How to Check Visitor Group Criteria In Code

If you want to check if a contentAreaItem is match current user all visitor group criteria you can use the following Methods:

  public static bool IsMatchCriteria(ContentAreaItem contentAreaItem)
            var result = true;
            contentAreaItem.AllowedRoles.ForEach(role =>
                    result = result && IsMatchCriteria(role);
            return result;

        public static bool IsMatchCriteria(string guid)
            var visitorGroupGuidId = new Guid(guid);
            var visitorGroupRepository = ServiceLocator.Current.GetInstance<IVisitorGroupRepository>();
            var user = HttpContext.Current.User;

            var vgHelper = new VisitorGroupHelper();
            var visitorGroup = visitorGroupRepository.Load(visitorGroupGuidId);
            return vgHelper.IsPrincipalInGroup(user, visitorGroup.Name);

Great job mate!

just my 2 cent here:

a) why not convert "role" from IsMatchCriteria method to Guid already and pass in that, instead of convert string to Guid?

b) I would try to avoid using ServiceLocator in this context, but instead - would require from "above" - somebody has to inject that dependency in order to test for visitor group match.
