Hello, I'm new in the docentric world and c# programming. May I have your help please?

I'been reading this info https://www.docentric.com/documentation/examples/managing-code-behind help

It's says that we can populate unbound elements in the ElementInitializeEventHandler event, but the example use a instruccion comparing to an objet that I cant found the reference in my project with Docentric dll v5.1.26. the object instance is: InstanceModel.FieldElementInstance. Where is it?

The code is:

void dg_ElementInitializeEventHandler(object sender, ElementInitializeEventArgs e)
        {
            // Check if the current rendering element is the kind of Field element named as “AverageProductPrice” 

            if (e.Element is InstanceModel.FieldElementInstance &&
                ((InstanceModel.FieldElementInstance)e.Element).Name == "AverageProductPrice")
            {
                // Set the formatted value of the element 
                var products = DataAccess.GetProducts().Where(p => p.Category.Name == "Seasonings");
                ((InstanceModel.FieldElementInstance)e.Element).TextValue = products.Average(p => p.Price).ToString("n2");
            }            
        }

Thansk ind advance for your help.

Regards from Nicaragua.

Hi,

Thank for posting a question on this forum. You can find the types and all relevant namespaces in our documentation: https://www.docentric.com/documentation/programming/reference-guide

I'm sorry to tell you but the documentation is wrong. These types do not exist and this is why you didn't find them. Ujse the types from the following namespace instead: https://www.docentric.com/documentation/programming/reference-guide/docentric.documents.reporting.model

Please let me know if this helped and you made it work.

Since you are a newcomer, I would also recommend you to read the following blog article about choosing the right data source. Maybe this is something that might be useful for your project: https://www.docentric.com/blog/2016/01/28/choosing-the-right-kind-of-a-data-source/

Best regards,

Jure Leskovec

Hi Jure,

Thanks. I Found this in a example and let's ready!

void DocumentGeneratorOnElementInitialize(object sender, ElementInitializeEventArgs e)
{                      
    if (e.Element.Name == "TotalRegistros")
    {
        // Set the formatted value of the element 
        //var products = DataAccess.GetProducts().Where(p => p.Category.Name == "Seasonings");
        e.Element.AsField().Value = CuentaRegistros;
    }            
}

The post in the Blog it's very helpful, I was wondering how to decide for the right Datasource.

Kind Regards,

Downs
