
    var value = Model.Value("colorTheme");

With Modelsbuilder

@if (Model.ColorTheme != null)
    var value = Model.ColorTheme;

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 'colorTheme'
    content.SetValue("colorTheme", "water");
    // 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:

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