I was wondering if this is possible? Have tried following cases:

Page.OrganizationalItem.ID @@Page.OrganizationalItem.ID@@
Page.Context.OrganizationalItem.ID @@Page.Context.OrganizationalItem.ID@@
Page.StructureGroup.ID @@Page.StructureGroup.ID@@
Page.OrganizationalItem @@Page.OrganizationalItem@@
Page.StructureGroup @@Page.StructureGroup@@
Page.Context @@Page.Context@@
Page.Context.ID @@Page.Context.ID@@

Haven't got any values from examples above. Do I need to develop C# functionality for this or exist any other DWT way to read SG ID field.

Alternatively to using the Dreamweaver Get Extension, you could retrieve this information with the use of a C# TBB. Something along the lines of the following should work (assuming this is a page template):

Item p = package.GetByType(ContentType.Page) as Page;
if (p != null)
{
    Page page = engine.GetObject(p.GetValue("ID")) as Page;

    if (page != null)
    {
        StructureGroup sg = page.OrganizationalItem as StructureGroup;
        package.PushItem("structureGroupId",
            package.CreateStringItem(ContentType.Text, sg.Id));
    }
}

If you're in a Component Presentation, you can use the following instead:

Page page = engine.PublishingContext.RenderContext.ContextItem as Page;

You can then simply use @@structureGroupId@@ within your DWT.

  • Thanks for suggestion. As usual we can use C# for almost everything. Just wondering if it is possible to get these property using DW command. – Bogdan Stojanovic Mar 23 '13 at 16:32
  • In that case, as detailed in other answers, you'll need the Get eXtension or a custom function. – Ant P Mar 24 '13 at 10:04

You need the Dreamweaver Get Extension for this. Check it out on https://sdltridionworld.com/community/extension_overview/dreamweaver_get_extension.aspx.

  • As suggested above, you should use Dreamweaver Get Extension or DWT Extension for this. Just keep few things in mind: 1) You need to register this in GAC on CMS server and for use the correct GacUtil.exe as GacUtil depends on .Net Framework and if you use a wrong GacUtil, you will still see a success for Registration but still you would not be able to load the DWT extension 2) You MAY need to restart you Tridion Services, COM+ and may be IIS as well – Pankaj Gaur Mar 22 '13 at 12:26
