    Hi All ,

    Hope You are all fine, I have a requirement that i want to have a control which lists all the generic contents Category wise, means i pass an id and according to that id i have a category and from that category all the generic contents should be displayed. e.g

    Contents heading 1
                         
    Contents text and images.
    Contents heading 2
                         
    Contents text and images.

    I thought of the way that if i could access the generic contents in programmatic way i could do it. i wanted to ask is their a better way , or like a recommended way to do that and how if i am going in the right direction how do i get the Generic contents?????

    Thanks ,

    Regards,
    Adeel Arif

    Hi Adeel Arif,

    You could create a control that inherits from ContentView. Inside CreateChildControls() you could use ContentfilterBuilder to filter the items based on your
    criteria

    If you pass the category ID, get the Category Name from ICategory object and pass it to ContentFilterBuilder.

    If you pass the Content ID, you could call GetMetaData("Category") of IContent object and then conduct the filtering.

    Sincerely yours,
