Access 2sxc App Data from outside 2sxc

Feb 22, 2016 at 5:32 PM
Hi All,

Is there a simple way to access the data stored in a 2sxc App from a normal Razor file which is NOT inheriting from ToSic.SexyContent.Razor.SexyContentWebPage.

My situation is that I have another module which supports Razor Templating and I want to pull in some data stored in a 2sxc App into that Module (Which will only work with Razor files inheriting from DotNetNuke.Web.Razor.DotNetNukeWebPage)

Thanks in advance...

I'm sure it can be done, but lots of things will be missing - like AsDynamic, Data, the correct RenderPage etc.

You would have avoid these to re-include all these things, which would be quite a lot of work. it's easy, but I'm convinced it will take you a few hours to get to work, probably more than you're willing to invest.

Sorry, seems I basically asked this question twice and didn't even realise... too many hours at the desk!!! Anyway...

I worked it out...

Added this to the other Razor View:
private static AppAndDataHelpers _appAndDataHelpers;
        private static AppAndDataHelpers AppAndDataHelpers
                if (_appAndDataHelpers == null)
                    var moduleInfo = DotNetNuke.Entities.Modules.ModuleController.Instance.GetModule(ModuleIdOf2xcModule, TabIdOf2xcModule, false);
                    int? appId = null;
                    if (!appId.HasValue)
                        appId = SexyContent.GetAppIdFromModule(moduleInfo);
                    var zoneId = SexyContent.GetZoneID(moduleInfo.PortalID);
                    SexyContent Sexy = new SexyContent(zoneId.Value, appId.Value, true, moduleInfo.OwnerPortalID);
                    var viewDataSource = Sexy.GetViewDataSource(moduleInfo.ModuleID, SexyContent.HasEditPermission(moduleInfo), Sexy.ContentGroups.GetContentGroupForModule(moduleInfo.ModuleID).Template);
                    _appAndDataHelpers = new AppAndDataHelpers(Sexy, moduleInfo, (ToSic.SexyContent.DataSources.ViewDataSource)viewDataSource, Sexy.App);
                return _appAndDataHelpers;
