I have a checklist with value(a,b,c,d) in the items.

In the rendering variant template how can I check If 'a' is checked? I am using Sitecore 9.2

  • Could you please add more details regarding where you are trying to verify the checked item and how are you displaying the checklist? Mar 8, 2021 at 8:20

Note that NVelocity is removed in version 9.3 so if you have other options you might want to use those.

But to answer your question, you could do something like this:

#set ($checks = $item.Fields.get_Item("YourCheckListField").ToString)
#if ($checks.contains("THE-GUID-OF-THE-ITEM-A"))
... do your stuff

This gets the value from the field, which will be the raw value so the '|' delimited string of guids (in capitals). You can check if the guid of your "A" item is in there.

  • I tested like #set ($checks = $item.Fields.get_Item("Zoning").ToString()) $checks it came always $checks instead of value Mar 8, 2021 at 9:48
  • Can you edit the question with what you are doing? I tested the code above in a 9.2 and that works.
