Example from App.Query

Queries are pre-build for things like "get all authors and the books of the author in the URL" or similar (more). These are configured in the App administration. The query AuthorsWithBooks (shown to the right) is used in this example. Below you'll see us first iterate through all the items in the Authors Stream. If an author was clicked on (which places the author-id in the url), the query will also return the current Author in the Current stream as well as the CurrentBooks of that author.

No author selected - click on an author above


@{
  // get the query
  var query = App.Query["AuthorsWithBooks"];

  // get all authors from the stream Authors in the query
  var allAuthors = AsList(query["Authors"]);

  // get the current author (if available) from the stream Current
  var current = AsDynamic(query["Current"].FirstOrDefault());

  // get the books of the current author (if available) from stream CurrentBook
  var books = AsList(query["CurrentBooks"]);
}
<ul>
  @foreach(var person in allAuthors) {
    <!-- this li will have class=selected if it's the current one -->
    <li class='@(person == current ? "selected" : "")'>
      <!-- this creates a link to the current tutorial (data220) and author=id -->
      <a href='@Link.To(parameters: "data220=true&author=" + person.EntityId)'>
        @person.FirstName @person.LastName
      </a>
    </li>
  }
</ul>

@if(current != null) {
  if(Text.Has(current.Mugshot)) {
    <img loading="lazy" src="@current.Mugshot?w=100&h=100&mode=crop" width="100px" class="person float-right float-end">
  }
  <h3>Current Author: @current.FirstName @current.LastName</h3>
  <strong>Books</strong>
  <ol>
    @foreach(var book in books) {
      <li>@book.Title</li>
    }
  </ol>
} else {
  <h3>No author selected - click on an author above</h3>
}
