This post shows you how you can get to the IPublishedContent item from a Content Pick Macro Parameter in Umbraco. It is a guest post by Nisreen Almasri from Sweden.

The scenario

I feel my question is silly and can be answered straightforward but after googling and searching here and there, discover that nothing is silly with Umbraco:)

I have a login form and many types of members, according to the type of member (which group he belongs to) must be forwarded to a specific page. and because we have a multi-language website so I can use hardcoded URLs because the name of the page varies.

to summarize that, I have all related pages as macro parameters (content picker) but I need to reach the node id for each to use this code


What I tried at first

I used this at the beginning

var urlDownload = Model.MacroParameters["urlDownload"];

But it returns the UDI, not the node ID, because my version of Umbraco has property value converters enabled.


The solution

Finally, the solution was using this piece of code:

var contDownload = Umbraco.TypedContent(urlDownload);

and I could reach the id easily...


Final code

Here is the whole code:

    var urlDownload = Model.MacroParameters["urlDownload"];
    var urlSale = Model.MacroParameters["urlSale"];
    var urlExport = Model.MacroParameters["urlExport"];
    var urlAD = Model.MacroParameters["urlAD"];
    var contDownload = Umbraco.TypedContent(urlDownload);     var contSale = Umbraco.TypedContent(urlSale);     var contExport = Umbraco.TypedContent(urlExport);     var contAD = Umbraco.TypedContent(urlAD);
    var currentMember = User.Identity.Name;
    var t = Roles.GetRolesForUser(currentMember).FirstOrDefault();
    if (Members.GetCurrentLoginStatus().IsLoggedIn && Request.UrlReferrer != null)     {         switch (t)         {             case "Download":                 Response.Redirect(library.NiceUrl(Convert.ToInt32(contDownload.Id)));                 break;             case "Sale":                 Response.Redirect(library.NiceUrl(Convert.ToInt32(contSale.Id)));                 break;             case "Exporting":                 Response.Redirect(library.NiceUrl(Convert.ToInt32(contExport.Id)));                 break;             default:                 Response.Redirect(library.NiceUrl(Convert.ToInt32(contAD.Id)));                 break;         }     } }
