Razor: Rendering Content-Blocks

When using Inner Content the linked content-blocks (apps or pieces of content) must be rendered into the template. Here's how to do it in Razor.

How to use

There are two common use cases

  1. Virtual Panes at item level - in this case, the item has it's own pane for placing apps and content-blocks
  2. Very Rich Text - where you add content-blocks and apps in the WYSIWYG

Item-Level Virtual Panes

Here's a quick example which renders an area with all content-blocks:

@ToSic.Sxc.Block.Render.All(Content, field: "InnerContent")

This example creates the area for the content-blocks (important so that the UI appears for editors to add more blocks) and renders all existing content-blocks in the predefined order into that area.

Here's a more manual example of doing the same thing, but done manually to demonstrate what happens and to allow myself to add more css-classes:

<div class="some-class sc-content-block-list" @Edit.ContextAttributes(post, field: "DesignedContent")>
    @foreach(var cb in @post.DesignedContent) {

If you care about doing it manually, read more about the Edit object.

Very Rich Text / Inner-Content

Here's an example how to merge content-blocks with a html-text which has placeholders for each content-block, allowing a mix of text/apps.

@ToSic.Sxc.Blocks.Render.All(post, field: "WysiwygContent", merge: post.Body)

There is a new parameter merge, where you fill in your WYSIWYG-field that contains the content-block(s).

Here is a blog tutorial on implementing Very Rich Text.
