U4-10984 - Dropdownlis in Nested Content; cannot use chosen value in "Template"

Created by Olivier Casteleyn 19 Feb 2018, 12:59:47 Updated by Ronald Barendse 13 Mar 2018, 11:19:55

  1. Create a document type.
  2. Create a nested content property with a dropdownlist in it, populate it with some values.
  3. Create an instance of the document type
  4. Create a nested item
  5. Pick a value in the dropdown
  6. Save the item

What did you expect to happen? -> I want the chosen value displayed in the template of the nested content What actually happened? -> The ID of the chosen value of the dropdownlist is displayed

The same problem if you use a picked content node in nestedcontent. It seems like you can not use the name of the node in the template.

@oc@novado.be You can lookup the node name using an Angular filter: https://github.com/umbraco/Umbraco-CMS/blob/dev-v7/src/Umbraco.Web.UI.Client/src/common/filters/nestedcontent.filter.js.

The same could probably also be done with the pre values, e.g. by adding a ncPreValue filter...
