I have one simple question:

We are using Razor templating in Tridion 2013 SP1. Is it including the Experience manager tags to the generated html? Or Do we need to add the EM tags manually?

Some tags are written out automatically, for example if you use the RenderComponentPresentation() method it will output the markup for a component presentation, and if you use RenderComponentField() it will output the markup for a field.

New in 2013 SP1 are the FieldStartMarker(), FieldValueStartMarker(), FieldEndMarker() and FieldValueEndMarker() functions, which are not in the current version of the Razor Mediator.

As a workaround on the project I am working on I created these as helper functions, in a TBB which is imported in all TBBs, I expect these will be included in the mediator in a future release...

@using Tridion.ContentManager.Templating.Expression
@using Tridion.ContentManager.ContentManagement
@using Tridion.Extensions.Mediators.Razor.Models

@helper FieldStartMarker(string fieldExpression)
    var fn = new BuiltInFunctions(TridionHelper.Engine, TridionHelper.Package);
@helper FieldEndMarker()
@helper FieldValueStartMarker(int index=0)
    @:<tcdl:FieldValue index="@index">
@helper FieldValueEndMarker()

Thank you, Will. This is our first project using Razor and we are investigating all the possibilities. Could you post a Razor Template with an example of using this helper? –  Guskermitt Feb 20 at 8:13
Theres plenty of info on importing TBBs in the Razor Mediator documentation, and also example Template code. The new Field..Marker functions are documented (in Dreamweaver syntax - but you will get the idea) in the online docs: sdllivecontent.sdl.com/LiveContent/web/… –  Will Price Feb 20 at 10:06
