I have a project with Glass.Mapper v4 and i have a simple model class like this:

    public class Separator
        public virtual string Title { get; set; }
        public virtual string CssColorClass { get; set; }

And a razor view like this:

@model ConexioFC.Models.Separator

This is the separator
<h2 class="@Model.CssColorClass">@Model.Title</h2>

From Sitecore i have this templates:

enter image description here

Then i have a View Rendering like this: This view rendering has a parameters template pointing to the template previously shown. enter image description here

Then i have on the control properties of the page:

enter image description here

The problem is that when i go to the page preview the Model.CssColorClass and Model.Title are blank.

First of all is not recommended to put content like Title in the rendering paramenters.

@inherits Glass.Mapper.Sc.Web.Mvc.GlassView<ConexioFC.Models.Separator>

var parameters = GetRenderingParameters<ConexioFC.Models.RenderingParameters.Separator>();}

and you can to access parameters using @parameters.PropertyName

  • So this is the best approach to use with Glass.Mapper v4? because i though that this was for Glass.Mapper v3.x and with Glass.Mapper v4 was more easy to do (without using the GetRenderingParameters) like here glass.lu/Mapper/Sc/Tutorials/Tutorial2.

  • Link you send me now : is not for rendering params is for sitecore fields Commented Feb 3, 2017 at 14:04

That's because your rendering parameters aren't your viewmodel, the page item/datasource item is.

You can however get it as a viewmodel if you want, have a look at this blog post: https://visionsincode.wordpress.com/2016/08/26/map-your-rendering-parameters-to-your-glass-mapper-viewmodels-in-sitecore/

Or the default way of working with rendering parameters: http://www.glass.lu/mapper/sc/tutorials/tutorial23

@inherits Glass.Mapper.Sc.Web.Mvc.GlassView<ConexioFC.Models.Separator>

@{ var parameters = GetRenderingParameters<ConexioFC.Models.RenderingParameters.Separator>();}
