Repeater - Get parent document fields

Andy Boot asked on June 4, 2014 08:23

Hi there,

I'm hoping this will be an easy answer.

My current structure:


Document Types:

Venue - CMS.Event
Date1/Date2 - CMS.BookingEvent

My Events page contains a repeater targeting the CMS.BookingEvent doctype where it is looping and retrieving records/documents in a list from an ASCX transformation.

My objective: Upon displaying the CMS.BookingEvent (Date1 or Date2) fields, also inherit the CMS.Event fields (Venue) so I can show the venue location side by side with the event dates. Note, there may be multiple venues and dates than in the above example structure.

If anybody can help that would be much appreciated.

Many Thanks,

Sounds like a perfect opportunity to use content inheritance.

Hi there, My Events template already has content inheritance set up, however I'm unable to figure out how to display the field data from the inherited documents within my repeaters transformation.

Here's my transformation displaying the CMS.BookingEvent document type:

<div class="eventTile">
<h3><%# Eval("EventName") %><br/><strong><%# getDayWithSuffix(Eval<DateTime>("EventDate")) + GetDateTime("EventDate"," MMMM") %></strong></h3>
<span><strong>Location: </strong><%# Eval("EventLocation") %></span>
<span><strong>Time: </strong> <%# Eval("EventTimeStart") %></span>

Note: EventName is a field from the CMS.Event doucment type

Thanks, Andy
