Set Pages form field in MVC

James Mosquito asked on April 7, 2021 14:20


I have added a Pages form field on one of my page types and would like to add pages to it from MVC.

Can anyone direct me to an example of how to do this please.

Thanks, James

Hi James,

Try the following code and see if it works:

var pageType = DataClassInfoProvider.GetDataClassInfo("custom.PageTypeName");
var pagesField = new DataDefinition(pageType.ClassFormDefinition)
    .FirstOrDefault(x => x.Name == "YourPagesFieldName");
var relationshipName = RelationshipNameInfoProvider.GetAdHocRelationshipNameCodeName("custom.PageTypeName", pagesField);
var relationshipNameInfo = RelationshipNameInfo.Provider.Get(relationshipName);

RelationshipInfo.Provider.Add(currentPageNodeId, newRelatedPageNodeId, relationshipNameInfo.RelationshipNameId);

Thanks Dmitry,

I should have pointed out that I am using Kentico 12SP and the methods to add a page are slightly different but I was able to work it from your example and the relevant API documentation:
