    I am wondering if anybody out there has attempted to create a download list grouped by Category.

    Exactly like asked for here actually http://www.sitefinity.com/devnet/forums/sitefinity-3-x/developing-with-sitefinity/downloadlist-group-by-category.aspx  ... only on the new system.  This would be really useful to me and I wondered if it was possible functionality to be either built into the control (along with sorting that works) or some code that could help me out.

    I would like to be able to group the list like

    Category 1:
       - file 1
       - file 2
    Category 2:
      - file 3
    Category 4:
      - file 4


    The post above is great an all but it is obviously using the old Sitefinity so the API is completely different.  If someone could point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated.

    Hello James Greaves,

    You should create a custom control which will display the desired output. You can use the Documents API to query the documents and then group them by their categories. You can get the IDs of categories for each document by using the bellow code:
    IList categoryIds = document.GetValue<IList>("Category");
