I'm trying to créate a carousel and i have a PlayerCard model that will work as a slide for my carousel. Then i have an interface ICarousel that has the main fields of the carousel and a PlayersCarousel that will implement the interface.

Something like this:

[SitecoreType(TemplateId = "{5B0B5442-D005-49A1-84DD-56788DCCD315}")]
    public class PlayersCarousel : SitecoreGlassMap<ICarouselV2>
        public virtual IEnumerable<PlayerCard> Items { get; set; }
        public override void Configure()
            Map(x=> x.AutoMap());

    public interface ICarouselV2
        string BackgroundColor { get; set; }
        bool IsArrowHidden { get; set; }
        bool IsBulletHidden { get; set; }
        int AnimationTime { get; set; }
        int ItemsPerSlide { get; set; }

Now, the PlayerCard is an ítem on sitecore that is mapped to a view rendering (named Player Card). The razor view PlayersCarousel.cshtml will have this:

@inherits GlassView<PlayersCarousel>
@using ConexioFC.Models

@*------ I don't know what goes here--------*@

My question is how do i map the Ítems property of PlayersCarousel with the view rendering Player Card?

I'm using Glass.Mapper v4 with all this.

I am assuming that you are looking for a way of mapping sub-items of a particular parent in the tree. You can use Sitecore query for mapping your Items property:

[SitecoreQuery("./*[@@templateid='tid']", IsRelative = true)]
public virtual IEnumerable<PlayerCard> Items { get; set; }

Please, check this Glass tutorial for more details: http://www.glass.lu/Blog/GettingChildItems


You can iterate though your items in the view like that:

<div class="my-component">
    @foreach(var item in Model.Items)
        <div class="component-item-body">
  • I know how to map child items but i don't know how to use those child items on the parent razor view and represent the child view render on the razor view

    So model.Items does not give you a iEnumerable list?

  • Yes... Model.Items does give a IEnumerable list, what i'm asking is how to write the code on the cshtml razor view to output the corresponding view rendering of each item of the Model.Items list

  • I know that i can iterate over the Items... but how do i associate the viewrender on sitecore with each item...? that's my main question.
