Dynamicproperties in a tree view

In a project I’m working on we need to view/change/delete some dynamic properties. You can say many things about the edit view of dynamic properties, but I guess most of the statements shouldn't be quoted.

I put some code together that shows one property, and what value it has in a tree view. The code is pretty ugly thou :)

You can select from a dropdown one dynamic property and then hit view. This will show all places where that property has value in a tree view. It’s then possible to mark elements and delete them, or even mark them and change all the marked to a specified value.


You have to check the confirm action to actually do the change or delete.

Some code

var list = DynamicProperty.ListTree()

gives a list over all dynamic properties. It is unique by propertyname and page link

if you have one DynamicProperty you can change it’s value and do a .Save() and it will be stored. if you add null as the value it will be deleted.

It’s also possible to set Override=true to change all child elements to use this one.

The code is available here
