Parent document info into a repeater

lawrence whittemore asked on April 24, 2015 14:40

Is it possible to get parent document info for the item that is being rendered in a transformation. I am using the calendar control and have events showing on it from multiple locations and would like the events parent name to show in the repeater so that the user of the site knows what section that event belongs to.

I'm in version 8

You can use this to get the current documents parent info:

<%# CurentDocument.Parent.DocumentName %>

Thanks. However, that will give me the current document's parent's name not the document that is being rendered in the repeater's parent's name.

I'm trying to do this on the calendar control and the items that are rendered on the calendar are not the currently selected item but items that live in separate sections in the tree all being pulled into one calendar.

You are correct! You can create a custom transformation method to do this, unless I'm forgetting something, probably the easiest thing to do. Using a macro you can do something like this although not sure it's available as a C# method.

{% Documents["/Path/To/Find"].Parent.DocumentName #%}

One thing I'd like to point out is, you may want to check the SQL debug to see how many SQL calls you are making by doing this.
