U4-2045 - Issue U4-1300 seems to be un-fixed in 4.11.6

Relates to: U4-1300

Matt raised an issue wherby using Umbraco.TypedContent on an ID that was unpublished or in the recycle bin would cause a YSOD. This is down as fixed, however, in 4.11.6, it's displaying the same behaviour. To replicate, call Umbraco.TypedContent() on an id of something that's unpublished.

I haven't been able to test this on v6 yet, but the same issue may be present there as well.

Please can this be re-fixed ASAP, as it means anything using the MNTP can easily be broken by un-publishing something that's been selected.

This is an issue in 4.11.5 as well

FYI: This wasn't un-fixed but only implemented for v6. I'll see if we can backport the changes though.

While I can't actually reproduce the problem (please post a snippet of your View so I can try it out), Shannon has copied over the fix for U4-1300 so it should be fixed in 4.11.7.

For what it's worth, the following seems to work fine, even if node 1050 is not published or does not exist.

@inherits Umbraco.Web.Mvc.UmbracoTemplatePage @

//Returns True, not a YSOD @(Umbraco.TypedContent(1050) == null)

I'll leave this open until I can verify the result with an actual code sample. Thanks!

Sebastiaan, this will ysod. It's just a snippet so not a full example. I've additional checks to make sure that there are some nodes selected, and when passing in some ids, one of which is in the recycle bin, then I get a ysod. people is an mntp with data stored as csv.

Hope this helps


var people = Umbraco.Field("people").ToString().Split(','); @foreach (var person in people) { var item = Umbraco.TypedContent(person); //ysod is one of the content item is in the recycle bin //do stuff }

Thanks for the example, that helps a lot!

This is my current view, which works in 4.11.7 now (one of the nodes in the people list is in the recycle bin):

@inherits Umbraco.Web.Mvc.UmbracoTemplatePage @

@foreach (var person in people) { var item = Umbraco.TypedContent(person); if(item != null) { @item.Name
} }

In 4.11.6 this would throw an error:

Cannot implicitly convert type 'Umbraco.Core.Dynamics.DynamicNull' to 'Umbraco.Core.Models.IPublishedContent'. An explicit conversion exists (are you missing a cast?)
