EPiImage 2.5 Released

The focus in this release have been on adding better Page Type Builder support. EPiImageProperty.Value now returns EPiImagePropertyData and EPiImageGalleryProperty.Value now returns EPiImageGalleryImageCollection.

 

Adding an EPiImageProperty to a Page Type Builder page

[PageTypeProperty(EditCaption = "Main image", Type = typeof(EPiImageProperty))]
public virtual EPiImagePropertyData MainImage
{
    get; set;
}

 

You can access the property directly:

Image url: <%=CurrentPage.MainImage.ImageUrl%>
Image description: <%=CurrentPage.MainImage.ImageDescription%>

 

Adding an EPiImageGalleryProperty to a Page Type Builder page

[PageTypeProperty(EditCaption = "Image gallery", Type = typeof(EPiImageGalleryProperty))]
public virtual EPiImageGalleryImageCollection ImageGallery
{
    get;
    set;
}

 

You can access the property directly:

<%
foreach (EPiImageGalleryImage Image in CurrentPage.ImageGallery)
{
  %>
  Image Url: <%= Image.ImageURL %><br />
  Link Url: <%= Image.LinkURL %><br />
  Description: <%= Image.Description %><br />
  <%
}
%>

 

You can read more about using EPiImage and PTB together in the blog post Using EPiImage with Page Type Builder (PTB)

 

Fixed PageLink bug in EPiImageResizer

There was a bug in the EPiImageResizer that would give you an error if you had set the PageLink attribute. It has now been fixed.

So if you have a collection of pages of the type Article that each has an EPiImageProperty called Image, you can list them out like this:

 

<EPiServer:PageList ID="list" PageLink="<%# CurrentPage.PageLink %>" runat="server">
<ItemTemplate>
<EPiServer:Property PropertyName="PageName" ID="name" runat="server" /><br />
<EPiImage:EPiImageResizer ID="image" PropertyName="Image" 
        PageLink="<%# Container.CurrentPage.PageLink %>" runat="server" /><br />
</ItemTemplate>
</EPiServer:PageList>
