Hello
How can I get the Category and Tag taxons associated with a BlogPost item?

Thanks

Hi Ivan
That post doesn't seem to be what I'm looking for.
In a Listview I have
RadListViewDataItem item = e.Item as RadListViewDataItem;
BlogPost bp = (BlogPost)item.DataItem;

From which I can extract title, content, etc, but I don't know how to get the taxonomies from it. I can see bp.Organizer, but I can seem to extract values from it.
Thanks
Ryan

Hello Ryan,

You can use GetValue extension method and pass the "Category" or "Tags" as a parameter or you can use TypeDescriptior.GetProperties(object)

Got it

var cats = (Telerik.OpenAccess.TrackedList<System.Guid>)bp.GetValue("Category");

Gives me a list of Guids I can lookup
Thanks Ivan
