I'm new to Tridion and trying to update a component's metadata field from Core Service API through .Net code and got to know the following article:


I'm wondering how to get the Fields property/class in my project. Could you please shed some light on it?

// load the schema
var schemaFields = client.ReadSchemaFields(SCHEMA_URI, true, DEFAULT_READ_OPTIONS);

// load a component based on that schema
var component = (ComponentData)client.Read(COMPONENT_URI, DEFAULT_READ_OPTIONS);

// build a magical Fields object from it
var fields = Fields.ForContentOf(schemaFields, component);

// let's first quickly list all values of all fields
foreach (var field in fields)
    Console.WriteLine(string.Format("{0} (Type={1})", field.Name, field.Type));
    foreach (var value in field.Values)
            Console.WriteLine("\t" + value);
  • any luck Anthony?
