    I am trying to get the Product Type of each Product within the context of a list of all Orders. I am currently binding all Orders to a RadGrid for reporting purposes. Below is a snippet which hopefully shows what I am trying to acheive:

    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)

                //Store Orders in "orderList" then bind it to RadGrid.
                var orderList = new List<OrderReportView>();

                OrdersManager ordersManager = OrdersManager.GetManager();
                IQueryable<Order> orders = ordersManager.GetOrders();

                foreach (Order order in orders)

                    var theOrder = new OrderReportView();

                    theOrder.OrderNumber = order.OrderNumber;
                    theOrder.OrderDate = order.OrderDate;
                    theOrder.OrderStatus = order.OrderStatus;
                    theOrder.Total = order.Total;

                    //Assume only 1 Product per Order.
                    theOrder.Title = order.Details[0].Title;
                    //NOW SOMETHING LIKE THIS BELOW??
                    theOrder.ProductType = order.Details[0].ProductTypeName; //eg. "Book"



                RadGrid1.DataSource = orderList;


    Any help would be appreciated.

    Hello Gavin,

     You will have to match the product clrtype to the product type clrtype. I do this in my Product model I use when I want to cut our certain data from being returned (for example in the case of custom web api or auto generated reports).

    namespace SitefinityWebApp.Data.Models
        public class ProductModel
            public Guid Id { get; set; }
            public string ProductType { get; set; }
            public string Title { get; set; }
            public ProductModel() { }
            public ProductModel(Product product)
                var em = EcommerceManager.GetManager();
                this.Id = product.Id;
                this.Title = product.Title;
                this.ProductType = em.GetProductTypes().Where(pt => pt.ClrType == product.ClrType).FirstOrDefault().Title;

    I hope this helps.
