Article Page Template contains system/include/header

It says that header region is included as Region on the Page, with works.
header.html uses "Include page (Header)" Page template & "Include page (header)" Page Schema.

That Page schema contains only 1 region, Header:

and Region Schema "[Header] Region" contains Component based on Schema "Menu".

Component is filled in region "Header" on the header.html Page. note: Core example has here 3 calls to the nested regions.

Why need to call here @Html.DxaRegion("Header") again to get it work?
Region view header first time contains model see figure (Regions count 1, Entities count 0) When execute @Html.DxaRegions() same view is called. Second time @Html.DxaEntities works (it is levelt up).

Short answer: because your Include Page itself is "transformed" into a Region (along with its nested Regions and their CPs). There is no way around this.

  • I don’t think that placing CPs directly on the Include Page changes the situation; those CPs are implicitly put in a “Main” Region, so you will still have nested Region Models: the top one represents the Include Page and it contains a nested “Main” Region Model containing the Entity Models.

  • No change indeed. Maybe there is way to call @Html.DxaEntities() in the first call (Header.cshtml), using the first region. Jan 15, 2021 at 9:51
  • Is there a real problem with this extra level? The general idea is that an Include Page can contain multiple Regions, which translate to nested Region Models. Jan 15, 2021 at 9:59
  • Thanxs. If there is no shortcut it's fine. Maybe some ms cost when not in cache. Jan 15, 2021 at 10:24
  • it applies to header/footer/tools(breadcrumb) for us. Jan 15, 2021 at 11:21
