Delivery API - Nodes

Created by Contensis product team on 23 Oct 2020

There is a possibility that on upgrade that there may be a conflict between these types if both .NET Delivery API and Contensis WebAPI are referenced within either a Razor view or an AppCode source code file, i.e.

using Zengenti.Contensis.Delivery;

using Contensis.Framework.Web;
If you happen to have a declaration of a Node defined in your code, such as these examples below:
Node current =  new NodeFactory().Load("/path/to/webpage.aspx”);

@helper breadcrumb2(Node node)


    //Helper code here


foreach(Node node in collectionOfContent) {

//Code within loops goes here


then you will likely see the following error after upgrade:

error CS0104: 'Node' is an ambiguous reference between 'Zengenti.Contensis.Delivery.Node' and 'Contensis.Framework.Web.Node'

In order to resolve this. In most cases you can change the Node type to either a ContentNode or FolderNode type.

If you still need to use the Node type for our WebAPI then you can alias it like so.

@using Node = Contensis.Framework.Web.Node

If you use this approach, you may need to refactor your code at a later date if you wish to start using nodes from SiteView for your navigation
