Get Content Provider of Content Item

  • Get Content Provider of Content Item
  • I have multiple content providers set up for my Events, allowing me to pull Events from multiple Sitefinity sites and aggregate them into a calendar for display.  Given one of these Events, is it possible to determine which content provider was used to obtain the Event?  I didn't see a property on the Event object that exposes its associated content provider.

    I would like the content provider of the Event so I will be able to allow the user to edit the event and update properties associated with the event.

    Thanks.
  • Hi Geoff,

    Try to cast the Event to the IDAtaItem and get the provider

    var prov = (myevent as IDataItem).Provider;

    Best wishes,

  • Exactly what I was looking for.  Thank you again, Ivan.
