count Product underneath a category

mojtaba kavand asked on May 30, 2014 02:15

Hi there,

is there any predefine macro method or something to count products underneath top level categories

e.g. CatA-->CatB-->CatC

I want to retrieve all products underneath catA which is including all products underneath catB and catC

Hi Mojtaba

I see. Unfortunately there is no such macro in Kentico. The only two solution in this case is to develop a Custom Macro Method, which will recursively add up values of CategoryCount column for all of the category children.

Hi Mojtaba

There is no native method which could do this. While you can return number of all documents in the sub-tree, like this:

{% CurrentDocument.AllChildren.Count #%}

The AllChildren object does not support filtering, so categories would be counted in the result.

The only solution in this case is to create and register a Custom Macro Method, and calculate number of child nodes which represent a product using the API.

Examples of how to retrieve a DataSet of documents based on a where condition can be found in the API Examples module, which is part of a Kentico installation
