I am trying to display field name using Glass Mapper in view rendering in following format:

    FieldName - FieldValue
    FieldName - FieldValue


  • Country - USA

  • City - New York

I can pull FieldValue from Model using GlassMapper but is there a possibility to fetch FieldName using GlassMapper or do I need to settle with Dictionary items to display in place of FieldNames

Thanks Shiva

It depends how you configure field names matching to class properties. If you do it using attribute, e.g.:

[SitecoreField(FieldName = "__Sortorder")]
public virtual int SortOrder { get; set; }

Then you can get field name by accessing to attribute:

var attribute = (SitecoreFieldAttribute) Attribute.GetCustomAttribute(Model, typeof (SitecoreFieldAttribute));
var fieldName = attribute.FieldName;

If you have auto mapping then filed name property will correspond to it's name.

  • Thanks for the response, This is my how my model looks like. I am still not clear how can I use the field name in view rendering. [SitecoreType(AutoMap = true)] public class LegalEntity : ContentBase {/// <summary> /// Continent /// </summary> public virtual string Continent { get; set; } } }

  • In that case your field name is Continent :-) Why do you need some code to get it?

  • I don't want to hardcode the field name. I am able to get field value using @Model.Continent but I am trying to get field name as well in the format mentioned in question [I need to display field name here] - Model.Continet

    I am not sure what are your requirements but sounds like that maybe you want something like this (or a variant of this): jammykam.wordpress.com/2017/09/20/show-title-when-blank Commented May 28, 2018 at 15:39
