Class RazorTyped

Namespace
Custom.Hybrid
Assembly
ToSic.Sxc.Dnn.Razor.dll

Base class for v16 Typed Razor files. Use it to create custom CS code in your App.

It provides the ServiceKit16 on property Kit which contains all the popular services to create amazing stuff.

[PublicApi]
public abstract class RazorTyped : RazorComponentBase, IHasLog, IHasCodeContext
Inheritance
RazorTyped
Implements

Remarks

Important: This is very different from Razor12 or Razor14, as it doesn't rely on dynamic code. Be aware of this since the APIs are very different - see Typed Code.

Properties

AllResources

Stack of all Resources in the System, merging Resources of View, App, Site, Global etc. Will retrieve values by priority, with View-Resources being top priority and Preset-Resources being the lowest.

Tip

If you know that Resources come from the App, you should prefer App.Resources instead. That is faster and helps people reading your code figure out where to change a value.

public ITypedStack AllResources { get; }

Property Value

ITypedStack

AllSettings

Stack of all Settings in the System, merging Settings of View, App, Site, Global etc. Will retrieve values by priority, with View-Settings being top priority and Preset-Settings being the lowest.

Tip

If you know that Settings come from the App, you should prefer App.Settings instead. That is faster and helps people reading your code figure out where to change a value.

public ITypedStack AllSettings { get; }

Property Value

ITypedStack

App

The current App object (with strictly typed Settings/Resources). Use it to access App properties such as Path or any data in the App.

public IAppTyped App { get; }

Property Value

IAppTyped

Html

Helper for Html.Raw - for creating raw html output which doesn't encode > and <. Also has helpers such as .Partial(...)

public override IHtmlHelper Html { get; }

Property Value

IHtmlHelper

Kit

public ServiceKit16 Kit { get; }

Property Value

ServiceKit16

Link helper object to create the correct links

public ILinkService Link { get; }

Property Value

ILinkService

A ILinkService object.

Log

The logger for the current Razor / WebApi which allows you to add logs to Insights.

public override ICodeLog Log { get; }

Property Value

ICodeLog

MyContext

This Context tells you about the environment, such as

  • the current User
  • the Page
  • the View
  • the Site

It's supposed to replace direct access to Dnn or Oqtane object in Razor and WebAPI code, allowing hybrid code that works everywhere.

public ICmsContext MyContext { get; }

Property Value

ICmsContext

Remarks

New in v11.11

MyData

All the data which the current Template received, based on the View configuration. There are a few common scenarios:

  1. If it's a simple view, then this will just contain streams with the main Item(s) and Header
  2. If the view expects no data, it will just contain a Default stream containing no items
  3. If the view has a Query behind it, then MyData will have all the streams provided by the Query
public IBlockInstance MyData { get; }

Property Value

IBlockInstance

MyHeader

The Header-Item belonging to this Template/Module. This data is edited by the user directly on this specific module. In some cases it can also be a pre-set item configured in the View to be used if the user has not added any data himself.

public ITypedItem MyHeader { get; }

Property Value

ITypedItem

MyItem

The main Item belonging to this Template/Module. This data is edited by the user directly on this specific module. In some cases it can also be a pre-set item configured in the View to be used if the user has not added any data himself.

If this view can have a list of items (more than one) then this contains the first item. To get all the items, see MyItems

public ITypedItem MyItem { get; }

Property Value

ITypedItem

MyItems

List of all Items belonging to this Template/Module. This data is edited by the user directly on this specific module. In some cases it can also be a pre-set item configured in the View to be used if the user has not added any data himself.

If this view is configured to only have one item, then this list will only contain one item. Otherwise it will have as many items as the editor added.

public IEnumerable<ITypedItem> MyItems { get; }

Property Value

IEnumerable<ITypedItem>

MyModel

Data passed to this Razor template by a caller. This is typical for Razor components which are re-used, and called from other Razor templates using @Html.Partial("filename.cshtml", new { thing = 7 }).

public ITypedModel MyModel { get; }

Property Value

ITypedModel

MyPage

Information about the current Page (called Tab in DNN). It's especially useful to get current URL Parameters.

public ICmsPage MyPage { get; }

Property Value

ICmsPage

MyUser

Information about the current user. It's especially useful to see if the user has any kind of Admin privileges.

public ICmsUser MyUser { get; }

Property Value

ICmsUser

MyView

View-information such as the view Name, Identity or Edition.

public ICmsView MyView { get; }

Property Value

ICmsView

Remarks

New in v12.02

UniqueKey

A unique, random key for the current module. It's recommended for giving DOM elements a unique id for scripts to then access them.

It's generated for every content-block, and more reliable than Module.Id since that sometimes results in duplicate keys, if the many blocks are used inside each other.

It's generated using a GUID and converted/shortened. In the current version it's 8 characters long, so it has 10^14 combinations, making collisions extremely unlikely. (currently 8 characters)

Tip

To get a unique key which is based on additional objects such as Entities, use the UniqueKeyWith(params object[]) method.

public string UniqueKey { get; }

Property Value

string

Remarks

If you get a fresh IKeyService it will also create a new UniqueKey. So your code should usually use the built-in property UniqueKey which comes from the shared ServiceKit Key.

Methods

AsEntity(ICanBeEntity)

Unwraps a dynamic entity or ITypedItem back into the underlying IEntity

public IEntity AsEntity(ICanBeEntity thing)

Parameters

thing ICanBeEntity

Returns

IEntity

A normal IEntity

AsItem(object, NoParamOrder, bool?, bool?)

Convert something to a ITypedItem. This works for all kinds of IEntitys, IDynamicEntitys as well as Lists/IEnumerables of those.

Will always return a single item. If a list is provided, it will return the first item in the list. If null was provided, it will return null.

public ITypedItem AsItem(object data, NoParamOrder noParamOrder = default, bool? propsRequired = null, bool? mock = null)

Parameters

data object

An original object which can be converted to a TypedItem, such as a IEntity .

noParamOrder NoParamOrder

see Convention: Named Parameters

propsRequired bool?

make the resulting object strict, default true

mock bool?

Specify that the data is fake/mock data, which should pretend to be an Item. Default is false

Returns

ITypedItem

Remarks

New in v16.02

AsItems(object, NoParamOrder, bool?)

Convert an object containing a list of Entities or similar to a list of ITypedItems.

public IEnumerable<ITypedItem> AsItems(object list, NoParamOrder noParamOrder = default, bool? propsRequired = null)

Parameters

list object

The original list which is usually a list of IEntity objects.

noParamOrder NoParamOrder

see Convention: Named Parameters

propsRequired bool?

make the resulting object strict, default true

Returns

IEnumerable<ITypedItem>

Remarks

New in v16.01

AsStack(params object[])

Create a typed object which will provide all the properties of the things wrapped inside it. The priority is first-object first, so if multiple items have the property, the first in the list will be returned.

public ITypedStack AsStack(params object[] items)

Parameters

items object[]

Returns

ITypedStack

AsTyped(object, NoParamOrder, bool?)

Creates a typed object to read the original passed into this function. This is usually used to process objects which the compiler can't know, such as anonymous objects returned from helper code etc.

If you have an array of such objects, use AsTypedList(object, NoParamOrder, bool?).

public ITyped AsTyped(object original, NoParamOrder noParamOrder = default, bool? propsRequired = null)

Parameters

original object
noParamOrder NoParamOrder

see Convention: Named Parameters

propsRequired bool?

make the resulting object strict, default true

Returns

ITyped

AsTypedList(object, NoParamOrder, bool?)

Create a list

public IEnumerable<ITyped> AsTypedList(object list, NoParamOrder noParamOrder = default, bool? propsRequired = null)

Parameters

list object

List/Enumerable object containing a bunch of items to make typed

noParamOrder NoParamOrder

see Convention: Named Parameters

propsRequired bool?

make the resulting object strict, default true

Returns

IEnumerable<ITyped>

GetCode(string, NoParamOrder, string)

Create an instance of a class in a .cs code file. Note that the class name in the file must match the file name, so MyHelpers.cs must have a MyHelpers class.

public dynamic GetCode(string path, NoParamOrder noParamOrder = default, string className = null)

Parameters

path string

The path, like Helper.cs, ./helper.cs, ../../Helper.cs or /SomeFolderInApp/Helper.cs (new 16.05)

noParamOrder NoParamOrder

see Convention: Named Parameters

className string

Optional class name, if it doesn't match the file name (new 16.03)

Returns

dynamic

,

Remarks

  • Created in 16.02
  • className added in 16.03
  • Ability to give a path beginning with / as app-root in 16.05

In older code there was a similar CreateInstance method

GetService<TService>()

Get a service from the Dependency Injection. The service can come from 2sxc, EAV or the underlying platform (Dnn, Oqtane).

public TService GetService<TService>() where TService : class

Returns

TService

An object of the type or interface requested, or null if not found in the DI.

Type Parameters

TService

Interface (preferred) or Class which is needed
