Daniel, thanks for the reply.
Your code looks like it gets the current page node and then allows me to get the properties of the page. That's fine if I want something like the 'title' or 'owner' which are page fields but what I'm looking for the is the dynamic content type item that is rendered on the page via the dynamic content type widget.
As an example, I have a 'regions' page. My site has a dynamicmodule with a content type 'regions'. I've placed the dynamic regions widget onto the regions page. The widget is set to initially show all published regions in a list and then redirect to the same page with /europe & /asia etc to show the full detail view of that single region.
When visting the single region view of the 'regions' page for say 'Europe' I'd like to get the 'Europe' dynamiccontent item in the code behind of a user control on the page. I'd then examine the properties of the 'Europe' instance and do something with the property values such as rendering its associated images.
Does that help explain the problem I have more clearly?
